If you’re anything like me you were so excited to go out and buy your first blanket scarf! So years ago after I picked one up I got home and then realized, now what do I actually do with this?! Haha, can you relate? After playing around and wearing them now for some time I have figured out my favorite ways to wear it. Lately I’ve had many people ask me how to wear one. There are many many ways you could style it but I am sharing my favorite 4 ways to wear a blanket scarf. Scarf and outfit details are linked at the bottom of the page!
4 ways to wear a blanket scarf
So the first 3 ways to style it you want to start with it folded like the picture below. Fold it in half diagonally so it makes one large triangle.
For this first and most classic way you want to start with the large part in front and then wrap the ends around the back and hang them over to the front. This is pictured below and in the first picture as well. If you don’t want to bring them all the way around you could also loosely tie them together in the back. Think of how someone would tie a napkin around their neck hehe.
Next is how to wear like a wrap style poncho. Start with 1/3 of it draped over your shoulders (pictured below) and then hanging the largest part in front and wrapping the other end over the first. Throw the end piece over the back of your shoulder.
This last poncho style is super easy! Just start with the largest portion in back and drape the sides over your shoulders in front and adjust until even. You can leave it loose like this or add a belt if you want as well.
This last style is basically wearing it more like a regular scarf. Fold it lengthwise in several different sections folding it almost like an accordion. Throw it around your neck or if yours is thin enough you may be able to tie or wrap it depending on what look you want.
