The statement mac is always a huge winter trend. This transitional - raining one minute, dry the next - weather makes it one of the most important wardrobe staples of the season. I wanted to show that this look can be achieved regardless of whether you have the cash, and so I have split this trend into two separate posts - High end and High street. My first post is High end, and what better brand to feature in a post about macs than the king of macs - Burberry. This particular Mac is from the Autumn Winter 2013 collection and was originally nearly £2000! (Of course I didn't pay anywhere near that - the joy of sample sales!). It is made from a really cool semi transparent plastic, very similar to the Lip Service shirt I styled in my last post. I kept the styling fairly minimal, opting for a warm roll neck under a jumper, teamed with my high-waisted trousers. I know cut-out shoes aren't very practical for the weather right now, but I'm so in love with these Matthew Miller shoes they were a must, and they look awesome with a pair of socks (making them slightly more practical). Look out for my next post styling up a highstreet version of this look!
