Can You Tell Which Plaid Scarf Costs $457 More Than The Other?
Truth be told, the classic tan Burberry scarf is something I have always wanted to own ever since I was a little girl. When you think of timeless fashion, this scarf is definitely on the list. It's signature color scheme and plaid pattern is recognized everywhere. Needless to say, when I would see women wearing this highly-coveted scarf, I could only hope to have it for myself. While the original Burberry Giant Check Cashmere Scarf retails at $475, I found a lookalike that does the original scarf justice. It's the Cute Beige Scarf from Lulu's, which retails at $18! But my question to you is, can you tell which one costs $457 more than the other? Don't miss the three ways to wear a fur vest and Kourtney Kardashian's suede skirt.
Can You Tell Which Trench Coat Costs $1,795 More Than The Other?
The Burberry trench coat is iconic. It's a fashion staple that is so timeless that, if anything, it only gets better with age. The cult coat is practically draped in glamour and prestige...which would explain the hefty price tag. So until I can treat myself to the real deal, I decided to search for a lookalike that will do it justice! I came across a trench coat from Calvin Klein that's literally $1,795.02 cheaper than the original. Can't beat that! But my question to you is, can you spot which one is more expensive?!

14 Fashion Obsessions From 2014—How Many Do You Own?
Another year (nearly) down and now's the time to look back at all the surprising, awesome, and, sometimes, cringe-worthy fashion trends that we fawned over in 2014. Who knew that we would be channeling Jerry Seinfeld for our #normcore clothing needs? Or searching for a shop that wasn't sold out in Mansur Gavriel bucket bags? Also, metallic temporary tattoos were kind of a thing, along with Beyoncé lyrics serving as the perfect form of expression for a graphic sweatshirt. Check out our slideshow to find out which fashion obsessions of this year you already own, and share in the comments below which ones you're hoping to see in 2015, too.
14 Great Gifts To Buy From Burberry If You Can’t Afford The $1400 Poncho
Blanket coats and ponchos are what's trending at the moment, and you can thank Christopher Bailey of Burberry for that. He sent countless of them down the runway for Fall 2014, including the highly coveted one we put on our Going, Going, Gone holiday gift list (you can even to monogram it!) which countless celebs from SJP to Olivia Palermo to Rosie Huntington-Whitely have worn. Sadly, the poncho will set you back nearly $1400, and if you don't have that kind of cash to spend on ONE Christmas gift this year, how about looking to Burberry's many other great giftable items, like polish from their beauty line or their classic scarves? These gifts are just as classic Burberry as a monogrammed poncho, but definitely not as expensive. Check out our slideshow above.
Can You Tell Which Poncho Costs $1,355 More Than The Other?
The Burberry colorblock poncho is probably the most-wanted fashion item this fall. That's why it made our Going, Going, Gone holiday gift list. Yes, celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker own the cape (monogrammed, obvs), but you know an item has truly reached must-have status when it is knocked off. Which is exactly the case here. The only major difference between these two ponchos is the price tag. One costs $1,395, and the other just went on sale for $39.90 (down from $69.99). Can you tell which one is more expensive? Answer: The one on the left is the Contrast Color Basic Poncho Coat ($39.90) from Choies, and the one on the right is THE Burberry Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho ($1,395). Did you guess correctly? Which do you like more? Let us know in the comments below! Test your fashion savvy some more with: leather totes, slip-on sneakers and leopard sweaters

Burberry’s New Skincare Line Promises To Make You Look Like A Flawless Model
Since they've already mastered trench coats and perfume, and made their luxury makeup debut, it only makes since that Burberry would get in on the skincare game. The British brand is good at everything else, so why not? According to InStyle, Burberry has plans to release a skincare line to compliment their successful makeup collection. For the skincare line, Burberry will collaborate with an unnamed "expert in the field" to ensure that users look and feel as flawless as the models in their makeup ads. But who will it be? Unfortunately, the brand is being really secretive and won't reveal any details relating to their new line. We don't even know when the launch date will be or what type of products it will include. Typical. Guess we'll just have to be on the look out all year, because this one is bound to sneak up on us. While you're waiting for Burberry's skincare line, check out these other beauty products: hair removal, Smashbox Full Exposure palette, and best summer nail polish colors [Photo: Splash News]
Burberry’s New Sunglasses Are Inspired By Their Trench Coats–Except Way Cheaper
If you've got the coins to splurge on a Burberry trench...God bless you. If you're a person of more humble means that still loves the British label's famed outerwear, you might want to check out their latest line of sunglasses, inspired by their iconic coats. The shades have the same sort of details you'll find on the trenches: metal hardware mimicking the hook-and-eye closures, leather temple tips inspired by the trench's belt buckle, and, of course, Burberry's famous check print accenting the inner arms and nosepads . So, if you can't shill out a thousand dollars for one of their jackets, these shades are like a good consolation prize--prices start at $190, which, for designer sunglasses, ain't too shabby. You can shop the Trench Collection at Burberry, but if you're also willing to spend on an actual coat to match, click through the slideshow to check out some of our favorite trench styles.

Shop Burberry’s (Almost) Check-Free Fall 2014 Collection Straight Off The Runway
Back in December, we told you that Burberry might lose the rights to its signature check print. Why? Because the brand hasn’t used it enough in the past three years. Whatever that means. Anyways, it doesn't look like the British fashion house is too concerned about giving up it's title as the king of all things red, black and tan check. Burberry's Fall 2014 collection just hit the runway earlier this morning and there was barley a check print in sight. Instead, Christopher Bailey showed coats, dresses and bags with hand-painted florals and geometric patterns. This collection will definitely go down in fashion history as one of Burberry's most different and refreshing collections--and you can be a part of it. The Fall 2014 designs are available to pre-order now. Get your hands on the first-of-its-kind Burberry collection before March 3rd.

