Hi all! As you all know, blanket scarves are all the rage this season – and for obvious reasons! They’re super soft, keep you toasty, and can be styled so many different ways for versatility. I recently (FINALLY) got my first blanket scarf from Bourbon & Boots, and was super excited to open the package and wear it out! However, when I pulled out the scarf, I realized just how HUGE these things are. They’re not called blanket scarves for no reason – they’re literally the size of a throw!
This led me on a super serious Blanket Scarf Mission: I scoured through tons of blogs, Instagram accounts, even Youtube tutorials, and came away with 4 of my favorite ways to style a blanket scarf. Hope you enjoy and are able to use these versatile looks!
How to Wear a Blanket Scarf
Look 1: Shawl Style
This is probably the easiest and warmest style to wear a blanket scarf. You simply fold the scarf in half, making a hot dog style rectangle, and drape it over your shoulders. It’s basically like a shawl…or a blanket!

Look 2: Belt Style
The belt style is nice because you don’t have to worry about holding the scarf on you if it gets windy. Plus, it keeps your core pretty warm since it’s belted to your mid-section. To achieve this look, simply fold the scarf TWICE in the hot dog style, creating a thinner rectangle. Then, you can wear it around your neck like a regular scarf and pin it down with a belt.
Look 3: Infinity Style
The third way to wear a blanket scarf is truly ginormous and will keep your core super cozy. Simply fold the scarf into a triangle, then tie two of the corners behind your neck and tuck the ends under the scarf. Voila! You’ve got the quintessential blanket scarf look that will keep you stylish and toasty even in the autumn chill.
Look 4: Jacket Style
The fourth style takes look 3 and puts a jacket over it, rather than simply wearing it over a top or sweater. This is perfect for an especially chilly day when you need an extra layer of warmth. Make sure the blanket scarf gets to peep out here!
