Are you hip with the latest scarf trend? Blanket scarves are my favorite scarf trend yet. They are chunky, cozy, and crazy cute. There are quite a few ways to wear these expansive scarves, and I will highlight a few of my favorites. Here is the 411 on how to rock a blanket scarf.30-blanket-scarves-bloggers

The “normal” way: This is just your average every-day way to wear a scarf. Because blanket scarves are quite a bit thicker than normal scarves, they take a bit getting used to and can be a bit tricky to tie at first, but with a little help from Pinterest you will be a pro blanket scarf wearer in no time!

Belted: I love this way to style blanket scarves because it is classy and unique. Drape your blanket scarf over your shoulders and let the ends of the scarf hang down the front of your body. Next, take a belt and place it over the scarf and secure it around your waist. Now you have a super cute, unique way to stay warm and rock the scarf! This style almost makes the scarf act as a vest. Wear with nice dark jeans and riding boots for a classy look.

As a shawl: In this style you just wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl. This is a nice casual way to keep cozy and cute. Wear your scarf-shawl over a simple long-sleeved shirt with jeans and boots!

Now go rock those blanket scarves, ladies! I found a few adorable ones at Charlotte Russe, Just FYI 🙂

XOXO, Chels

Blanket scarves are my new obsession. They are huge, chunky scarves that could literally pass as a blanket. The only problem with my obsession? Blanket scarves are mucho expensive. My favorite one from Zara is 42$! Aint nobody got money for that! So, I used my noggin and came up with a solution to my conundrum. Here is how to make your very own blanket scarf!74295fc6e466b4bab6627ad9c73b6ce3

  1. Purchase 2-2.5 yards of flannel fabric. I got mine at Joanne’s fabric store, but you can sometimes find it at Walmart or any other fabric store!
  2. Using the patterned flannel edge as a guide, trim the edges of each side of your scarf.
  3. Grab the loose threads on the side and pull them down gently, fraying the edges of the scarf. Keep doing this until there are no loose threads and you have a nicely frayed edge. Repeat on each side of the scarf. The frayed edges add a nice rustic flare to the scarf, but if you want a more clean cut look then leave the edges un-frayed.

I cannot wait to make a whole truckload of these babies! Will YOU be trying out this cozy DIY?

XOXO, Chels
