17 Blanket Scarves That'll Help You Survive The Chillier Weather

Cold weather and I — we don't get along, to put it nicely. So when the fall and winter seasons come along, only one thing can save me: the blanket scarf. Equal parts comfy and chic, the blanket scarf is possibly my favorite thing about the season changing. Aside for, of course, all the apple-stuffed desserts and cozy socks.

When the last days of summer come to a close and the temperature drops, it's pretty much a sign for me to start my hibernation. Unfortunately, I've got a job to attend to and a life to live, so I can't exactly stay cozied up at home until spring and summer roll on by. The closest I can get to laying in bed all day is throwing on a blanket scarf, which basically feels like I'm wearing a fuzzy blanket in every situation.

When you live in a metropolitan area, there are some wardrobe staples you need to survive the winter (if you're in a city that goes through seasons, of course). These include a super warm parka, trusty snow boots, rain boots, fleece-lined gloves, a cozy hat, HEATTECH, and of course, said scarf. With these few things, you can pretty much take any snow day mother nature brings you. In this city, comfort often overrides fashion. But with the blanket scarf, it doesn't have to. Oversized is all the rage lately, thanks to Lenny Kravitz's huge scarf.

Cozy lovers, beware: lots of comfort ahead.
