With winter nearly upon us, now is the best time to upgrade your wardrobe with a warm blanket scarf. Comfy and undeniably chic, we're smitten with blanket scarves of all shapes and sizes.
Courtney Quinn, NY-based blogger of Color me Courtney, simply knows how to stay chic in the cold winter temps. Layer an oversized plaid blanket scarf over a marled sweater to keep wintry temps at bay.
For extra style points, coordinate rich color tones like oxblood with a matching hat or flirty skater skirt. Complete this oh-so-chic look with thigh high socks tucked neatly into knee high boots.
Or, amp up the volume on your look like Joelle from Lapetitenoob in Canada, who donned her blanket scarf like a gorgeous capelet. Get snuggly with an oversized tartan blanket scarf and pair with a floppy fedora for a look that's totally in-the-now. Play with proportion by pairing a micro mini skirt with over the knee wedge boots. Add oversized sunglasses and a zippered handbag to complete this glamorous ensemble.
Get a quick lesson in blanket scarf layering from Patricia, who runs her own style blog called Peexo from the UK. Looking both elegant and classy, Patricia started off her look by layering a beige blanket scarf over a sheer blouse.
Use a thin belt with a gold buckle to cinch things together at the waist, creating a beautiful hourglass silhouette. Team with ankle booties and a oversized handbag to complete your look. We love Patricia's feminine details, like the loose princess sleeves from her blouse and delicate hoop earrings for an extra special touch.
For a fall-to-winter look, take a cue from Emily Gemma, also known for her fashion blog called The Sweetest Thing. Combining some of the most of-the-moment trends, Emma rocked her multicolored blanket scarf over a brown suede jacket and distressed denim.
Edgy yet effortless, Gemma cuffed the ankles of her jeans and paired them with a pair of rocker-chic pumps. The studded details on her pointed heels keep this look cool and fresh, while her carry-all satchel gives this outfit a classic feel. Perfect as a transitional outfit, this is one romantic look to try for yourself.
Look charming and opt for mixing textures just like San Francisco-based blogger, Connnie Tang. For a unexpected twist, pair a plaid blanket scarf with a classic striped raglan tee layered under a furry vest. Pucker up with a swipe of red lip and match with a cute crossbody bag in the same bold red hue. Keep things casual with a pair of indigo denim and chunky booties.
To create the perfect cozy yet chic outfit, layer on one of this season’s most coveted items— a blanket scarf.
