5 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf

For some reason, the weather tends to get a bit colder during January and February.  So, in order to bundle up, I love to wear my scarves.  My favorite type of scarf is a blanket scarf.  For the longest time ever, I didn’t know how to style a blanket scarf and that was really frustrating for me.  But finally, I found out a few ways to style it and I wanted to share it with you all! 

Style #1:  The Traditional way

The reason why I call this style the Traditional way because it’s simply just that- a traditional way to wear a scarf.  In this style option, you would fold your blanket scarf into a triangle.  Then you angle it like a right triangle with a straight side facing towards you and the pointed side facing towards your shoes.  Once you got that lined up, you wrap the left side of the scarf to your right shoulder and vice versa.  Viola!  You got a nice and simple way of wearing the blanket scarf.

Style #2:  Roll and Tie

For this style, you would fold your blanket scarf into half twice (like a rectangle). Then, you would take it and wrap it around your neck and tie it in the back to keep it in place.  Another simple & easy way to wear a blanket scarf.

Style #3:  Shawl

This style is so simple, and I love it for the simplicity of it.  You fold you blanket scarf in half, the rectangular way.  Then you put it on yourself like a shawl by draping it over your shoulders.  I like to wear this style with a nicer blanket scarf, when I go to parties.

Step 1: Fold in half. Step 2: Wrap around self.
Step 3: Style & Enjoy!

Style #4:  Blanket

One of the best ways to wear a blanket scarf- like a blanket!  Just take your scarf and wrap it around.  I like to wear it like this when I’m traveling since it acts like both a scarf and a blanket at the same time.  This way, it keeps my luggage much lighter as well.

Step 1: Open scarf and wrap around self

Step 2: Style & Enjoy!

Tip #5:  Cape

This is one of the coolest and unique ways to wear a blanket scarf.  You wrap your blanket scarf around you, as if you were to wear it like a blanket (see above) and then tie the top ends of it together.  Now, you’re a superhero!  It’s certainly a fun take on styling a blanket scarf.

Those are my favorite ways to wear a blanket scarf.  Which one was your favorite or do you wear it a different way?  Let me know in the comments below!

Much love,
