Capes have been all over fashion-magazine editorials for fall, but they're not the easiest pieces to wear for busy New Yorkers running around town. (Street-style blogger Garance Doré documents the cape’s pitfalls splendidly here.) This draped wool jacket has the drapey cut of a cape, but with more practical sleeves and pockets. It can be worn on its own or used as a layering piece on colder nights.
