You’ve probably already seen them on fashionistas and celebrities everywhere. And only a small number of people can consider themselves lucky, owning a monogrammed Burberry one. You guessed it – I’m talking about blanket ponchos!

While normal shoppers are still hung up on capes and parkas, the blanket poncho became the latest trend. Preferably worn on light pre-autumn days, it is the perfect combination of your all-time favorite poncho and your comfy couch-blanket. And somehow it still looks cool!

Celebrities like Olivia Palermo and Sarah Jessica Parker (and of course EVERY.SINGLE. Burberry model) are wearing Burberry blanket ponchos in bold tartan pattern and with their initials on the front. If you're looking for a cheaper version there are plenty options to choose from to also follow this trend.  Because online stores as well as fashion chains picked up quickly on the trend. Asos and Zara offer a large variety of blanket ponchos and shawls in Aztec patterns, check or uni-colored. With fringe or without. Wool or knit. Monotone or color-block. There is a blanket poncho for everyone!

When it comes to myself, I had my doubts. Could this really be practical? And will it really keep me warm? Well, I guess I’ll have to find out…
