Kate Beckinsale Makes a Case for the Blanket Coat

When you get to this point in the season, dressing for the cold weather starts to feel a little tiresome. You often end up relying on the same few outerwear styles you have on rotation. So if you're already tired of the fur coat and puffer jacket crazes, we have another unique option worth keeping in rotation. Meet the blanket coat.

You might also know it as a poncho or could re-create a similar look with an oversize scarf. Whatever you call it, this look is going to be your best friend this season because of its versatility and warmth. Just ask Kate Beckinsale, who recently made a majorly stylish case for the style.

In her case, she wore a checked Burberry poncho and paired it with slim-leg trousers and simple Jimmy Choo pumps. Depending on the weather and your sartorial mood, you can wear it wrapped up like Beckinsale did, let it hang open, or even drape it loosely around your shoulders for a more casual vibe. In other words, this is one item that will be totally worth it when it comes down to the cost-per-wear.
