Style Advisor: How To Wear Burberry

Fashion is cyclical, a fact proven by the renaissance of Burberry’s house check. Not so long ago, at the dawn of the early noughties, wearing head-to-toe Burberry would have been fashion suicide. But now, with everyone from the Hadids and Adwoa Aboah to Meghan Markle and Rosie Huntington-Whitely wearing it, it is once again the pinnacle of refined cool. And we’re glad, because as style statements go, an all-over check trench coat is akin to the latest It-bag or a pair of really, really mind-blowing shoes. Whilst we’ll grieve the exit of the heritage British brand’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, we’ll forever rejoice in his creative vision and the rebirth of a brand that has shaped British fashion for decades. Here’s how to style the new season’s Burberry check.


With all the sophistication of slim-fit pants, but an extra dose of cool, Burberry’s Halpern trousers in a modernised tartan check are the perfect contrast to Jimmy Choo’s ultra-white sock boots, one of the new season’s must-have accessories.


The Burberry trench coat is a British institution, and a mainstay of stylish wardrobes across rain-swept Blighty. Reworked for SS18 in a red, glossy, laminated check, wear with jeans and a statement clutch in the spirit of eccentric but elegant London style.


Burberry’s simple cotton tunic dress is anything but basic in the brands iconic house check. Keep things fresh by styling with a luxe bomber (like Fendi’s embellished Giacca jacket) and Valentino-red accessories to make the plaid pop. Finish with chunky boots.
