4 Fresh Looks to Try with Your Blanket Wrap

The blanket wrap has overtaken the fur scarf or even the chunky circle scarf in terms of popularity this season. Let’s blame it on Burberry and the slew of fashionistas trying to emulate the looks from their fall/winter campaign, whether it’s with the use of the label’s famous tapestry-inspired throws or more affordable alternatives from mass market brands.

For the gals looking for fresh ideas on how to wear this season’s famous blanket wrap, we scoured the web for inspiration and were lucky enough to come across these looks from four very stylish bloggers.

Look # 1: Layer it with a scarf

Wear a solid blanket wrap over a checkered wool scarf, a mini dress, and suede thigh-high boots. This is a cue we’re taking from famous blogger, Leonie of Ohh Couture.

Keep your look color coordinated and if possible, stick with tones that complement. Deep reds, purples, grays, or blues work best. However, feel free to use lighter tones as well, like the khaki-and-gray mix we’ve included below.

Look # 2: Layer it with a coat

Wear a patterned blanket wrap over an oversized coat. Use cropped track pants, a tee, and a pair of sneakers to give your look a sporty spin. As much as possible, keep it monochromatic. And if you’re up to it, feel free to pick light hues. This outfit idea is straight from Russian blogger, Victorina Platina.

Look # 3: Mix with patterns (and maybe some add-ons)

Play with patterns by layering your patterned wrap or cape with an equally patterned scarf. Feel free to go with wraps furnished with details like fur trimming for added drama. Keep your base classic and simple (black tights, boots, etc.), and always keep it monochromatic. This is a cue  we’re taking from UK blogger, Frances Coyne.

Look #4: Mix with textures

You can also give your patterned blanket wrap a different spin by mixing it with other textures like a sequined dress, a leather skirt, or a ribbed-knit sweater. Check out the two looks put together by Portugese blogger, Barbara Marques of My Kind of Joy.

Remember that in order to pull off such a pairing, you need to use a classic coat or jacket to dress down the high-shine elements. Also, keep it monochromatic.
