Ok ladies, we may be in the new year, but it’s still chilly out there so let’s discuss scarves. There are plenty of options on the shelves, but the top contender has to be the blanket scarf. I can think of nothing more comforting that wrapping myself up in one of these beauties. Not to be confused with a bed throw (they are roughly the same size), these mighty scarves have many advantages over the standard Slimline one.
HOW TO WEAR A BLANKET SCARF
Firstly though, how do you wear a blanket scarf? This is one of the most popular questions on google apparently so you’re not alone! There are many ways to wear a blanket scarf and it really depends on your outfit. Be it slim and chic or slouchy and casual, the blanket scarf is going to be your best friend in no time. One thing people confuse about that hijab is different from the scarf. Hijab used by Muslim women usually to cover their head.
Blanket Scarf Outfit
A pair of crap and frayed boyfriend jeans with white Superga Plimsolls is perfect for the bottom half. Pair this with a crisp oversized white shirt and a cropped navy jumper, then just add the scarf. Align at the back with equal room on each side. Then, tuck the left side into the right shoulder and drape the right side over the left. Casual yet cool and undeniably elegant!
Tie a Blanket Scarf
Take one corner and shake so the scarf hangs in a diagonal. Hold this corner to the left side of your waist while draping over your neck and holding the other end with your right hand. Quickly and loosely wrap once around your neck. Tuck the right side in roughly under the loop and leave the left side hanging. This style cocoons your face with color whilst letting the rest of your outfit shine.
Another great way to wear the blanket scarf is to leave it open. There’s no wrapping or knotting involved, just a simple drape over the shoulders. Very fashion editor chic! Personally, I think this looks best when the rest of the outfit is casual too.
