Blanket scarfs, capes, whatever you want to name them, seem to be really popular this season and it's a trend that I couldn't resist! An acceptable way to go out in public with what is basically a blanket wrapped around me? Yes please! They're perfect for layering, whether you just put it over a chunky knit for a bit of extra warmth, or really wrap yourself up and layer it over a jacket. I absolutely adore mine. They're a great way to add a bit of colour to your Autumn outfits and I'm not gonna lie, it makes me feel kinda fancy! I think they're great for teaming with a casual jeans and tee style outfit, but also great for when you're dressed up a bit more and want something that's lightweight and will keep the breeze off your shoulders.
I got this lovely check pattern blanket scarf from Primark for an absolute steel! When I saw it was only £5 I didn't even need to think twice about buying it. It's huge and easily covers my top half, but is still quite lightweight and could easily be worn as a chunky scarf. It's also super soft and isn't that horrible scratchy knit that is uncomfortable to wear. I love check, plaid and tartan patterns during Autumn and Winter. I think these colder seasons can be a bit dull, colour wise, but these patterns really help to brighten up outfits. I particularly like the blue and yellow running through this scarf, it's a really nice touch. Primark had a huge selection of this lovely scarfs and I also picked up another with a lovely monochrome dogtooth pattern.
The go to look I've been wearing with this hugggeee scarf is jeans, a simple tee and a leather jacket, though I think it also looks great with some leggings and a chunky knit. Sometimes in Autumn simple and cosy is the best way to go, especially since the weather has gotten so cold! I think this Primark blanket scarf one of those essential Autumn/Winter items, that you need in your wardrobe, as it can be styled in so many ways with so many different outfits. I can't wait to style in a few different ways! What do you think of the blanket scarves?
