The blanket scarf is one of those items that looks fabulous, sounds fabulous, and feels fabulous (hello, blanket!), but leaves us wondering how to wear the darn thing! They’re just so…big. In a perfect world, our stylist Allana Schmidt of F2SE.ca would go through our closets every morning and help us get dressed – but we’ll settle for the next best thing. We partnered up with Allana to put together a detailed video that walks you through four simple yet stylish ways to wear this trend without overwhelming your outfit (or yourself!). She chose gorgeous plaids ranging from a classic tartan to the more trendy colour-of-the-season, marsala. These timeless prints will go the distance season after season, making each a true wardrobe investment. And once you have a few wrapping styles in your arsenal, you’ll have some real wardrobe versatility too.
We love the cozy blanket scarf because it offers endless styling possibilities, takes us through the unpredictable late winter/early spring weather fluctuations, and just looks cool – very model-off-duty!
