I find capes both glamorous and somewhat utilitarian, but I don't really own any because I don't like to be holding my purse all the time. There was a reason Chanel added shoulder straps to her bags in the 1920s: we got tons of shit to do! Now Mwongeli shows how to rock the cape look while keeping her hands free for a graceful bike ride.
