The Blanket Scarf

Today is the day we finally talk about the big one.  You know, that thing that has taken over everybody's brains this season... the blanket scarf!  Seriously, I don't think I have ever heard or seen so much hype of a single accessory in... ever!  I have to say, the blanket scarf definitely lives up to the hype, too.  When it is sub zero temperatures like it basically is right now (aka 40 degrees) this baby gives you the added kick of warmth that a regular old scarf just can't do.  I got mine from Asos and have been wearing basically nonstop.  

HOWEVER, when I first tore open the package and tossed this baby on, I looked and felt like a very confused eskimo.  It was warm and cozy but how the heck was I supposed to put it on?  It was literally like wearing a blanket off of my bed around.  Not chic!

Thank goodness for Google, YouTube, Pinterest, yada, yada.  

Here is the trick:  Fold the scarf in half in a giant triangle.  Once you do that, the possibilities are endless.  I basically wear it around my shoulders like that (SO snuggly!) or tie the ends like a traditional scarf.  You can also turn it around so the large part of the triangle is in the front and tie from there.

Get a blanket scarf.  They're not just trendy, they are SO. COZY.  I wear mine around the house all day.  

I like a plain, preferably swingy, long sleeved tee to wear with mine.

Happy blanket scarfing lovelies!

  2. Haha love this! I had to google how to wear mine as well, you should have seen me in the car on the way to a friend's b-day googling on my phone trying to figure out how to wear the dang thing :-P

    They are so soft and cozy, I agree it's not a trend to me it's warmth and comfort!

  10. That look so warm! I need a blanket scarf with these frigid temps we have been having!

  11. That's my favorite scarf!! Perfect for this freezing weather we've been having

  12. My favorite scarf!! But it took me awhile to figure out how to style it... it's just so big!! I fold mine in a triangle, and have the triangle in the front and then wrap the ends around my neck and back forward. After I fiddle with it a bit, I can get it to lay really nicely!!
