3 Ways to Wear | Blanket Scarves



My favourite season is here! Autumn is the best time for fashion. I like to be able to layer up and wear a whole selection of my wardrobe at once! One of the biggest trends you'll see this year is the blanket scarf. Oversized, slouchy and extra wide, the blanket scarf is designed to be worn in several ways. It's multi-functional and when it's not wrapped around your neck it can be used to keep your knees warm or, I guess spread out on the ground for a picnic! Voucher Codes invited me to style up the blanket scarf on a budget and the following three looks are made up of high street brands, bought with discount codes or sale items. Which is your favourite?

TARTAN SCARF* - ASOS
LEATHER LOOK SKINNIES - NEW LOOK
BOOTS - NEW LOOK
GREY VEST - PRIMARK
LEATHER JACKET - PEACOCKS

These leather-look skinny jeans are incredible comfortable and stretchy. Swap them for your regular black skinnies to transform an outfit. I'm wearing this ASOS scarf wrapped loosely around my neck twice. It's so so soft and has camel-brown undertones which makes it a beautiful shade for autumn. Finish with a biker jacket or long midi-cardigan. Of course using discount found on Voucher Codes and my student discount to save money on New Look and ASOS online.

PASTEL TARTAN SCARF* - WAREHOUSE
WHITE BLAZER* - CELEB LOOK
JEANS - RIVER ISLAND
GOLD CONVERSE - SCHUH

I'm changing my overall colour palette for autumn with this pastel check/tartan scarf from Warehouse. It goes perfectly with my long boyfriend blazer and I'm keeping it casual with gold converse. I've looped this blanket scarf over one shoulder. This one is my favourite for transferring into a new season. 


PATTERNED BLANKET SCARF - H&M (old) (similar)
LEATHER PENCIL SKIRT - PRIMARK
CHELSEA BOOTS - H&M

This scarf is an old favourite, it's so huge I can wear it as a poncho or a scarf. I hang this one over my shoulders and pair it with slimmer fitting items such as this pencil skirt. As the weather turns cooler I'll be wearing this over a coat/jacket and adding a pair of tights. Will you be trying out the blanket scarf trend this season? I'm on the look out for a wear-with-anything poncho to layer up with these scarves. I like to go big and oversized on top and keep the rest of my outfit close fitting.

  3. Big blanket scarves are the best - perfect layer for festivals, when it gets unexpectedly cold at night! These looks are all lush, the ASOS scarf has such gorgeous colours!
