No, this is not a blanket and it is certainly not a ponch-no. Far from the billowing accessory that superheroes wear, this autumnal cape is refined, yet delightfully rustic. Capes came in all fabrics—from formal to frivolous—on fall runways and this one evokes evenings in front of a fire sipping spiked apple cider. Or, how about riding through the country in a vintage whip, admiring the vivid turn of foliage?

Knit from cashmere and wool, all tied together with a touch of goat leather, this striped style from Talitha is also a piece of art; it was crafted by artisans in New Delhi. All in all, it adds up to the perfect piece of autumnal outerwear.
