20 Style Tips On How To Tie And Wear Giant Scarves

The best winter accessory, hands down, is a giant scarf. Sorry if you thought otherwise, but you were wrong. Nothing feels as cozy and as comfortable as wrapping yourself up in a scarf so big that it could easily double as a blanket. It’s the perfect layering piece to stay warm on a cold day, and it also brings life to any outfit. A cute blanket scarf can instantly make something boring, like jeans and a long-sleeved shirt, look cuter. It can help transition a summery dress to the winter. It can keep you warm and look stylish at the same time. There are so many good things to say about giant scarves!

In all honesty, it isn’t too difficult to wear them – loop them around your neck and go, right? Sure, with most scarves, but sometimes big ones can be tougher. There’s so much fabric that a general loop might feel too bulky or annoying. And hey, what seems easy to some people isn’t always easy to everyone. So, if you want to look good and feel comfy this winter, you’ve come to the right place. These outfit ideas will save your winter wardrobe and inspire you to buy all of the scarves out there. Here are some style tips on how to wear giant scarves, whether it’s a blanket scarf or something else. Enjoy them while you can!

1. Don’t assume that just because you have a patterned scarf, you have to wear a plain top. Mix prints and patterns. My personal favorite combo is a plaid blanket scarf with a striped top.

9. Scarves don’t have to be too casual – if you have a nice one in a solid color, it works well as a shawl over a dress when you’re going somewhere fancy.

10. Loop your scarf around your neck a few times, letting only one end hang down. This can be easier than trying to make things even.
