If you hadn’t noticed already, it’s time to start making the transition towards the autumn wardrobe you’ve been putting all your time into developing. And that means getting boxy with this season’s newest jacket: the cropped coat. Burberry Prorsum’s cropped wool jacket in zesty tangerine is, therefore, right on the fashion money.
With its stand-up collar, cropped sleeves and button front closure, this is a friend that will see you through from autumn to winter in the most fabulous style.
For those colder days, it’ll work just as perfectly as it does for the milder ones – just tempt yourselves into practising your layering skills. Look to this season’s cigarette pants and brogues to channel that androgynous feel, and you’ll be good to go.
So far, it’s all dandy. Except when you’re wandering eyes hit the price tag: at £1,095, this is definitely a little out of my price range (okay, a lot out of my price range). And even though it’s Burberry Prorsum and will (possibly) last you a lifetime, I’d suggest hunting the high street for a replica.
