20 Style Tips On How To Wear Blanket Scarves

There are scarves, and then there are blanket scarves. Blanket scarves are a giant version of a scarf that are so big they could even be used as, you guessed it, a blanket. They’re warm, cozy, comfortable, and wonderful, and they just might be my favorite trend of the fall and winter season this year. I own a bunch of them, and I love using them as scarves, makeshift ponchos or capes, shawls, and yes, even a blanket.

But despite how versatile they are, blanket scarves can be hard to figure out. There’s so much fabric that it’s easy to look at it and go, “how the eff do I wrap this around my neck?” If you want to embrace the coziest trend of the season, we’ve got you covered! Here are 20 style tips on how to wear blanket scarves with awesome outfit ideas.

 

1. Here’s a super basic way to tie your blanket scarf around your neck:

7. Wear your blanket scarf as a coat when it’s not that cold by loosely draping it over your shoulders, then belting it so it stays in place. With tall boots, you’ll stay warm and cozy.
