Trend Alert: Here's Why You Need A Blanket Scarf
I don't often consider myself a complainer, but once temperatures hit below 50 degrees, I'm definitely one to groan a little (or a lot). Of course, since I was old enough to voice my strong opinions about fashion, I hated the bulkiness of winter clothes. Puffy jackets? Please. I avoided them at all costs. Ask my mother. As the years went by, I found ways to get around the heavy duty clothes that came along with freezing cold weather, but that usually meant I was a in a constant state of a-little-bit-too-cold. I admired the woman who could remain chic and fashionable while slugging through slush and dirty snow, and I accepted that I would just never be her - until I came across the blanket scarf.Ahh, the blanket scarf. It is the perfect accessory to accompany a chunky sweater, adding an extra layer while still looking effortlessly trendy. Wear it wrapped around your neck a few times or let it drape over your shoulders and down your back. Either way, you'll definitely be warm.True to its name, it can honestly substitute for a blanket as well because it is really that big. While it may not entirely replace a winter coat come the end of November, it is the comfiest, coziest, warmest addition to a late-fall wardrobe.I bought mine from Zara last year, and I can honestly say I look forward to wearing it again soon. Bring it on, winter.
