Kate’s Clothing sent over this little gem for me to review. If you love goth clothing or alternative clothing, be sure to check them out! I was actually surprised to find out that Necessary Evil is a house brand of Kate’s Clothing. It’s a brand I’ve been seeing everywhere since I was a little baby bat hanging out at the local goth shop.
This cape is pretty awesome. I was surprised with how versatile it is compared to the other blanket capes I own. While my blanket capes are super billowy and huge (great for winter) this little guy is surprisingly flattering and hits at just the right height on my thigh for my stay-ups to show.
My only negative thoughts are the buttons. For some reason they decided to put a small covert button in the inner clasp and a big toggle for the outside clasp that’s loosely held in place using a ribbon. Which is rather annoying because it doesn’t hold it in place very well and looks super awkward (you can see it in the last image below).
Other than the awkward toggle, I think I’m going to get some serious use out of this cape. Considering it is, well, a cape. Would you ever wear a cape? I think we should bring capes back! Who’s with me?
I’m wearing a cape by Necessary Clothing VIA Kate’s Clothing*, button down from ROMWE, shorts are by Reverse, the stay-up stockings are from Asos and oxfords from Forever 21, “teen witch” pin is from PYLO, rings are from Ceduna Jewellery and Metalhead jewellery and finally! The catfish bones are from Lady lock’s Creations.
