  • Why the Burberry mac is still a star style staple

    A timeless fashion classic, the Burberry trench has been warming the backs of Hollywood’s most stylish stars for decades, from Audrey Hepburn to Kate Moss, Anne Hathaway, Rachel Bilson and Kate Hudson.

    The style continues to be a hit with the hottest stylistas, and this season’s Burberry Prorsum dip-dyed version is no exception.

    In a marriage of British style icons, Alexa Chung was first spotted in hers back in February, and seems to have rarely been out of it ever since.

    Stepping out after the NME awards, the TV starlet belted hers up, and teamed it with another fashion classic, a little black quilted bag.

    From London to New York, where the style cropped up on another best-dressed list staple, Kate Bosworth. Putting her own chic take on the mac, the Superman Returns actress teamed hers with a long tangerine skirt, black baggy tee and sculptural shoes. With her hair loosely tied back and her mac casually open, she was the picture of NY cool.

    So now it’s time for today’s fashion challenge! Two sides of the pond, on two of our favourite fashionistas, but the question is, who wore it best? Let us know your verdict in the comments box below.
