6 Ways to Style Blanket Scarves

I feel like blanket scarves have become a fall and winter norm. Not only are they cozy and fun to layer with, the beautiful plaids and prints are perfect for making a boring neutral outfit look completely different.

One of my favorite ways to wear a blanket scarf is as a poncho/wrap (shown above). For those days when the temps are fluctuating or when you're traveling and just looking for an easy additional layer, this accessory always does the trick. If your blanket scarf is too long for your height to wear this way, try folding it in half or into a large triangle (corner to corner) before draping it over your shoulders.

For a thick blanket scarf, I love the handkerchief style. Fold your scarf into a triangle (fold corner to corner). Drape the large triangle part in front and wrap the two ends around your neck. You can adjust the length, thickness and width as desired by tugging a bit on those areas.

*Quick style change - fold the larger part of the triangle from the previous style underneath and wrap the two ends around to create an infinity scarf look! Super easy and you can adjust it to be the perfect length for your height! No more tugging at infinity scarves that were too tight around the neck.

Of course there is always the traditional way to wear scarves (my favorite way). For chunky scarves, roll your scarf to make it thinner (role it up like a log, longways) before draping over your sweaters or under jackets to make things less bulky.

If your scarf is thinner than others or has less fabric to work with, I always suggest the classic wrap-around style to create this look. Start by draping the scarf around your neck and then loop one side around again and adjust for desired length. This style is perfect for underneath jackets!

The knot is a super cute and easy style to wear under vests, cardigans or over an crew-neck sweater! Simply bend the scarf in half and grab at the middle (where it would be the loop) then pull the loose side through the hole to create a loose, loop knot!

Can you tell that I'm a scarf lover (and MAJOR plaid lover)? They're are just so comfortable and make things 10x easier for the office, traveling and daily wear.

Professional tip: Keep an oversized blanket scarf at your desk at work to drape over your shoulders when it gets chilly!
