Between bundling up in multiple layers and wrapping ourselves from blistering gusts of winds and snow, surviving in the dead of winter can run a real dent in our style. Of course, it’s no secret that our wardrobe can get a little monotonous pretty fast too, but that’s where blanket scarves come into play.
You know the ones — the literal, oversized scarf that runs pretty big and can double as a Snuggie. Well, not as stylish though. Whether it’s puffer vests or classic plaid peacoats, no matter how you style your outerwear, blanket scarves offer an easy opportunity to stave off the boredom of winter fashion without the sacrifice of warm and cozy.
To help you stylize your wardrobe this winter that just screams comfort, opt for a blanket scarf to add a bold, block of color to your outfit — from vibrant colors to prints, knits and celebrity favorites, there’s something out there for everyone.
