That is the question troubling thousands of world leaders everywhere. I know it is 40 odd degrees and 90% humidity, however, you still need to plan these things and I am seeing a lot of interesting cape chat around the world. Question is do you cape it, or coat it? Most winter collections are not containing capes yet in HK so I found these ones for you. This stunning simple number is from Isabelle Oliver's 365 collection (worth checking out, clean lines, wardrobe basics), as featured on the essential read Liberty London Girl (thanks for that one LLG!). Fabulous in black or cream (219 GBP). Or try this this more budget friendly option (75 GBP) at Warehouse with cute button details.
If you are not a cape crusader (sorry I could not resist) head to my favourite coat venue Zara (who are launching online shopping on Sept 2nd FYI), year after year they produce similar designer styles superbly well and you are often left with just enough money for new shoes. Look at the classic camel below, yummy, belt it, button it or just look it, it is gorgeous and so simple. Priced at HK$1,299 and in store now, but be warned, the small sizes are running out. If you can't quite buy a coat yet they have some lovely military style jackets in cream, olive and black for between HK$899 and HK$1,200 ish, and a nice tweed inspired blazer with elbow patches (very autumn/winter 2010) for HK$899.
