Grin and bare it: Coleen Rooney braves the freezing temperatures in an Alice by Temperley cape as she arrives at Old Trafford on Boxing Day

Given the freezing temperatures yesterday, it perhaps wasn’t the most sensible garment.

But it didn’t stop Coleen Rooney opting for a £440 Alice by Temperley cape which exposed her bare forearms as she arrived to watch her husband Wayne play for Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The garment, which was last popular in the Sixties, has been making something of a comeback in recent months.

In the past few weeks, Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller, Amanda Holden and Katherine Jenkins have all been seen wearing capes.

Samantha Cameron was even spotted wearing a similar item earlier this year during the general election campaign.

The WAG teamed up pricey cape with a monochrome striped dress and high-heeled shoe boots as she ventured out on Boxing Day.

Boxing Day outing: Coleen was joined by her son Kai, parents Tony and Colette McLoughlin and her sister Rosie

Mrs Rooney, 24, brought the couple’s 13-month old son Kai along to the game against Sunderland, which United won 2-0.

They were joined by Coleen’s parents Tony and Colette McLoughlin and her sister, Rosie, 12, for the day out.

The family will be jetting out for a £30,000 Disney-themed Caribbean cruise on Tuesday - a trip which has been paid for by her husband and will include stops in Aruba, Martinique, Barbados, Grand Cayman and Costa Maya.

Unfortunately for the footballer, he will have to remain in the UK because of club commitments.

The McLoughlins and Rooneys were thrilled to have Rosie home for Christmas after she spend a lot of the year in hospital.

Rosie suffers from Rett Syndrome and was only released from Alder Hey Children's Hospital just in time for Christmas.

Coleen told Hello! magazine last week: 'Rosie has had a rough year.

'We never really know for sure until the last minute, but it would make all our Christmases if she can be there.'

On Saturday, the family decided to have a rest from the kitchen and enjoyed Christmas dinner at The Sir Thomas Street Hotel in Liverpool.

Showing she's a hardy woman, Coleen braved the -7C temperatures in a little black dress and no stockings.
