fashion plate, superhero, or sherlock holmes?

I have decided that I want a cape.Is this a bad idea?Well first, don't anyone tell my friend, Rhett, about this because he will probably point and laugh and tell me it's a horrible idea.

I don't have in mind Wonder Woman garb (although I did go through a lengthy Woman Woman phase as a young girl - down to the Underoos). And I don't have in a mind a Martha Getting Sprung From Camp Cupcake Poncho.

What I have pictured is more cozy, but tailored. See how this girl here looks so utterly British? Then there is this woman who looks prepared to jump off the white Cliffs of Dover or an extra from a Eurethymics video. Not what I'm going for... I do wonder, when a woman is more zaftig and is wearing a cape/shawl does she just look like she's wrapped in a blanket? What would Rhett would say?
