STYLE STYLE INSPIRATION

How to Style a Plaid Blanket Scarf

Even though I’m in Florida I’m totally aware that it’s cooling down around the country, as I’m seeing a lot more layers and scarves pop up in my blog reads and Instagram feeds. One of my favorite trends so far is this plaid blanket scarf. A scarf is the perfect layering tool, as you can wear it with everything froma light-weight tee to layered with sweaters and jackets for added warmth.

I absolutely love the idea of an oversized “blanket”-type scarf in a bold plaid pattern. It feels very this season, yet timeless as well, and the cozy factor is undeniable. Featured below are just a few stylish ways you can wear your scarf, at any age, plus keep scrolling for a round-up of our favorite blanket scarves. At more or less under $35ish, it’s a worthy addition to your closet, regardless of your geography. Wondering how to tie it up? Check out Amanda, from Advice from a Twentysomething (a favorite read), who shows you how.

Because Shanna Said So //  The Northeast Girl // One Little Momma

Southern Curls & Pearls // Purely Peanut // Bows & Sequins //  Lost in Vogue // Pop of Style // Lemon Stripes

Sandy a la Mode // Cute & Little //  A Southern Drawl

Editor’s note: I spent considerable time searching for a wider cross section of women, both in age, backgrounds and body types. Challenging! Please know that whenever I share style inspiration posts I’m talking to you, even if you don’t exactly see yourself (heck, where’s that 30something red head like me?). I’d only share style ideas that would work for a majority of us real girls! 

OK, now down to business… shop plaid blanket scarves here (all under $50, and some way, way less): 

Any favorites? Which color way or way to style you prefer? I love the idea of pairing it with a white or stripes, denim and booties, and calling it a (cozy!) day.

    Thanks for all the different styling ideas! I often feel like adding this much bulk to my upper body (which is already proportionately larger) can be risky. These ideas make it seem more doable. Plus, it would always be a nice desk accessory for the frigid office 🙂

    First….LOVE the new look! It is fabulous! I just bought what I think is a blanket scarf/poncho/shawl hybrid at Kohls! Although it isn’t plaid. Still looking for the perfect plaid scarf…that Choies one above looks perfect.

    XOXO, Jenn

    I got into the hype and bought a blanket scarf and it’s going to be in the upper 80s this week in southern CA! I tired to style my blanket scarf for fun and had no idea how to tie it…it just as one big mess around my neck.
