Statement piece
The bright red of this cape will turn heads. Perfect with skinny jeans and casual sneakers in spring for a weekend brunch or boots and a thick sweater in the fall. Loved this!!

YES
This is a very very vibrant red. As a virgo I usually tend to blend in with my pallette but this was just way too cute to not get. I liked how heavy and warm it was. It was weird but I felt like I could wear it outside in 40 degree weather without freezing to death but also inside Ikea without getting hot. It was funny wearing it to Ikea though because I matched some of their bold colored furniture sections. I definitely blended then :)

fun but a little overwhelming...
The color is perfect. The fabric is warm. The only downside is that it wasn't chic enough to be flattering.

Little red riding hood
Super great cape jacket, but much more red than coral as photos on website indicated. Would be great for fall. even though it's a fantastic thick material, there's not quite enough coverage for winter.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
This is one of my favorite rentals, if not my favorite rental of all time. This is seriously the cutest cape jacket ever. I kept it for several weeks and wore it everywhere. People literally stopped me everywhere I went asking where I got the jacket. I was like a walking advertisement for RTR! I would buy this if I could afford it! But will resort to renting it again and again. Highly recommend.

I have received so many compliments!
I am so glad I picked this for my unlimited shipment because I want to wear it over and over. It shouldn't be worn for the purpose of keeping warm, but it is certainly perfect on a slightly chilly day! Vibrant color, and flawless.

Playful and stylish!
Loving this!!! Rent if you want to feel like a cross between a super hero, Gretel and a trendy style maker. Basically, a woman who can do anything :-). My husband lights up - in a great way - whenever I wear it and seeing him smile is just fab. Indigo jeans, black silk turtleneck, great heels, navy, red and black Hermes scarf. Instant style! I'm a solid 14. Should have ordered the small. Take the risk and play a little...

Large - fun cape/vest
Although I didn't actually get to wear this, I thought it was pretty cute. It runs large, so I'd get a smaller size that usual. It is made of pretty thick material, so it needs to be a rather chilly day to wear it.

This was really cute - but a LOT heavier than I expected.
I was surprised how heavy the coat was overall - super cute and high quality. It was fine from a fit standpoint, but b/c I had rented on my unlimited for more "everyday" it wasn't easy to wear in the South yet (still too warm here!) Would be great for someone getting in and out of cars/ houses in true winter.

Show stopper!!
Ladies! This red cape is stunning and you will receive so many compliments. It runs very large!! The material is thick and heavy but due to the cape nature, it will not keep you warm in cold, cold weather.

Classy!
Beautiful, rich color in a thick quality fabric. It is heavy in weight, but because of the exposed arms, it will not keep you very warm. It is a fashion piece. I would definitely rent it again.

Statement coat
Rented this as part of my unlimited. It was the perfect cape for a cool rainy date. I got compliments by random strangers. Very beautiful red color and would be great for a fall or early spring day in New England.

Perfect!
If you are looking for an elegant addition to your outfit, this is just perfect! There are three buttons and the top one flips up the collar to give it a more modern, edgy look. Love it!

BOLD❤
It was a cute cape that I had fun wearing but didn't keep me warm at all. Great if it's 70 degrees out and there's a chill in the air from a breeze but nothing more. It's definitely a statement piece.

Great piece, great color, tons of compliments!
This piece was great. Fit a bit large, great color, very high quality fabric - the only complaint was that it wasn't super functional. There was no button or latch under the arm so FYI it is a true cape. Highly recommend!

Such a cute cape--so many compliments!
This thing is gorgeous. It's perfect for day time or over a dress for evening. I rented it with Unlimited; it's the kind of thing I would never buy, but I loved being a cape wearing girl for a couple of days!! The only thing is one of the buttons came loose. Also, be warned, this is NOT for warmth. But I wore it with a fur vest underneath and I was fine in 40 degree weather.

Perfect for exploring the fall foliage in New England. Standout color!
This cape was the best fall accessory you could ask for. People stopped me everywhere I went to ask where it was from. Warm enough for a cool day.

Makes a statement, runs big.
This cape really makes a statement, so be prepared. It's as shockingly red as it shows in the photo, and it has a high collar (I liked it "popped up" better than folded down). It runs very large. I am a true size M on top and if I would have tried this on in a store, I would have ended up buying an XS. Go with the S/P unless you have a very large chest, broad shoulders, and are 5'8" or taller. I wore it out three times and each time, strangers made a "little red riding hood" comment to me. Very cool piece, but must be worn with a ton of confidence!

Stunning shade of red.
Normally I love capes but there was something about this one that just did not do it for me. Perhaps it is the fact that while this cape is a stunning shade of red, it does nothing to flatter the body. It simply sits on you. Maybe it is because I am busty but that still does not deter me from trying out more capes - since most of the time they work well with my body shape.

Disappointing selection
The material is not what you would expect from the pictures. I received the P/S and it was big, clunky, and not very flattering. Returned without wearing.
