I love blanket scarves. They were not something that I owned in high school, a combination of the fact that they weren’t as trendy but then and that I wasn’t as desperate for warmth and coziness (I was in California). I think the blanket scarves have marketed so well this last season because they have a comfortable, carefree, and cozy vibe. They ooze style and utility at the same time. For me, I gravitate towards them because I can wear the scarf around my neck as I walk in the frigid Boston cold, and then wear it around my body as a blanket wrap when I’m holed up in Lamont working on a paper. It’s like a portable safety blanket, and who doesn’t want that!
