Ever-fashionable Brit Alexa Chung is the latest in a long line of stars to layer on Burberry Prorsum’s hottest fall must-have: the blanket poncho. The street style star donned the color-blocked outerwear monogrammed with her initials draped over a chic black peacoat and skinny jeans as she stepped out in New York City. Chung styled her lust-worthy look with leopard-print Pierre Hardy ankle boots and a structured black handbag.
The now infamous Burberry Prorsum checked cape first made a splash when it debuted on Cara Delevingne during the brand’s fall/winter 2014 show, and has since been spotted on celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Olivia Palermo. The luxe piece is inspired by traditional equestrian blankets and crafted in a cozy blend of wool and cashmere, making it the perfect layering piece (à la Alexa) or coat replacement as the temperatures continue to drop.