Is Burberry About To Lose The Rights To Their Signature Plaid Pattern?
We all know plaid is killing it this season. So we were so surprised when we got word that Burberry, the company who put this print on the map, might be losing their rights to their signature red, black and tan check. Chinese authorities ruled that other companies can lawfully use the Burberry pattern on leather goods, since the British brand hasn't used it enough in the past three years. What constitutes enough? We have no idea. But Burberry is currently appealing this ruling. The whole debacle has been going down since August 2012 when a division of the Lubida factory in China filled a complaint to the Trademark Office over the right to use Burberry's iconic print. No surprise here: Burberry had previously sued Lubida for creating knock-off bags. Sounds like a fashion lawsuit that will go down in history. No official decision has been made yet, so Burberry still has the sole right to use their check pattern. But what will happen if the Chinese court doesn't rule in the British brands favor and other companies start using the red, black and tan print?! What do you guys think? Can Burberry survive this major shake-up? Let us know in the comments below! Click the slideshow to shop some Burberry plaid items, it could be your last chance to get the original print!

Classic Trenches For Fall: This Should Be Your No-Brainer Purchase Of The Season
When Apple taps the top executive of an iconic fashion brand, people take notice. Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry and the woman who dusted off the old British brand and made it seem like new again, is an expert when it comes to making consumers happy -- and the trench coat proves it. When you think of "trench coat," you think Burberry, and that is thanks to Ahrendts herself. She made Burberry's trench coat the must-have piece from the line, but she also made trench coats in general a must-have piece in and of itself. From Katie Holmes to Beyonce, Rihanna to Miranda Kerr, there are probably very few household names, including those of your family members, who don't have a trench in their closet. If one of those names happens to be yours, then we've rounded up the best fall trench coats just for you! The best part? This is one buy you can wear year after year, because this is one practical and stylish trend that will never go away. [Photo: Mango]

Check out these 6 scarves you need right now: The Snood: When the scarf and hood got together earlier this season, we celebrated with a warm neck, ears, and face.

Breaking: Burberry Suing Body Glove Over Check Patterned Phone Cases
The debate over fakes is hitting a cell phone store near you. According to a lawsuit they filed on Friday, Burberry (who also sued an NYC boutique earlier this summer) is alleging that phone case maker Body Glove copied their notorious - and copyrighted - check design. The case in question (above) is so popular, it's sold out at AT&T stores (we found one for the iPhone on Amazon - buy at your own risk). If found guilty, Body Glove will have to stop production of their self-proclaimed "Burberry-like" cases, and cover Burberry's legal bills. But the case begs the question - does anybody think a Burberry lookalike case at a mall kiosk is the real deal? We certainly hope not.

Must-Reads: Burberry sued an upscale boutique for selling - gasp - fakes. You read it here first. We are loving Simon Doonan's non-hoochie Halloween costumes for Target.

Breaking: Burberry Sues NYC Boutique Variazioni For $2 Million Over Fakes
We broke the news 2 weeks ago about Cartier suing sample sale site Hautelook for selling fakes, and now Burberry is suing Variazioni, the upscale New York City boutique for $2 million on the charge of selling fake versions of its clothing in its stores. According to official court documents SHEfinds obtained, the merchandise, including quilted jackets, raincoats, shirts, zip-up jackets and sports pants as well as labels, tags, and packaging were found to be "not authentic." However, this is not Variazioni's first time selling faux Burberry. In June 2009, Burberry purchased jackets and shirts from the store, and Varizioni admitted to selling 86 knock-offs and signed an agreement to only sell authentic Burberry in its stores. Now have a $2 million case (and we'd imagine some pretty pissed customers) on their hands. Opt for the splurge and shop real Burberry from Saks or Net-a-Porter.

Burberry Makes Fashion History, But We’re More Interested In The Front Row: 3 A-Lister Styles To Get Now
While yesterday's Burberry show made fashion history--livestreaming the show online (and in some major cities, in 3-D!) we were more interested in the sparkly shiny front row and it stars pulled off hard-to-wear trends. Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart, Claire Danes, and Olivia Palermo showed that Burberry is more than just overpriced trenches--it's all about sparkles, nude colors, and platform sandals for spring. We're so there. Here are some affordable pieces that will help you look like you deserve a ticket to fashion week next season: Kate Hudson and Olivia Palermo both weren't afraid to shine in these sparkly stand-out pieces. They stuck with clean lines which made the sequin less overwhelming and look more polished than, well, disco. This Victoria's Secret Sequin Blazer ($159) has a the boyfriend shape that we love, and can be belted like Olivia Palermo's jacket. The navy blue sequins make the sweater look rich, not cheap, which is important when dressing with sequins. Kristen Stewart and Claire Danes wore delicate, feminine pieces in nude colors that would look good for any formal occasion. Claire's nude platform sandals will go with practically anything--and (we can't say it enough) make your legs look longer and slimmer. Stewart's silk knotted skirt might not work for all figures, but this gray James Perse rouched skirt ($125) is a simpler, more wearable alternative. And these Via Spiga Milicent sandals ($215) will do the trick. See what else Hollywood starlets are wearing in our celebrity style guide, or check out our round up of the best trench coats.
