Between the stunning shearling and wool blanket coats that accented the Chloé pre-fall 2014 collection and the instantly recognizable initialed Burberry ponchos that droves of "It" girls were spotted in during Fashion Month, it was inevitable: this is the coat shape of the season. And we're pretty pumped about that. Not only are these blanket coats super-cozy, they are as chic as can be — plus, the shape feels fresh, and can turn even the most basic look a statement-making one. While the dramatic, voluminous outerwear works well with slim-fitting pants and tops, don't be afraid to throw one on with a dress or body-hugging skirt. We're all for showing a little leg and adding an over-the-knee boot, just as model (and top street style star) Elena Perminova does above.
If you're as eager to get one of these stunners in your closet as we are, read on for our picks for the best blanket coats on the market right now.
