How To Wear A Blanket Scarf


Hi babes! It’s no secret around here that blanket scarves are one of my favorite accessories to wear in the Fall and Winter months. And as much as Adam dislikes them, I can’t stop wearing them. They’re so warm and cozy, and they can change the look of any outfit. Plus, blanket scarves are totally an Instagram staple. #sorrynotsorry

ILYMIX sent me this scarf, and I just love all the gorgeous colors in it. ILYMIX is one of my favorite places to shop for scarves because they have such a huge selection! (I received this scarf complimentary from ILYMIX, however all opinions are 100% my own). Not sure if you can pull off a blanket scarf? I have a few tips for wearing blanket scarves that I’ll be sharing at the bottom of this post.

So this entire look (including my hair – check InstaStories for a mini-tutorial) took barely any time to style. That’s another thing I love about blanket scarves, they can make you look super pulled together with minimal effort on your part.

When I plan to wear a blanket scarf, I know that I’m going to let my scarf be the focal point of the outfit. Because they are a little on the bulky side, I like having my hair pulled back away from my face. If I wear a blanket scarf when my hair is down and curled, sometimes it can just feel like too much, especially when I’m teaching. Also, by leaving a few pieces of hair down in the front, it frames your face and will give your pony a softer look. If you have long hair, try pulling it back the next time you wear a blanket scarf. I promise it will make you feel less claustrophobic. Ha! (This hairstyle is also great if you’re going to wear a hat).

Sometimes I wear blanket scarves with dresses but, if I’m going to wear a blanket scarf with denim, I make sure to wear a more fitted sweater. You don’t want to add extra bulk. By wearing a fitted sweater and skinny jeans it brings everything in, streamlining your look and allowing the scarf to be the focus. Just add some statement earrings, maybe a hat, and you’re good to go! Easiest outfit ever.

Side note: totally obsessed with these jeans. They’re my first pair by this brand and I’m pretty sure that I now need every pair made.
