Burberry Prorsum

Update: This post has been updated on November 15, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

Is there anyone out there who wasn’t crazy about some aspect of the Burberry Prorsum fall/winter 2010 collection? From the draped, ruched mini dresses, to the over-the-knee boots, to the completely delicious cropped shearling jackets—it was a sensation at the minimum, iconic at the max. And you can see why. The Shearling Funnel Neck Aviator Jacket looks like a cloud in the form of a clothing. If I could justify $3.5k for it, I so would.

Banana Republic Leather Sherpa Bomber Jacket

Update (11/15/2016): More than three years after our last Burberry Prorsum jacket steal find, Banana Republic decided to revive the (faux) shearling aviator trend and came up with an amazing Burberry-inspired alternative. It’s quite expensive at $1.400 (retail price), but also so, so gorgeous much so more affordable than the real deal’s $3.595, don’t you agree?

Scarves are a great way to accessorize, but not for $395. As much as I adore this Burberry Giant Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf, it is way beyond my price range. It seems to be a bit light for winter in my area, but perfect for transitional weather. No need to worry about the price because the scarved we found below are practically identical and very affordable as well.

Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf

Update (10/15/2012): Good news! BagInc has finally restocked the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarves which are now also available in other lovely colors such as red (my personal favorite!). Don’t forget to use our exclusive promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” to get 10% OFF your entire order!

To be honest, I actually like these scarves more than the Burberry one. I think that the darker pigmentation of the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf looks more expensive, but the best part is that it’s only $12. This would make a lovely accessory for really any outfit, and also a great gift for someone who loves the classic Burberry style.

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.

With this colder climate it’s safe to say that scarves are becoming an essential part of my wardrobe. Scarves can really add definition to any ensemble and are a staple piece on one of those “nothing to wear” days. This Burberry Icon Check Cashmere Scarf maintains a signature style with super soft cashmere, check print, and delicate fringe. It is the ultimate exemplar of how to liven a monochromatic outfit, or just a brilliant way to stay warm this season.

I think it has become clear why celebs absolutely adore the essential trench, and after all who can blame them? As a vital wardrobe must, this trench coat by Burberry is the ultimate classical statement with a contemporary twist. The silhouette is very flattering, framing the body and accentuating (and concealing) all the right places. Featuring leather piping, this adds a modern flair and truly brings a swanky feel to this highly coveted item. Though the price tag is quite steep, the steal below speaks for itself!
