Ever since the creative chief for Burberry Christoper Bailey put Cara Delevingne in his iconic blanket coat this trend has crept into every fashion house in the world. It appears that every line is making their own version for every woman to add their wardrobe. This trend combines the comfort of an actual blanket with a much more chic design.
When shopping for your blanket scarf here are a few things to keep in mind:
Fabrics: If you plan on wearing your blanket scarf on a regular basis be sure to test the material around your neck before purchase. Fibers like wool can itch and no amount of style is worth the agony.
Pattern: If your winter coat is a basic color, add some excitement in the form of colors and patterns. Whatever you choose, add your scarf to a monochromatic outfit so that it stands out. Plaid has been the popular choice this season.
Wear: Drape it, Belt It, Roll it. The amount of styles are unless. If you are worried that the size of the scarf will overpower your frame. Try choosing one that is more tailored to your body. Be sure to that the scarf still drapes and hangs.
Bonus: This is a great transition piece for travelling. We have all heard horror stories about on flight blankets, but having a blanket scarf can keep you cozy during your flight when the temperature drops.
