I’m so excited about this post because I get to share my new favorite item of clothing! Nordstrom asked if I would help spread the word about their assortment of Burberry for fall and I immediately knew it was time to take the plunge on a classic Burberry trench coat. Did you know they were first designed in 1856 and worn by soldiers during World War I? If a piece has been around for 150+ years, I think that makes it a pretty sound investment!
Of course, there were several styles of Burberry trench coats to choose from. I went back and forth a lot but ultimately decided on the Burberry Brit Balmoral Packable Trench, a classic belted style with in water-resistant nylon that won’t wrinkle in transit.
There are so many ways to wear it (I literally spent an hour playing dress-up when it arrived!). This is obviously a pretty casual look but I know it will be just as cute over a dress with heels for dinner dates this fall. And anything that cinches at the waist makes me feel instantly more ladylike!
It wouldn’t be Burberry without a splash of their signature plaid underneath the collar. Another thing I like about the Balmoral style in particular is that it has a detachable hood, which makes it infinitely more practical for unpredictable New England weather.
If you’re coveting a trench coat for fall but aren’t quite ready to invest in Burberry, Nordstrom has a ton of options at every price point. A couple favorites? London Fog ($178) and Lauren Ralph Lauren ($225).
