7 Ways To Wear A Blanket Scarf Without Looking Like You’re Drowning In It

When the weather outside is more than frightful, your trusty blanket scarf promises to keep you warm and chic — as long as you know how to style it.


When it comes to braving winter weather, no accessory comes more in clutch than a toasty, trendy blanket scarf. But unlike their lesser scarf siblings, blanket scarves can be especially tricky to style if you’re inexperienced because of the amount of material. And let’s face it: If you can’t rock your winter apparel, you might as well go cold (just kidding).


Lucky for you, we’ve scoured the interwebs to find the best vlogger tutorials to help you become the master of your beloved blanket scarves. With these fashionable options, your winter outfits will truly be all wrapped up.


1. Give Me A Handkerchief

2. Cowgirl Chic

Busbee takes her blanket scarf, folds it into a triangle, and lets the tip of the triangle hang forward while folding the other two sides around her neck. Yee haw!


3. Hang Low

4. To Infinity And Beyond

5. Tie It Under

Fold your scarf into a large triangle, and then scrunch it up before you wrap it around your neck. Wrap the loose ends around to the front of your chest, and tuck any loose pieces in before tying a knot under the scarf. Talk about a statement scarf!


6. Warm Shoulder


<!– iframe –>YouTuber Juli Bauer is a scarf tying expert, but we’re especially obsessed with how she effortlessly uses her blanket scarf like a blanket! Take your scarf, fold it long ways, and simply toss one side over your shoulder for a warm, cozy ensemble.


7. Belted Blanket
