Cara Delevingne leads a storm of models at Burberry Prorsum AW14

The Burberry Prorsum fashion show usually creates an IT look for the season, and for Autumn/Winter 14, that looks to be the Blanket Coat.

It crept up in Chloe's Pre-Fall 2014 collection, but when Cara Delevingne led a storm of models down the runway each with their own initialed ponchos, the look was dictated to us.

It was inevitable: this is the coat shape of the season.

Not only are these pieces super cosy, but they're ultra-chic too. They turn your most basic looks into something more statement, plus they look just as good thrown over your favourite jeans and boots combo, as they do over a dress or body-skimming skirt.

The key to getting this look right is balance, you need to contrast the oversize top with something more fitted on the bottom, and if you're a little on the short side chunky heels are a must, you don't want this look to drown you.

We love how Olivia Palermo styled hers with tailored shorts and over-the-knee boots, a cute look for date night and Sarah Jessica Parker keeps hers ultra-chic paired with jeans.
