Take 10 Challenge 7: ASOS Cape

One of the best things about the Take 10 project is that I get to try trends that I don't really have the nerve to wear. Two such trends are the camel and the trends. The Take 10 sponsor this month was ASOS who offered to send us a coat and we decided on a camel cape, so it was me trying two trends that I wanted to.

Unfortunately, I realised that neither the camel trend, nor the cape trend are not for me. Nothing I did made the cape look good on me and I felt kinda frumpy in it :S The other girls wore the cape so amazingly but unfortunately, I can't see myself wearing this cape again, and am predicting a future of it collecting dust in my cupboard, which is such a shame.
Not to say it's not a good cape though. It is stylish, just not my style and it did keep me warm while I was out and about.

Here's how everyone else wore it:

Check out how all the other girls wore theirs:

Jen from A Little Bird Told Me
MJ from Dreaming Spires & Old Car Tyres
Sherin from HiFashion
Jazmine from Jazzabelle's Diary
Vicki from Magpie Girl
Adele from Molto Curiosa
Paula of Pinkbow 
Ellie of Pretty Much Penniless
Sabine from Psynopsis
Sarah from We Shop Therefore We Are

How would you have worn this and what do you think of everyone's styling?

It's a shame you don't feel comfortable in it as I think it looks quite great on you :)

Funnily enough, I was looking at capes yesterday as I need a bit of a lighter jacket for when I go to Budapest. Hmmm...

You're mental- you look stunning in it- it's so classy!
I know what you mean about just not feeling "right" in something though- you'd never relax if you were to try and wear something that made you feel uncomfortable.
Can I also say your hair is looking absolutely amazing at the moment! Not that it ever didn't but it looks PARTICULARLY fabby right now. Are you doing anything new with it?

Susie said...

I have to disagree with you here--I really like the cape on you! I think camel really suits you too!:)

wardrobemag said...

I absolutely love capes, they're so expensive though. Topshop have some nice ones, but because I'm so petite I'm not sure if they would look good on me and I haven't had the chance to try one on yet!

I don't think I really like the camel trend. Looks good on some people but it's not for me.

I think it looks good on you though. Perhaps just wear without the hood up!

It looks like it suits you, to me! Fairytale-hip.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ooh, you totally rock this cape, Sherin - I want, I want!! :)

Leia said...

Um... if you're not going to wear it, can you send it to me, please? Pretty please? With a cherry on top?!

I actually think it looks really good on you. But I'm going to pretend it doesn't... so I can steal it. :P

It looks gorgeous on you but then again, if you don't feel comfortable in it then it's not for you.

PinkBow said...

oh sherin, i think it looks really good on you. and i like how you have worn it in different ways in your pics.

WeShop said...

I think this really suits you and it's super-cute with the hood up. xx

tanvii.com said...

Can I be selfish and ask you to send it to me since you do not want it? ;) But it does look fab on you

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Well I think you look absolutely FABULOUS in it, Sherin!! I think it suits you well. But of course if something makes you uncomfortable, it's simply not worth it...

Jen said...

Aw Sherin, I think it looks great on you! Love the coordinated shoes and it's fab with the hood up and your hair tumbling out. Embrace the cape! :) xx

E is for Eleanor said...

The shoes look fab with it, I totally think you pull it off :) I was nervous about it too! x

Pearl Westwood said...

Aww I think it looks good, but you know when it doenst feel right, it just doenst!

Amina said...

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

It's so cute but I definitely have those pieces that I know I'm just never going to wear...

Kavery said...

I think you've styled it well with the matching shoes. Perhaps after seeing your photos you'll take another look at the coat?

Tasha said...

I love the camel shade! I really like the idea of cute capes. And I don't think you look bad, but I think this cape is made differently then most. I bet you would look really pretty in a better suited cape. Your hair and shoes look fabulous!

Vicki said...

aw i think it looks lovely on you!! the length hits you right and the colour is lovely with your hair! :) xo

thingsIlove said...

Lee Oliveira said...

I am with you.. not really your best colour..
Did you try another one?

Cindy Whitehead said...

I think it looks very cute on you. Try wearing it a few times and really "owning" the look - you may change your mind (-:

Audrey Allure said...
