How to Wear Blanket Scarves

How to Wear Blanket Scarves

This autumn trend is hard to execute for some, probably because blanket scarves are so oversized and bulky. I thought it would be fun to explore some different styling options and to walk you through how to wrap, tie, and secure them.

1 | The Simple Wrap Around

Wear it like you would any other scarf by folding it half to make it a triangle, then wrapping it around your neck.

2 | The Backwards Kerchief 

Again, fold the scarf in half to make it into a triangle, then wrap it around your shoulders with the 2 end pieces in front of you. Tie those pieces into a knot and then pull the knot loose to make it seem fuller.

3 | The Blanket Vest

Fold the scarf in half to make a triangle and wrap it around your body so that the two small ends are in front of you. Grab a belt to gather the scarf at your waist...and VOILA!

4 | The Caplet

Yet again, you need to fold the scarf in half to make it into a triangle. Then you must knot the two small end pieces together. Put your arm through the hole of the scarf and when you wrap the scarf around your back, put your other arm through the same hole. This makes it into a sort-of vest!

5 | The Infinity Cowl

Keep the scarf folded in half, and twist it until its a rope. Then knot the ends and wrap it around your neck twice.
