Whatever you want to call this piece of clothing – a blanket, a jacket, a cape or a poncho, there’s no denying that Burberry Prorsum‘s check wool and cashmere cape from the Fall 2014 show has been declared the latest must-have item for fall and winter. The popularity of this new cape trend is mostly owed to stylish celebs and It girls like Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sarah Jessica Parker who have all been spotted being cosily wrapped in their monogrammed Burberry blanket capes out and about to fight off the chilly weather. If you love the blanket cape trend, but can’t casually drop $1,395 (not that you could anyway since the Burberry cape is already sold out everywhere), keep on reading to find a few budget-frienldy alternatives.

Forever 21 Block-Patterned Shawl

Update (08/26/2015): Forever 21 might call this a shawl, but I call it a poncho. One that looks familiarly similar to the Burberry version above. On F21’s costs only $32.90.

I remember Rag & Bone most notably for their amazing shoes, but after seeing this cool yet preppy yet sexy plunging v-neck sweater here, I think I might have to start taking a closer look at their clothing line as well. What I really like about this sweater is the juxtaposition of the preppy design against the super sexy deep v-neck. But would I be willing to spend $395 on this – admittedly very stylish – sweater? Probably not.

I’m quite excited about today’s Real vs. Steal feature. Maybe it’s because it’s not yet another shoe this time or maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for all things nautical and sparkling and Oscar de la Renta (who isn’t, right?). Maybe it’s a combination of all these things. Fact is: I’ve been hugely obsessed with this adorable striped sequin sweater by Oscar de la Renta from the very first moment I spotted it on Net-A-Porter. It was love at first sight! I mean, stripes and sequins, does it ever get better than these two? I highly doubt so. But even though I really, really loooove Oscar de la Renta, dropping almost 2k on a sweater is simply beyond my imagination.

Ann Taylor Sequin Striped Sweater

HOT DEAL: Limited time offer! Extra 40% off sale styles at Ann Taylor! No promotional code needed, discount will be applied automatically at checkout. Exclusions may apply.

I’ve almost buried my dream of ever coming across another such gorgeous sequin stripe sweater as the Oscar de la Renta one, but today I accidentally stumbled upon this lovely striped sweater style by Ann Taylor and I knew this was the perfect steal for the OdlR real deal above. The colors vary slightly, but the rest of the design is pretty much spot-on. And did I mention this sweater (which is also available in petite sizes by the way) is currently on sale for $39.88 (down from $89.50)? But the best part yet? Ann Taylor is currently having a promotion where customers get an extra 40% off sale items which means this Oscar de la Renta sweater dupe can be yours for a steal deal worthy $23.93! Let that price sink in for a moment. Now can we get a round of applause here, please?

You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?

I really don’t want to kiss summer goodbye, but fall is officially around the corner. And a seasonal change often means what? Of course: color shifts and a new wardrob! Below I’ve put together a fall outfit with some of my favorite fall essentials in the usual autumny, earthy tones. You like it? What are your favorite items to wear in the fall?
