Olivia Palermo was spotted in NYC recently wearing that exact Burberry blanket coat, and you know once Olivia wears something,the next step is the fashion bloggers and street style stars — and we’re bound to start copying these exact looks.

Chloe hopped on the blanket coat bandwagon early (in fact, we kind of want to say the Chloe pre-fall 2014 show started the whole trend), with a few really cool, blanket/cape/poncho-type pieces. Here’s Elena Perminova rocking her Chloe blanket coat like a street style boss:Chloe blanket coat
