Simplicity capes, also called modesty capes, are all the rage right now. Simplicity capes have been worn by celebrities like Heidi Klum and Cardi B, but aren't exclusive to the fashion industry. The capes, which are made from stretchy fabrics, help cover your torso and upper thighs, leaving your arms, legs, and shoulders exposed.

While capes have been worn for modesty reasons, we recently tested 11 different capes in our Lab to determine which ones are the best for everyday wear. We looked at quality, construction, fit, and versatility, such as keeping the front and back from touching each other, ease of fastening and zipper placement, and which capes cover the most. Today, we're sharing the results of our lab testing and our recommendations for the best simplicity capes of 2022.
