In fashion, you can always count on history to repeat itself. First spotted at Burberry’s autumn/ winter 2014 catwalk show on an army of models led by Cara Delevingne, blankets are a key trend to look out for once the cooler weather sets in. This seasons the models have resurrected the old medieval favorite: the cape, but with monograms (we’re obsessed). Models are ditching their bulky winter coats and cardigans for Burberry’s signature poncho to stop hiding their fabulous outfits, a cape lets your unique fashion sense shine through, especially if you’re Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara Delevingne, Malaika Firth, Sara Jessica Parker, Olivia Palermo and more. Each model stunner rocks their monogrammed Burberry cape in different ways from dressed up to dressed down and everything in between. Earlier this week, Rosie was seen wearing the poncho with a pair of sexy black suede over-the-knee-boots matching her black monogrammed initials printed on the stunning cape. The Burberry Prorsum cape is the must-have fashion piece of the season costing £895.
