An oversized blanket scarf is not the easiest winter accessory to style. The sheer size alone can be overwhelming to many people.

 

 

In today’s post, I will show you the easiest ways to wear a blanket scarf and still look put together.

As fate would have it, we received a ton of snow this past weekend [hello, Alaska winter wonderland!]. And I already had this oversized blanket scarf outfit with this affordable over the knee boots (OTK) in the queue for today [so here it is].

Just before the arctic winter snow dump started, I went on a quick errand run and somehow found myself shopping for winter pieces. I fell in love with this yellow Old Navy blanket scarf, and the price was right. So I made it mine.

 

For reference, I am a size 4. 130-ish lbs, 5”5, and 8.5/9 in shoes.

One of the easiest ways I’ve discovered to style a blanket scarf is to wear it under a coat [like I did with this OTK boots outfit] in the winter or on top of a sleeveless vest [like I am wearing in this post] in the fall.

 

And this is how I would rock an oversized blanket scarf outfit with a dress on cool summer evenings or transitioning months.

HOW TO WEAR A BLANKET SCARF OUTFIT

For this fall-inspired look, I opted for a dressed-up casual look. A fashionable but practical look that can be worn time and time again.

I wore a plain black 3/4 sleeve fitted top (similar) as my base layer. For some warmth, I chose this lightweight Old Navy puffer vest. Although the vest is not a heavy duty clothing, I stayed warm throughout the entire time I was out and about.

I’ll admit that the cozy plaid scarf (here), and over-the-knee boots (similar) provided additional insulation. The vest also has a slightly fitted bodice and two functional pockets to give you a flattering figure.

And the quilted vest is on sale! It is currently under $20 and is available in seven different colors. You’d have to pick through the remaining color and size combinations since it’s flying off the shelf.

 

Additionally, the color options of the vest are on-trend and easy to layer under your winter coat. And through the start of spring and cold summer nights. You can also pair the vest with skinny scarves or statement jewelry and even bold colors like olive or burgundy pants.

Other clothing options you can wear as part of a blanket scarf outfit include a fitted top and skirt, and even a tee and shorts (although this might not be the most ideal option if you’re trying to stay warm).

 

You might have seen this affordable over the knee boots from DSW in a recent blog post. I thought it would be nice to highlight how versatile these OTK boots are by showing you a fall outfit styling the boots (early winter look here).

Gone are the days when a decent pair of OTK boots cost an arm and a leg. These boots are fashionable, comfortable (hello block heels!), made with a soft suede fabric and feature almond toe for comfort.

TIPS ABOUT OVERSIZED SCARVES: HOW TO CUT A BLANKET SCARF

IF you find that your large square scarves are too bulky or overpowering for you, a simple fix is to cut the scarf in half diagonally.

 

While I love mine bigger and better, cutting the scarf makes sense for many people. Plus you’ll end up with two scarves – one for you and one as a gift to a friend or family member.

Here’s how to cut a blanket scarf:

  1. Lay the scarf out on a flat surface.
  2. Then fold it into a triangle shape. (i.e., fold the scarf into 1 large triangle).
  3. Now, cut it with a pair of sharp scissors.
    Don’t worry about getting the perfect straight line.

 

Note: The area of the cut might not be smooth/straight. I wouldn’t stress about it because that edge will end up hidden when you tie the scarf around your neck.

    Awesome! I love scarves, in general, but I tend to forget about them, here in Alaska. That seems crazy, right? I wear so many layers here, I just rip everything off when I’m inside, so as to eliminate the bulk. That usually means my scarf comes off. When I lived in NM, I would simply wear a sweater and a scarf and be done. I’ll try to be more attentive to my scarves. 😉

      I feel the same way too! I always layer up and rip off the layers when I start to get a little too warm. Thanks for stopping by, Celia!
