It’s about that time of year again when plaid blanket scarves will rule the world. I normally love Summer and warm weather but this growing baby bump is making me yearn for cooler temperatures. There are normal scarves and then there are blanket scarves. Blanket scarves are gigantic and can be overwhelming to figure out how to wear. If you find yourself saying: “How the heck to I tie one of these things?” then keep reading…
Today I’m going to show you six ways to wear a plaid blanket scarf. I’m sure there are a million different ways but these are ways to make the blanket scarf look less huge.
Fold the square scarf into a half triangle. Start from one end and roll loosely (looks like a french bread roll). Drape over neck and tuck the loose ends in. Or you can try to tie the ends of your blanket scarf together and wrap around your neck.
Fold the square scarf into a half triangle and drape over your body like a shawl/blanket.
This is similar to #1 but instead of leaving the loose ends out, tuck underneath with a loose knot. Fold the blanket scarf into a half triangle. Drape over your neck and pull the two ends from the back to the front. Tie a loose knot underneath to conceal the ends.
5. BELTED PONCHO
Fold the blanket scarf into a half triangle. Drape over your shoulders and use a belt to hold everything in place. Mine is higher than normal due to my baby bump but you can wear yours on your natural waist.
This is exactly like #4 but the only difference is that you shift the scarf to one side. Fold the blanket scarf into a half triangle. Drape over your neck and pull the two ends from the back to the front. Tie a loose knot underneath to conceal the ends.
I posted this collage last Fall but never got around to actually explaining how to tie each style. Hopefully this post will better explain each one. 🙂
Now let’s talk about these AMAZING ankle booties! I’m been raving about them on Instagram and hopefully you were lucky enough to snag your size because they’re selling out fast. I love them so much that I got them in both cognac and wild mushroom. I also ordered the charcoal grey to see what the color looks like in real life. The dip in the front is great for petites and doesn’t cut off your legs. The chunky heel measures 3″ and the shaft height is 3.5″. Leather quality is really nice and worth the price tag. I love the simple almond toe and classic design. These look great with jeans and skirts/dresses. They pretty much go with everything. I would highly recommend them! You can buy them HERE.
