Fashion month is behind us and it's time to sum up the impressions: what's hot, what's not, what we will be proudly wearing this Fall/Winter, which items are just a trend of the moment and which ones we will keep in our closets for more than just a season. If you're looking for a piece that will definitely be a statement item, look fashionable with almost anything you're wearing and keep you warm in upcoming cold months, you should consider getting yourself a chic, voluminous blanket coat. Burberry catwalk show from last season showed us blanked-coated girls, led by famous Cara Delevingne, looking oh-so-effortlessly-chic with each girl's initials embroidered on these asymmetrical blanket ponchos and now it's official: blankets are the new coats!
Soon after aforementioned Burberry show, we've seen some very fashionable girls like Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Sarah Jessica Parker and others sporting this "must have" item of the year with their own monograms on it.

Ever since "the Burberry blanket coat fever", celebs and fashionistas from all over the globe have been competing who's wearing the blanket coat best, while biggest fashion houses incorporated it in their collections. You can opt out for dark or very light colors for an infallible outfit, or choose vibrant colors like Kate Moss did, and make a bold look. French fashionista Clemence Poesy matched her black blanket coat with mustard and light pink and once again has proven her impeccable taste in fashion.

It's just perfect for you if you need an investment piece that is versatile, looks cool, plus it gives you comfort and warmth. There is just one downside: it requires a bit dressier outfit since it wouldn't look so fab with tracksuits or running sneakers. It comes in a wide range of shapes, colors and textures, so it gives you plenty possibilities how to wear it. You can match it with over the knee boots, both flat and high heeled, and thick winter shorts/skirt for a sexier look, or with blue jeans for a more demure combo.
As both of us most of the time like to look elegant and chic, we will be definitely embracing this trend.
