Burberry jackets have become something of a recurring trend and this year they’re well and truly back. For many, the Burberry trench coat has become something of a wardrobe staple, and they’re perfect for those transitional months between the warmer and cooler seasons.
Part of the appeal of Burberry jackets is their immense versatility. The iconic Burberry trench coat, in particular, is available as part of both the men’s and women’s collections, and comes in a variety of classic shades. Belted up over a suit, they offer a smart and stylish waterproof layer. However, these jackets can look just as good when worn unbuttoned with rolled up sleeves for a more casual effect.
Unlike most of items you’ll see on the catwalk, Burberry jackets have a particularly interesting heritage. The fashion label first launched in 1856, gaining popularity with its impressive outdoor clothing range. However, it wasn’t until 1914 that the War Office commissioned the designer to provide coats which were suitable to be worn by those on the front line, resulting in what became known as the ‘trench coat’.
Nowadays, Burberry jackets are extremely popular with the fashion-conscious all over the world, and they produce a good range of updated styles to choose from. If you want to put together a look which is quintessentially British and undoubtedly sophisticated, then the Burberry jacket is a must-have item. Far from limiting themselves to the basic trench coat, the collection features a diverse selection of jackets, ranging from cropped leather biker styles to woolen pea coats.
It’s true that the range of jackets available from Burberry could probably last you right through the year, but if you’re looking to invest in just one design, then you might do best to go for the classic trench coat style. Most of their designs are lined with the iconic Burberry check, making them instantly recognisable.
Aside from coats and jackets, Burberry also offer a huge range of other clothing items and accessories. Another popular item is the Burberry cashmere scarf, which usually features the same signature check found in the jacket lining. Most Burberry collections will also include a number of other essentials, such as t-shirts, jeans, bags and shoes.
