Why you need a blarf

My friend hates this word. “Blarf.” But I haven’t found a better way to describe the giant, square scarf that doubles as a blanket.

I got my first blanket scarf in my Fall 2016 FabFitFun box and it quickly became one of my favorite pieces. It’s black and white plaid from Modcloth and as cozy as it is versatile.

Ways to wear:

1. Drape – Fold it in half and drape it over your shoulders. Perfect for fall days when the sun is still peaking through and providing warmth. (see below)

2. Cape – For a chic, French look, fold it in half and wrap it around your body so the fold is directly over one arm while standing at your side. Then, secure it with a brooch on top of the other shoulder. (see below)

3. Bandana – This is simple, quick, and one of the most common ways to wear a blanket scarf. Fold it into a triangle, wrap it around your neck with the point facing down your front side, then pull the ends back to the front. (see below)

These are just three ways to wear a blanket scarf but there are many more! Including, as a legit blanket at the movie theater, over your head when it starts raining on your way to the bus stop, and tied around your purse when you walk inside a warm building from the outside cold.
