This is such a flattering and fashionable cape, dress it up over a dress, or casual with jeans & boots. I bought the taupe/tan color and it is just beautiful and the design is quite lovely, love the hood with fur trim. Loads of compliments the first time I wore it. It is between light & mid weight...I can see wearing this in the summer in the evenings when it cools down. I'm seriously considering buying it in black!
