The It coat: Blanket Coat

With the weather getting nippy, I think its the prefect time to get those cosy blankets out. What’s best? This season you can actually wear yours. Ever since I saw Cara Delevinge strut her folklore inspired blanket coat from Burberry, I’ve been hooked. But the Burberry’s prize tag gave me a chill. My high-street version is just as awesome. The blanket coat/wrap is the kimono of autumn-winter. The loose silhouette of the garment does a great job of wrapping and protecting your body whilst keeping you fashionably cool.

I love the versatility of this garment: It can be belted to give some form or worn like a long cardigan or simply like a big scarf.

I have paired my plaid style blanket coat with a simple black T-shirt and leggings. I have added a berry colored tote as berry/ burgundy is my favourite autumn colour. It also co-ordinates with the coat. I have used simple silver accessories to compliment the look as I wanted to keep the attention on my blanket coat–the “It” coat for this autumn.

    Hi Dan! Love the chic coat! It reminds me of the Burberry one Cara Delevingne wore during Fashion Week 🙂 – Lena

      Thanks Lena. I brought this coat as I thought the colour scheme was similar to Burberry’s 🙂
