Happy Monday everyone! This past weekend was SO cold but I hope it was wonderful and full of fall activities! Unfortunately I've been feeling a little under the weather and had tons of homework this weekend, so we didn't really get to do much. BUT this Friday we are finally going to the pumpkin patch and I cannot wait!!
Because this weekend was so cold, I wanted to do a post on different ways to wear a blanket scarf. The scarf featured in this post is from Asos but unfortunately it is out of stock :( I literally got it in a week ago and now it's not available! If & when it is restocked I will be sure to let you know. They have TONS of other oversized blanket scarfs on their website so if you are really wanting one right now I am sure you will find one you love!
The first way I'm going to show is probably the most popular way to wear a blanket scarf. First, fold your scarf in half, connecting opposite corners, making a triangle. With the tip pointing down, wrap your scarf around your neck by crossing the tails in the back and pulling them down in front & there you have it!
The second way begins with having your scarf folded in a triangle as seen above. Then you simply drape the scarf around your shoulders to wear it like a cape! The tip of the triangle will be pointing down your back, and the tails will come down over your shoulders. This is such an easy, cozy way to wear a blanket scarf.
If you like the idea of wearing your scarf like a cape, but want it to look more put together, rather than just draped over your shoulders, try taking the tail on the right side and crossing it over your left shoulder. Then, take the tail on the left side and tuck it under the scarf on the right side. You may need to ask someone to help you with this so you can make sure it is wrapped and tucked tightly.
If you want to wear your blanket scarf like an infinity scarf, this next tutorial is for you! Begin with your scarf folded in a triangle as seen above. Take the tails of the scarf and tie them together. Then, place your scarf around your neck by placing the knot on one shoulder and the long side on the other shoulder. Next, take the long side and flip it over your head in a figure eight, wrapping it around your neck like you would with an infinity scarf. Because on side of your scarf is going to be bulkier than the other, you need to play with it to make sure it lays even and you are satisfied!
If you want to wear your blanket scarf like a traditional scarf, begin with it folded in a triangle and start folding it at the tip (like you would to a bandana) until you have a long, slim rectangle. You can then wear your scarf draped around your neck (with nothing hanging over your back like you saw above) or you can wear the traditional way by holding it in front of your neck and wrapping it around by crossing the tails in the back and letting them hang in front!
I hope you enjoyed this post and learned some new & creative ways to wear your blanket scarves! If you have a different way to wear a blanket scarf, let me know in the comments below :)
