5 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf

A blanket scarf is such a versatile accessory and can be worn in so many different ways. Blanket scarves are so cozy and fun to wear. And they are wonderful for adding warmth and color to an outfit.

Can you tell yet that I love blanket scarves?

There endless numbers of ways you could wear a blanket scarf. With all that fabric, it can be challenging to finagle a blanket scarf into a wearable style, though. It can be helpful to have an idea of how you want it to look before you start to arrange it.

My scarf is from Modcloth and came in my fall Fab Fit Fun subscription box. (If you’re curious what else came in the Fab Fit Fun box along with the scarf, check out my unboxing post.) I love the variety of colors in it. It goes with so many different outfits!

Here are my 5 favorite ways to wear a blanket scarf:
  1. Belted
    Fold the scarf in half along the diagonal. Drape the long side across your shoulders and bring the long points to the front. Add a belt, leaving free the portion that is draped down your back.
  2. Classic style
    Again, fold the scarf in half diagonally. Then, wrap the scarf around your neck. Arrange the large side of the triangle in front, bringing the other two points over your shoulders and to the front as well. This is my favorite way to wear a blanket scarf. It just feels so cozy!
  3. Poncho style
    Folded on the diagonal, drape and arrange the scarf over your shoulders and tuck the ends securely at the neck area. This look is so elegant, don’t you think?
  4. Shawl style
    For this style, simply wrap the folded scarf around your shoulders. I love to wear my blanket scarf this way on chilly evenings.
  5. Simple
    Just fold the scarf lengthwise several times along one of the sides. Then drape over the back of your neck. Simple, right? (Hence the name….Obviously.)

I hope you’re feeling inspired to create all sorts of new ways to wear and enjoy your blanket scarf. I know I’ve been enjoying mine!
