5 Ways I Styled My Blanket Scarf

Let me ask you, what is your take on blanket scarves? I love blanket scarves so much and now that it is fall,  I can finally jump in on the awesome trend. I love them because 1.) they are cute, trend, and chic, and 2.) they keep me warm. It seems that I am always cold so having something a little extra is sure welcome to keep me warm.

The color of this scarf is super unique and really caught my eye so I knew it had to be mine. I love the orange, gray, and white plaid look that it creates. The first day I wore it people wouldn’t stop complementing me for it and asking where I got it. I love that I have styled this blanket scarf in 5 different ways and I hope you love how I styled it. If I were you I would keep reading to find out where I got this beautiful scarf.

Style 1: 5waysistyledmyblacketscarf

Since I was younger I remember always styling my scarves like this. I love the cornered look. What I do is completely open up the scarf, then I make sure to line up the corners in the middle so that the scarf will make a triangle shape, then I just style it and make it tight or loose depending on how I want to wear it. I do put a little knot in the back. 5waysistyledmyblanketscarf6

Style 2 5waysistyledmyblacketscarf2

This style is definitely the winter time look, but it still looks good for fall as well. For this style I like to grab the scarf in the middle and make sure both ends are even. Then I put it around my neck (both sides still together) and put the end of the scarf through the loop that I have created with my neck. I will either pull it tight or leave it loose. When the snow falls you will want to have it tighter to stay warmer. 5waysistyledmyblacketscarf0

Style 3 5waysistyledmyblanketscarf

Here’s the “just let it hang” look. I enjoy wearing this style with a more casual look like a cozy sweater and jeans. 5waysistyledmyblanketscarf7

Style 4 5waysistyledmyblanketscarf0

A nice little tie to keep the scarf from becoming to long and adding some shape to your look. I know it is simple, but with a style like this, I feel you could wear a necklace underneath and it would look adorable. To have a necklace peaking through would be very chic. With this look as well you can wear it higher up on the neck, at the height I have the scarf, or even a little lower. Just play with it to see what you like most with what you are wearing. 5waysistyledmyblanketscarf3

Style 5

5waysistyledmyblanketscarf9 Just wrap it around you and keep yourself warm. That is what a blanket scarf is for. Not going to lie- I have covered myself up completely with one once. I am always cold and, honestly, being cold to me is one of the worst feelings in the world.

I know I have chatted a lot about the scarf, but I also want to chat about the rest of my outfit. I am loving this gray bodycon dress from Forever 21 that is under $13. It is cheap but chic and also comes in three different colors! I love how dark the gray is and how form fitting it is. I am to short for those babydoll dresses. They just eat me up, so I usually always go with something that will let me show off my curves.

From ILYMIX and I am loving it. The color is perfect and the packaging it came in was so adorable. Such a wonderful company and shipping was so fast. This is one product I couldn’t wait for. They also offer sunglasses, bags, and so much more.

As always, thank you for reading. nfobuttonsGOLD

      Thanks, Jackie. Sometimes you just have to play around and style them different. I think that is also what makes wearing them so fun.

    Love how you styled this scarf! I love scarves and seem to be reaching for them more than usual. I normally wear style 1 or 2 but I’ve left it loose before and belted it too! I think a scarf/dress combo may be what I wear for thanksgiving!

      I have been too! I actually wore a sweater dress for Thanksgiving but I think adding a scarf would have made it 20x better.
