Wondering how to wear a blanket scarf? We’ve got you covered!
First things first. What is a blanket scarf? Like its name suggests, it is a huge shawl or scarf that is roughly as big as a blanket. Thanks to its size, it offers excellent protection against the elements and can also be folded in many cool and original ways, ranging from the glamorous to the effortlessly chic and casually cozy. Blanket scarves come in square and rectangular shapes and can be found in virtually every color combination under the sun, although tartan is definitely the most sought after pattern.
Wear your blanket scarf like a shawl over your shoulders for a glamorous, Hollywood diva look!
It might be hard to believe, but this gorgeous item goes with all kinds of clothes combinations! You can wear a mini dress and casually drape a blanket scarf over your shoulders for a glamorous, movie star look, or simply throw on tour favorite pair of jeans and a sweater and wrap it around your neck for a cute, every day outfit. The only rule is to try to avoid color clashing. If you’d like to wear a blanket scarf with a bold tartan print, for example, try to keep the rest of your outfit in neutral colors like black and grey, or opt for simple blue jeans and a plain white jumper.
