the one with blanket scarf remix

The high in the Hoosier state today is 9 degrees . . . and it feels like -12 with the wind speeds. I’m sure most of you are in the same boat some even worse . . . and if it’s better where you live please do not tell me . . . the wildabeast known as cranky Bex night come out.

Thankfully blanket scarves are a dime a dozen as far as style is concerned this season. Sitting in my super cold window filled office becomes just a little more bearable when I can wear a blanket over my usual jeans and polo (retail car sales, guys! it’s a joy). But sometimes I like a little change up so here’s a blanket scarf remix. . .

1. poncho . . .


how to :: fold your scarf into a rectangle. and throw it over your shoulders. take the right side and tuck it over your left shoulder. repeat with the left side. then tuck and style until it looks best.

2. cardigan/vest . . .



how to :: fold your scarf into a triangle. and throw it over your shoulders. boom. you can even belt it for bonus points.

3. basic . . .


how to :: bunch your scarf up long ways. take one edge and place it right on your collar bone with most of the scarf hanging on the other side. then loop the long side around your neck until it’s all up. tuck the end under the loop for it to stay.

What are your favorite ways to wear your blanket scarf?

    Love it! I know the blanket scarf is so trendy but I have to say, I’ve had a few times when it’s come in super handy to have a giant blanket hanging from my neck. I mostly wear it like your poncho style.

    I’m all about blanket scarves this time of year! I usually wear them like your vest/cardigan style, but I should really try the poncho style too. 🙂

      me too! the poncho style is how I normally wear mine since it keeps both sides warm 🙂

    That scarf is amazing and I love that you taught me new ways to wear a scarf. Because, y’know, I wear one almost every single day and need new ways to style ’em. #thestruggleisreal

    I love scarves! I really like wearing my blanket scarf as a racerback vest (with or without a belt). On the days when I am feeling less than skinny jeans ready, I throw it on and I get tons of compliments and questions.
