Poncho Fever

Fashion savvy readers will have noticed the insane new trend of wearing a blanket as outerwear! Thanks to Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Ready-to-wear collection (I posted about their graffiti trench coats a while back), high street versions have been cropping up all over the place! At home I love to be cosy with a blanket wrapped round me, walking down the street with one? Will it have the same effect?

Cara Delevingne obviously pulls off this look and I have to admit I could be tempted to wear this in the depth of winter. Who am I kidding, at £895 and £200 for your initials on, I’ll stick to high street.

CD - burberryI came across a stunning black Burberry version on their website, still £495 is way too much for a glorified throw!

I’ve spotted some celebs in much more casual looking wraps and some amazing high-street versions.

Or even better, their £45.99 version!

Unfortunately through, I get mocked from my other half for wearing my wonderful version of this from Next so you might not catch me wearing one this autumn/winter! Unless I can causally sneak past him without noticing I wearing a blanket?! 😉 I’m sure it can be done!

Just a little self advertising before I go….
