3 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf

Blanket Scarf 3 looks

This fall, we’re loving the Blanket Scarf, an oversized take on the traditional scarf. We asked our stylists to give us some tips on how to wear this season’s hottest (or warmest!) accessory, with our Highland Blanket Scarf.

Look 1: A Chunky Cascading Scarf

Simple and straightforward, this styling incorporates the traditional wrapped scarf look, but adds extra length and oomph with the pointed end.

  1. Fold the scarf into a triangle.
  2. Hold the scarf in front of you, with the triangle point facing down. Take the two ends of the scarf, and loop around your neck. Depending on the length of your blanket scarf, you may need to wrap the ends once or twice.
  3. Tie ends together, and tuck under the point of the triangle.
  4. Fluff and adjust as necessary.

Look 2: Poncho Wrap

For an elegant look to take you from yoga to dinner, we love this elegant twist on the classic poncho.

  1. Fold scarf into a triangle.
  2. Pull the triangle behind your back, with the point slightly offset behind one shoulder.
  3. Pull scarf ends together over the opposite shoulder, attaching with either a knot or a brooch.
  4. Adjust scarf to get the fit you want. You can try bringing the top slightly over your shoulders, for more coverage, or down for an off-the-shoulder look. You can also get an interesting look by folding the scarf with offset edges.

Look 3: Draped Shawl

  1. Fold scarf into a triangle.
  2. Drape scarf over shoulders, with the point of the triangle falling behind you.
  3. Done!

I would also like to see more ways to wear the blanket scarf. I just bought the grey color block scarf, and I realized my scarf skills are pretty limited. 🙂
