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. 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

YouTube vlogger EP Style knows you can't leave the house with an unruly scarf. Her simple handkerchief tying technique is basically foolproof to ensure you'll never look unkempt, no matter how vicious the weather may be.

2. Cowgirl Chic

Erin Busbee of YouTube channel Busbee Style may live in the South, but that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to dress for the winter! Busbee takes her 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

YouTube vlogger Melanie Gibson likes to let her scarf hang low for a casual, yet comfy look. Simply fold your scarf to your desired length and let that baby just hang out.

4. To Infinity And Beyond

Megan Antinucci of YouTube channel bellanoochi loves how versatile her scarf can be! If you're a fan of the cold weather classic infinity scarf, simply tie your blanket scarf into a large loop and wrap it around, however you'd like.

5. Tie It Under

If you need your large scarf to shrink in size, YouTube channel AliJBoutique's tutorial has just the trick for you. 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

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

YouTuber Emily Gemma knows every scarf tying trick in the book, and we especially love how she styles her blanket scarves with matching belts! Just fold your scarf long ways with both ends equidistant from each other and wrap around the belt of your choice. So chic!

Did you scarf up all of those tutorials? Now you're guaranteed to be the hottest looking blanket scarf-wearing fashionista on the block!
