If I had to pick one hero piece for fall and winter, it would be the blanket scarf. If you're looking for a powerhouse with ultimate versatility, the blanket scarf is for you! You won't believe how many ways there are to wear it. Just search blanket scarf on Pinterest and you'll be amazed by all the options.

The best part about the two blanket scarf looks that I'm sharing is that there is no folding required! So, let's do this...Let's talk about how to style a blanket scarf!
First, we have the poncho look...Ponchos are hot hot hot right now. I definitely have several traditional ponchos myself, but what I love about blanket scarves are that essentially it's several pieces in one.

If you took a peek at my closet, you would see a slew of plaid pretties. And this little baby is my newest acquisition. I may end up gifting it to my bestie because it just screams her...I'm a giver, but I digress. This way of styling a blanket scarf resembles a cape...It is not for the faint of heart. It's a bit dramatic in fact, but a perfect way to showcase your scarf's fabulous print. You simply start your drape from the front, instead of the back like with the poncho.
