When Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn walked down the Burberry catwalk in monogrammed blanket ponchos, a new AW14 style staple was born. If you buy one key item this season make it a statement blanket coat; after all, what could be more satisfying than commuting in your duvet?
Unfortunately, any old blanket from your cupboard won’t cut it- there’s an art to wrapping up and still looking cool. Here, we have rounded up our favourite blanket coats for every budget, so you can transition into autumn in style.
Splurge- over £100
Burberry’s original wool and cashmere offering is the ultimate choice for fashionistas. An eye-watering £800, the blanket poncho is knitted in muted yellows, reds and blues and patterned with Apache-style zig zags. Make like Cara Delevingne and get it monogrammed with your initials.
If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to Burberry but you still want to splurge on a quality piece, head to Zara for this mink coloured coat. With a bit more shape than a blanket poncho, the wide cape-style sleeves still give the desired loose fit- and the £149 price tag is purse friendly.
This grey and blue cape from Warehouse is our top pick at Savoo. A bargain at £30, it has the same open front finish and all over check design as the Burberry design, but won’t set you back a small fortune.
Alternatively, check out River Island‘s £35 black Aztec print cape, which comes with a faux fur collar and tassel trim.
