I wasn't too crazy about blanket coats when those hit the scene, but I can totally get behind the idea of blanket scarves. Basically just larger, cozier scarves, blanket scarves sacrifice none of the fashion, but provide all of the warmth. This is especially nice for those of us who are perpetually cold and can't always tuck our feet under our dogs' bellies (life hack: a lap dog will keep you warm through winter).
But seriously, whether you wrap it around your body, neck, or even face; a blanket scarf is about to be your new, favorite cold-weather accessory. And in case you needed another excuse to dive into the world of blankeet scarves, wearing a nice, thick scarf could even help ward off the common cold. Yale School of Medicine Immunobiology professor, Akiko Iwasaki told Today.com that the cold virus replicates more easily in cooler temperatures. So by keeping nasal passages warmer by wearing a scarf over the nose, we could be less likely to develop cold symptoms. Sounds like a win-win-win to me. To help you more easily find your new security blanket (scarf) for the season, here are 11 cute options that are still oh-so-cozy.
Geometric colorblocking is always a good idea.
To go with everything in your closet.
Tell me she doesn't look warm.
Bright colors just make the cold a little more bearable.
Hand-tied fringe gives this scarf such a cozy touch.
So classic. So warm.
7. Mixed Patterns
The perfect statement scarf.
A scarf so thick and warm that a little bare-midriff action won't even faze you.
In case you can't decide on chevron or plaid, try both on one scarf.
10. Black & White
Black and white does go with everything, after all.
And if you're looking for one that's actually big enough to double as a real blanket, this is it.
Here's to a warm winter.
