How to Style Blanket Scarfs for Winter

One trend I’ve been absolutely loving this season is blanket scarves. They are soft, feminine and the perfect touch to any simple outfit, all while still functioning as a blanket (I’m sold!) As winter is approaching, blanket scarves will become a staple in my closet. I love how I’m able to toss them over my shoulders as a shawl, drape around my neck as a scarf. And probably my favorite way to wear them as a blanket on a long flight or car ride. This is a must have for travel and the upcoming holidays! Plus it makes for a great gift and/or stocking stuffer. So I’ve decided to share my tips with y’all on styling these incredible scarves.

1. Simple Sweaters

Because blanket scarves are so large, they are definitely a statement piece, in my opinion, so I always try to make sure my top isn’t busy and doesn’t have details that compete with my scarf. Picking a simple V-neck sweater, or soft long sleeved tee, is the perfect way to keep your scarf the statement to your outfit!

2. Mix it up with Pants

Although, plain black or blue jeans would look great with any outfit, mix it up by wearing solid colors with small details such as ruching on the knee, a pair of faux leather leggings or even a simple skirt!

3. Timeless Jewelry

When it comes to what earrings to wear, go for a simple pair of studs, such as pearl earrings or a diamonds. If you’re feeling like something a bit more unique, try a pair of staple earrings like these from Wind Blown, or opt for no earrings at all! Skip the necklace for this outfit, and toss on some timeless cuffs or a leather watch.

4. A Pair of Booties

A chunky heel is the perfect finish to this look, whether that be a cute pair of brown booties, or those over the knee boots you’ve been dying to wear, they are perfect for this look!


Ruched Jeans, Staple Earrings

So what do y’all think about this look! Do you have any go to blanket scarves I should know about? What are your favorite ways to style blanket scarves? I’d love to hear from y’all in the comments, and thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Found the cutest black sweater and it's on sale! This morning I went to Church with a good friend and got brunch afterwards! I'm about to go take some blog photos and then hopefully do some meal prep for the week! I love meal prepping because it helps me have quick options to snack on and makes me more likely to eat in rather than be tempted to go out. Especially during Whole30 meal prep has been a life saver! What do you do on Sunday's to make your week easier? (Ps: remember you can now shop my Instagram on the blog!)
  • The cutest sweatshirt dress under $35!! Y'all today I finally finished (well almost) the new blog! After being tired of the way my blog looked I decided to give it a makeover! Now you can shop my Instagram including this dress! So go take a look, and tell me what y'all think!
  • Hands up for snow days!! Yesterday we got almost a foot of snow which is incredibly unusual for Raleigh! I've been curled up on the couch by our fireplace, watching Hulu and working on the blog! I need a good show to binge on Netflix or Hulu, what's your favorite? (Also the blog may or may not be getting a major facelift!)
  • I feel like I haven't gotten to introduce myself, I'm Sasha! I love Jesus and sharing the gospel. I really want to like reading but I don't unless I'm at the beach with a mojito, or reading my bible with a highlighter and pen. I love breakfast, and poached eggs are my go to at brunch! But my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I probably change my order about five times because I'm so indecisive. I'm a perfectionist at heart, I try to do everything and I mean everything (high school, jewelry business, blog, youth group three times a week, and a job) until I'm exhausted. I love learning unless it's physics, then I'm just confused. But I love math and solving problems. I am constantly trying to prove myself to myself, and make it a game to see how much I can accomplish in a day. I am a creature of habit, I go to the same coffee shop at least three times a week and I've made friends with all the baristas lol. I'm an introverted extrovert and love talking (a lot)! I love traveling and dream of moving somewhere like London or New York. Oh and I'm a twin (it's so much fun)! Ps: this outfit is all linked in today's blog post, so go give it a read!
  • Finally got a pair of leopard loafers and I'm obsessed! They're so comfy and look amazing! Tomorrow we're supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow, it may not sound like much, but for NC that means school will be canceled for a few days! Super excited to curl up on the couch, watch KUWTK and drink some hot chocolate!😆 What are your favorite things to do on snow days?
  • Yesterday I did the first part of my driving for drivers ed, luckily he only had to use his brakes a couple of times🙈 Not sure how I feel about driving yet but I have another class later today. Do you guys like driving, or would you rather have your friend drive?
  • Happy Friday Eve! I'm so excited about the long weekend ahead! This week was my first full week back at school and it's been pretty hard adjusting back from having so much free time. But I'm also kinda loving it because I'm sort of in my element when I have a bunch of stuff to do, all about the #hustle lol! I wanted to share a few thoughts on our identity. So last week I applied to a style company for a space in their influencer community. And today I saw an email in my inbox and my stomach dropped to the floor. I had a hunch when I applied that I didn't have a very high chance to get in, but thought what's the worst thing that can happen, they say no and I move on and try again later down the road. But for some reason all afternoon there's been a weight on my chest and a voice in my head saying I'm not good enough! And holy moly, that's so far from the truth. You see our identity is in Jesus, who says we are enough! And at times it can be hard to remember when things you had such high hopes for fall through. I keep reminding myself of Genesis 1:27 and Isaiah 25:1. It's so easy to lose sight of what God has planned for your life by little moments that take away your attention from the big picture. Whatever challenge, rejection, or pain you're facing, Jesus is so much bigger than it and so is his plan for you! (Ps: this sweater is on major sale, linked on the blog)
  • Currently dreaming of being somewhere warm. I feel like once January roles around I'm done with winter and ready for spring dresses and cute sandals (anyone else?) But until then this fur vest is great to stay cozy in the winter weather! My favorite way to style it is, with a pair of jeans, riding boots, a white sweater and gold hoops!
  • I think I'm pretty late on the otk boot trend, but since I've got these I've been wearing them everywhere! These were the only shoes I wore on my trip to Paris and they were surprisingly comfortable for walking around Paris all day. I'm currently lusting over the Stuart Weitzman pair, but if you're not wanting to splurge these are the perfect option!
