Recently I invested in a blanket scarf, which has been on my wishlist forever. I've always loved the concept of how something can be a blanket and a scarf, because I'm always cold when outside. When researching, I found the possibilities are endless with the ways you can wear them, so I thought I would share 5 ways to style a blanket scarf.
The first way to wear a blanket scarf is my personal favorite: as a shawl. It accents any outfit and keeps you warm, can it get any better? Before I show you the rest of my looks, here is where everything I am wearing is from:
Sweater: H & M
Shoes: H & M
Scarf: Forever 21
This is how I tend to wear all my scarfs, only because it has the loop around my neck to keep me warm, and lets the scarf hang down as an accent. The length of this scarf is perfect for this look, as it doesn't hang to low on the body to be a nuisance.
To wear this style all you need is to take the traditional style and tuck both ends into the loop of the scarf. It will create this braided effect that looks very professional and keeps your neck really warm.
To create this look, first you need to fold your blanket scarf into a triangle. Then twist is a few times and wrap it around your neck. It creates that classic cowboy vibe and works as a great face mask when it is windy. My scarf wasn't the perfect size for this look, so it ended up strangling me a bit, but most blanket scarves tend to be wider.
Creating this look is simple! Tie the two ends of the scarf together to create a loop, and wrap it around your neck at least twice. It creates a super easy, casual look and is a great way to handle a big scarf. Use this style if you want to have a bit more of your top showing, as it only covers the upper part of the body.
I just had my first snowfall! Earlier today, I was walking in from shopping (I might've picked up a pair of boots at the DSW sale) and I noticed a few snowflakes falling. Sooner or later it started really snowing, and now we have a light layer covering the ground. Also, I am extremely happy it is a 3 day weekend, because now I have more time to have fun in the snow ( and maybe take photos for a new blogpost!) Do you have Monday off? Let me know in the comments. I have a few bonus posts that might show up later this week, so if I can reach 3 comments by Wednesday, I have another outfit possibility to wear with a blanket scarf. Hope you have a great week!
