How To Wear A Blanket Scarf – The Basics

One of the simplest answers on how to wear a blanket scarf is to tie it around your neck like you would with a smaller scarf. Put the scarf behind your neck while keeping one end longer. Then loop the long side around your neck and finish by pulling the long side through the loop. This look can go with many outfits but we suggest you to keep the rest of your clothing sleek and trim fitting. Blanket scarves are loose so you don’t want to have too much clothing draping off of your body.
