How to Style a Blanket Scarf!

Boutique Blog, The Barn BoutiqueShelby Miller2 Comments

So often we have customers come into our shoppe and fall in love with the blanket scarf trend; however once they try it on they are not so in love with the way it makes them feel. We frequently hear complaints on how it's overwhelming, too hot, and too close to their neck. We decided to take the blanket scarf trend in another direction! Check out our step-by-step tutorial with photo instructions!  

Ditch the idea of wearing the blanket scarf around your neck, we are wrapping it around your body! 

Step 1: Open the blanket scarf as wide as it will go holding it horizontally

Step 2: Drape the scarf over the back of your shoulders making sure the sides are even

Step 3: Wrap the scarf with a skinny belt and buckle

Viola, it's as easy as that! 

Not only is this absolutely adorable but it is also more practical. By wearing your blanket scarf this way you are avoiding the frequent complaints of it being too bulky. The perks of wearing your scarf this way is that you get to see more of the scarf by showcasing the design and pattern. So often we purchase scarfs based on the print but when we wrap them around your neck and the design is hidden. Another advantage is that the blanket scarf is acting more as an outerwear piece rather than just an accessory. This is perfect for the fall weather and even into the winter!
