There’s a trend that will be keeping us toasty and warm this season and its the gorgeous blanket coat. Shown by Burberry Prorsum in last year’s collection with models wearing patterned and monogrammed blanket coats on the runway and outside the show, the blanket coat has now become a staple winter element.
As fall creeps up on us and the nights turn chilly while the mornings are frosty, we can tell that winter is just a stones skip away. The blanket coat, which also comes in a vest form, is a great way to add a little bit of comfort chic to your wintery wardrobe.
This year, the blanket coat is all about minimalism. Patterns have been replaced for block colours or classic designs like stripes or checks, while brighter colours have been swapped for a chic camel and a sleek grey – an outfit that wouldn’t be out of place in a Parisian or New York winter.
It’s not just coats receiving the blanket treatment with vests, jackets, ponchos and capes ready to wrap you up this winter. To keep the look from appearing too bulky, keep your underneath layers fitted and sleek and add a pair of boots and some great accessories.
Keep yourself warm by wrapping up in a blanket coat to keep your insides toasty and keep your outside chic. Check out some of our top picks for this season below.
