Serena Williams Just Rocked One of the Season’s Hottest (Literally) Trends

From the Emmys red carpet to fashion week, one trend is really having a moment this fall: capes. The latest celeb to try out the superhero-approved craze? Serena Williams.

The 38-year-old tennis star arrived at Harriet’s Rooftop last night in West Hollywood, California, to celebrate the Home Bridge Partnership between the Yetunde Price Resource Center and Apartment List rocking a personalized monogrammed Burberry cape.

Williams’s topper is from the pre-Roberto Tisci days of Burberry, and hit the scene in the finale of the fashion house’s 2014 fall/winter show. Following its debut, every fashion “it” girl, from Cara DeLevingne to Sarah Jessica Parker, immediately swooped up one of their own monogrammed versions. It appears Williams did, too.

Sadly, the cape is no longer available, but you can get a similar blanket coat look with the Burberry Prorsum mega check wool and cashmere cape ($1,495). Just don’t forget to get your initials stitched in à la Serena.

Williams paired the lightweight cashmere-wool cape with a burnt orange asymmetrical-hem dress featuring tortoise shell buttons and a V-neck. If you’re digging the look, the Madewell button-front tank sweater dress ($60) and the Ali & Jay Take Me Downtown twist rib dress ($117) put out similar vibes.

She completed her outfit with black suede over-the-knee boots, similar to the Vince Camuto Hailie over the knee boots ($179), Marc Fisher LTD’s Arlette over the knee boots ($240) or Stuart Weitzman’s Lowland OTK boots ($798), all of which are both sexy and cozy.

Suffice it to say, Serena’s fall dressing game is aces
