3 Ways You Can Wear Your Blanket Scarf 2018

There are a few items of fall that I return to each year, one of them is the blanket scarf. The blanket scarf is characterized by its oversized style, hence the name of “blanket”. It’s typically done in a wool material, or synthetic.  The best part is that it’s terribly cozy, warm and fairly easy to style. Here are 3 ways you can wear your blanket scarf 2018:

Blanket Scarf 2018

1. As a cape

If you ask me, the coziest way to wear a blanket scarf is to use it as a cape. Just fold it out and let it hang over your shoulders. That way you’ll create the effect of a cape. Doing it this way can be favorable on cold days when you want a warm layer. Or if you feel like your outfit is too strict and you want to add some movement, which the cape-effect will help you with. This way of wearing the scarf is terribly chic to do with a (faux) leather/moto jacket under. Perhaps even more chic to match it with a pair of jeans and a pair of boots!

2. Secured with a belt

Another way to work your blanket scarf 2018 is to secure it with a belt. That way the scarf will be kept in its place, yet look more stylish with the adding of a belt. If you want to go statement the belt can be a bit oversized in its look, whilst a smaller belt will give the blanket scarf a more voluminous appearance. Don’t forget to either match with a same colored belt or go more statement and choose something contrasting. If your scarf is in a fierce print, pick a color from the print and choose the belt in that color!

3. As a scarf

Finally, you can also wear your blanket scarf just as …. a scarf! I know it might feel a bit chunky, as it’s more fabric than a regular scarf, but it’s just about letting it feel a bit awkward. It can be quite a chic statement to let the scarf be massive as it adds a nice flow to your outfit. Especially chic to do if you’re working a neat sweater and pants and you want your outfit to look more dimensional. I think you should dare to go for a scarf in a contrasting color, or dress more monochromatic. It creates quite an interesting effect to have your scarf in a similar color to the rest of your outfit. It looks more cohesive, yet bold with all the fabric!

    1. It’s a fun way of getting the most out of them and keeping them interesting! Xx

  1. I am loving these suggestions! Blanket scarves are one of my favorite cold weather accessories (and I’m sure I’ll be wearing a lot more of them now that I moved) so this is so helpful!

  2. I love the cozy look and feel of a blanket scarf, but I rarely wear them because I end up feeling so overwhelmed by them. I do like the cape idea though and I think I’ll try that! Thanks!

    1. They can feel a bit overwhelming indeed, but using them as a cape can definitely make them look less heavy! Xx

  3. Great ideas to style the scarf!
    Lately, I’ve also been seeing versions of scarfs as a skirt, secured with a pin or brooch. I think Pernille Teisbaek was the first to style it but I’M not sure 🙂 ♥
