The days are getting shorter, the wind is getting colder, and before you know it you’ll be seeing your own breath when you head outside. As much as we love fall fashion, the frigid temps call for bundling up in the coziest way possible.

That’s where the wonder of blanket scarves comes in. These oversized, blanket-like scarves are THE accessory for both style and warmth when the cold hits.

Keep reading to learn all about how to wear these puppies, the hottest styles this season, and why they need to be your new winter wardrobe staple.

What is a Blanket Scarf?

Blanket scarves are exactly what they sound like – scarves meets blanket in one fabulous, must-have accessory.

They’re oversized scarves that use super chunky knits or extra large fabrics to create a scarf you can wrap around yourself like a blanket. But unlike an actual blanket, you don’t have to sacrifice use of your hands or feel restricted when you wear one.

These cozy scarves first got popular in the 2015/2016 winter seasons when designers started making them on a larger scale. Since then, they’ve exploded into a winter wardrobe essential.

Unlike a standard scarf that just wraps around your neck, a blanket scarf is large enough to drape around your shoulders and envelop your upper body in soft, cushy warmth.

How to Wear a Blanket Scarf

One of the best things about blanket scarves is how versatile they are to wear. There are tons of stylish ways to rock them:

Drape it around your neck and shoulders, allowing the long sides to hang loose like a shawl in front.
Wrap it around your neck once, then loosely drape the ends in front or let them hang long.
Tie opposite ends together for a poncho effect.
Fold in half at the shoulders for a cape look.
Twist it into a coil shape and loop it around your neck.
Belt it at the waist for a thick tunic effect.
Since they come in so many colors, patterns and materials, you can dress them up or down seamlessly. Wear with jeans and boots, pair with a dress, or layer one over your coat or jacket for extra warmth.
