Scarf season is here, guys! Gone are the days of sweating if you wear a crewneck t-shirt, because it’s finally chilly and appropriate to wear the greatest accessory known to man. With so many scarves to choose from, it’s difficult to know where to begin. While your initial instinct is probably to go for a standard, fringe-ended one, or maybe even a circle scarf, let me offer your another suggestions: Blanket scarves.
You really can’t go wrong with a blanket scarf, because really, who doesn’t want to walk around wearing a couch throw where they go. They’re warm, cozy and just take oversized clothing to a whole new wonderful level. Take a look at some of my favorite ones:
I love bold prints and colors on oversized pieces. Don’t get me wrong—I love me a good oversized black sweater, but sometimes monochrome can get a little overwhelming, you know?
So, this is my dream scarf because it’s neutral and ombre and just everything I love about fall clothes. Plus, it goes with everything.
This is the standard plaid scarf you’ll see in pretty much every store over the next few months, but hey, who said “standard” means “bad”?
I like how clean and simple this one is, and the fact that it kind of looks like a baby blanket and is probably ridiculously snuggly. They’re on sale right now at American Eagle, too, so snap one up while you can!
I’m still not entirely certain that this isn’t just an actual blanket that someone at Target threw on a mannequin and was all, “Eh, no one needs to know.”
Patchwork is always a fun pattern for fall.
Like I said before, you’ll be seeing plaid everywhere this season. I like this one because it deviates from the traditional tartan color scheme.
It kind of looks like the first scarf you ever tried to knit for yourself if you actually had any knitting talent, right?
This is my favorite color for fall and winter. I have a circle scarf and a beanie in this shade, and now I might just have to add a blanket scarf to that list. You know, just to keep up with the times.
No, I don’t know how the name of this scarf even remotely applies, but the geometric pattern is so funky that I don’t even really care.
Everyone needs at least one knit scarf for winter. I’m relatively certain that that’s in the Constitution somewhere.
This reminds me of the printed carpets they have in elementary school classrooms in the best possible way.
And, if you don’t want to go for plaid this fall, try out some stripes. They’re just as fun, and this scarf is just as cozy.
