How to Style a Fall Flannel Cape Vest

Can you feel it? Fall is in the air! Which means, it's time to break out all things, comfy, cozy, warm, and wonderful. Along with your fuzzy boots, favorite leggings, coziest sweaters, and snuggliest hats, you are going to want to add Hey Mavens!'s Fall Flannel Cape Vest to your rotation.

What is a  Fall Flannel Cape Vest?

First things first, what exactly are we talking about here? A Fall Flannel Cape Vest is a Hey Mavens! original design that dates back to the founding of the company. One of the few items that Hey Mavens! produces in Nashville that isn't strictly lingerie, this plaid garment is a cross between a wearable blanket, a cape, a vest, and a wrap. Constructed from 100% cotton flannel, and featured in four signature checks, tartans, or plaids, these versatile vests are easy to wear -- just pop them on top of your favorite fall outfit for an instant upgrade!

Speaking of upgrades, what's new this year?

If you've been following Hey Mavens! since 2022 or before, you know that these delicious vests are usually just that... a vest. This year, we are adding a little update for 2023. As an option, you will be able to select sleeves as an option! Of course, we will have the sleeveless, original style available, but with the addition of a three-quarter length sleeve, we think these capes are getting and extra oomph! Even warmer and cozier than before, the additional sleeve will add a much-needed layer of warmth when those cool autumn breezes flow through.

On top of that, each and every Fall Flannel Cape Vest will now have patch pockets on the outside of the garment. Designed to fit at least an iPhone, with room for whatever else your heart desires. Happily, these pockets will keep your hands warm in the winter months, and are super cute!
