I need to show some love to blanket scarves because they are a total essential for anyone living in a cold climate five months out of the year. I hopped on the trend last winter and added this tan/khaki one to my wardrobe I found in the H&M sales (which are always too good to pass up). This one in particular is hella long (as seen here) and then I realized how to stylishly wrap it around me and boom--my outfit looks super cool and I'm warm.

My favorite part about them and the real reason you need one this winter? They double up as a fashion statement and a literal blanket. When I get chilly at work or at a friend's, I'm covered! OH, and they can also be a great prop in photos, like in this post. What more of a reason do you need to have one in your wardrobe now?? I listed some of my favorites down below, especially the coveted black grid print one that seems to be so hard to find now. Well, I found one for ya :)
