Happy New Year’s guys! This is the first post of 2016 and I decided to make it a ‘How To’ type of post. From now on I’m going to start including styling tips more often, rather than just writing about how I put my outfit together.
Scarves are great accessories for the fall and winter months, as they add a cozy appeal to any outfit, and now there are so many styles to choose from. You can find normal sized scarfs that get the job done of keeping your neck warm, to skinny scarves that are primarily worn as fashionable accessories, and my current favorite–a blanket scarf. They are big enough to be used as an actual blanket, but that’s not how I’ll be using it today. Sure, I’ll wrap myself around it and use it to keep me warm. However, I also want it to highlight my outfit, rather than make me look like I just rolled out of bed. For that reason I chose a blanket scarf with fringe trim and a great blend of colors. Like purple, orange, brown, as well as light and dark shades or grey. Since blanket scarves are so big they look best paired with wardrobe basics. Jeans, leggings, and even a knit dresses fall in this category. In my case, I opted for a pair of scuba leggings. I could’ve worn a basic white T, fringe booties, and a hat for a casual movie night. I wanted to make my look dinner appropriate, so I traded the t-shirt for a long sleeve dark grey blouse and a pair of black patent heels. I’m loving how versatile the blanket scarf is.
Tell me your thoughts. Are you loving this trend too? Yes? No? Maybe… xoxo
