Back by popular demand (my sister), I’ve decided to do an updated post on how to wear my favorite winter accessory — the blanket scarf!
Many of my friends know that I’m a bit addicted to this large accessory from Aritzia. In these colder months, it saves me walking around this chilly city! If you don’t own one yet, I highly suggest buying one for yourself, your mom, your sister and your girlfriend too!
There are many ways to wear it — so prepare to be amazed!
Also, how fun is this gif?
Let’s begin — I like to first fold it diagonally so it’s a bit easier to work with.
The Shawl – When it’s not too cold, this is a perfect way to drape the scarf to add some texture and color to your look. A great sub when you don’t feel like wearing a coat. Especially on a day like today where it was randomly 50 degrees in NYC!
2. Swaddle Me – I’m a new Aunt to my baby nephew Ali — let’s just say babies aren’t the only ones who can get their swaddle on. (Lol) Sure you might not be able to move your arms but you’re going to be super comfy and warm all day long!
3. The Classic – Fashion meets function. Your safest bet to stay warm all winter long. Your scarf tied with an easy loop around your neck won’t go anywhere. Sometimes I completely cover my mouth and throw on my parka with a hood. Your friends might say, “Are you climbing Mt. Everest” (true story) but who cares — anything for warmth!
4. Flip It and Reverse It – Take a cue from Missy (she’s back!) and wear the reverse side of your blanket scarf the next time you drape it like a shawl. I’ve been loving winter whites and creams this season to brighten my everyday look in a sea of black parkas.
Add my favorite camel coat and I’m ready for a very fashionable February!
