The Best Blanket Scarves To Wrap Up In

It’s not just officially winter, it’s officially cold. Commuters are swaddled in padded jackets, blanket scarves?and hats and scarfs. It’s proper wrap-up-warm weather. How to do that stylishly??Invest in a blanket scarf, cashmere if you can afford it. It offers something of the comfort of a duvet day, but without having to stay home. Here are some of my favourites.

Stripes always look chic, and I love the mix of brights along with earthy charcoal here. I also love how it’s styled – a little bohemian but very sophisticated.

Striped scarf, €19.95 at Zara

I think this shade of taupe is so elegant, and with the right skin tone, works beautifully with other neutrals. I’m pale, however, so I would pair this scarf with shades of rich red and burgundy to offer extra warmth. There’s no need for clever styling ideas either, a simple one-shoulder drape looks utterly chic.

Wool foulard with double fringing, €49.95 at Massimo Dutti

This Mint Velvet blanket cape is reversible, which I love as it offers two looks for the price of one. Some women find this cape-style easier to wear than the oversized scarfs above as they drape more easily. They work just as well over coats as over sweaters.

Navy and oatmeal blanket cape, €95 at Mint Velvet

This gorgeous blanket wrap has a lovely fringed finish that adds a gorgeous?hint of texture to the look. I love the depth of colour and the simplicity of the styling here. Perfect for a non-duvet duvet day!

Houndstooth check poncho, €150 at Maje
