I have re-created this outfit every fall for the past 2 years – it never goes out of style! By now you are likely (well) aware of how to tie / style a blanket scarf. When blanket scarves became popular two years ago it seems that fashionistas everywhere had tutorials on how to tie them. While I am still a huge fan of the ‘traditional’ way of wearing them (I wear this plaid one all the time with a long sleeve striped shirt), styling a blanket scarf over a dress like I have done here is a more creative way to wear a blanket scarf.
To get this look I simply unfold the blanket scarf to it’s full size, wrap it around my shoulders, and then tie a belt around the whole thing (so that you still have some shape!) Pair it with boots and you’ve got a fall ready look that is cozy, comfortable and right-on trend. I have a soft spot for dresses, so wearing a blanket scarf with a dress is an easy way to transition my dresses into the cooler fall weather.
This plaid blanket scarf is definitely my most frequently worn scarf, but I have a number of others that I will also style this way. My second favorite is probably my green and navy plaid over a black long sleeve dress. In case you want some more ways to recreate this look, below I’ve included two widgets: one for my favorite blanket scarves, and one for comfortable long sleeve dresses that would be great to wear with blanket scarves. Happy shopping!
Ps. It is finally fall here in Vancouver! I got my first pumpkin spice latte over the weekend (so good), I baked an apple pie, and I went to a pumpkin patch! It was the perfect fall weekend and now I am ready to hit the ground running for the work week ahead. I hope you all had a great weekend as well! (Oh, and if you have any great pumpkin recipes, PLEASE share them with me since I now have so much pumpkin I need to use!!)
