Last month’s “Currently Coveting” post featured one of my favorite items for fall: the Burberry blanket. First spotted during New York Fashion Week last February, it has quickly become a very popular item to own. Is it a blanket, a throw, a poncho, a cape? Who knows! One thing that is certain is, with its colorful patchwork and chic monogram feature, it is the number one outerwear that I want draped around my shoulders for fall. I know for a fact that I am not alone in my obsession with this updated cape. Several celebrities (Sarah Jessica Parker, Olivia Palermo, Cara Delevingne) have been seen sporting it, personalized with their famous initials, and it’s been in several magazines including the cover of InStyle’s October issue. We may all have cape fever, but, that being said, it’s a bit overpriced for what’s essentially a blanket. Now that I have started my fall shopping, I have noticed that several stores are carrying their own style of this trend. Like Burberry’s version, they come in interesting patterns like patchwork, houndstooth, and plaid. Whether you drape it, belt it, or pin it closed, you really can’t go wrong by sporting this trend. Because of its style, it can be worn as a coat or accessory. Create the perfect fall outfit by pairing it with your favorite skinny jeans, a blouse, and over the knee boots. If you think this is strictly a fall item, think again! When we make the transition from fall to winter, drape it over your coat for a chic way to fight the frigid temperatures. Take a look at the ponchos that I have rounded up. Hopefully you’ll find the perfect one for you that will make you forget all about the Burberry blanket.
