OK it has been super rainy this week in NYC, and ugh… it looks like it’s going to continue through the weekend. So, I decided to share my look from this weekend when I went to visit my besties and brother on Long Island. It was a simple cool weather, rain-appropriate look – that included my fave blanket scarf that always keeps me so warm + cozy.
I love to throw a big blanket scarf over an otherwise simple + comfy outfit. They can seriously add so much depth (and warmth) – it completes the entire look. Urban Outfitters does these best, whether you are looking for something for cooler temps (best time to buy, they’re all on sale!) or lighter styles for the warmer weather. This particular day was a travel day for me so I love nothing more than being comfortable while I’m lugging around my things and sitting on a train for an hour – plus the scarf doubles as a blanket ;).
Blanket scarves can either be worn wrapped around your shoulders (like shown) or around your neck like your typical scarf. No matter how you throw this scarf on you, it usually requires only slight adjusting to make it appear elegantly disheveled. Most importantly, whichever way you rock this – it is SO comfy + warm.
I picked some super cute blanket scarves below in many different colors to help you get a similar look. Since the scarf is pretty chunky, it’s best to pair it with more form-fitting jeans + a top or sweater. Shop the scarves below:
