I don’t have any conclusive evidence, but I’d venture to say that the blanket scarf may just have been the most popular stocking stuffer this Christmas. (Let’s just say I was standing in a TSA security line over the holidays with more than one outfit twin, right down to the tartan pattern.) Plaid, plush and perfectly positioned to be a fashion accessory and a functional winter warming layer, the blanket scarf isn’t going anywhere soon.
But with all that extra fabric, there’s a few ways to wrap n’ roll this little number. Fortunately, the folks at the style savvy Southern-sassy site Boots & Bourbon breaks it down:
Hold the fabric by the corners and fold into a loose triangle. Wrap around your neck, letting the point of the triangle serve as a centerpiece. Tuck in the edges. Adjust front of scarf to lay flat.
Best worn with: The oversized white button-up shirt or a simple tee.
Start with a loose triangle fold. Center the shawl on the back of your neck then wrap forward over your shoulders. Hold the edges firmly with one hand, while you slide a thin belt behind you and buckle the scarf into place.
Best worn with: A simple dress or a long top with skinny jeans or leggings.
Loosely roll the scarf up into one long piece. Pop your collar and tuck the scarf underneath. Let it hang low and add long lines to your ensemble.
Best worn with: A collared jacket that falls at the waist or a long peacoat.
Loosely roll the scarf lengthwise. Center it behind your neck, then loosely wrap around once. Bring the ends around to the front of your neck and secure them in a loose knot.
Best worn with: Something dressy-casual like a shirtdress or a skirt and top.

You’ll find these super soft accessories around Newport or shop all scarves from Bourbon & Boots by CLICKING HERE. Maybe it’s from my many years spent living below the Mason Dixon (or from being a member of The Bourbon Club at Old Glory in Georgetown which requires experiencing the over 80 varieties on site in one year) but I love this site. They had me at the Thelma & Louise whiskey glasses.
And things like this:
Have a good one, y’all!
