There is nothing I love more on a cold and rainy day like today than my Burberry scarf and trench. It is a timeless combination that men and women should have in their wardrobe. The trench is one of the most functional pieces I own and no matter what you combine it with, never fails to complete any look.
However, this post is on the classic Burberry plaid. It has come under fire recently as Burberry has been adopted by the masses and has done some of the ridiculous prints and pieces. The only items that should be the full plaid are the scarf and umbrella. The clothing and handbags I have from Burberry only have a delicate lining or pipping of the plaid. It is never elegant or WASPy to have obnoxious displays of branding; no matter the quality of the item.
Personally, I adore my giant cashmere plaid scarf, like the one shown above. Scarves are my favorite accessory (after jewelry of course) and never fear, I will dedicate at least an entire post to them. So ladies, and gentleman alike, I urge you make your Burberry scarf and trench the staples of your wardrobe this fall.
