Crave or Save – Burberry vs. Topshop


The poncho is back this season thanks to Burberry ending their AW14 runway show by sending each model out wearing a blanket personalised with their initials on them. This Autumn, get ready to see the trend everywhere!

If you’ve got the cash to splurge and you want the trend from the brand that started it, then pre-order the personalised colour block check Burberry blanket poncho for £895. It’ll end up being one of those pieces you keep forever and if one your kids or grandkids somehow ends up with your initials, you can pass it down the line.

Whichever one you decide to go for, there are tons of ways to style it. The jeans and boots look seems to be the way to go. The trend has already been seen on Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Suki Waterhouse.
