When it gets cold, there are few things better than cozying up with a warm blanket by the fire or snuggling up with a loved one.  In fact, sometimes you’re so comfy you don’t even want to leave the house.  That’s where the blanket scarf comes in.

The blanket scarf is a major trend for fall and winter this year.  The scarf is typically the size of an actual blanket and composed of soft cotton fabric.   Being as over-sized and toasty as it is, this statement piece is the perfect addition to your cold weather wardrobe! Warm up at home and then add it to your outfit for an on-the-go fashionable way to stay cozy when you’re out and about.

There are several ways to wear this seasonal item.   The blanket scarf can add the perfect amount of color and pattern to a basic pea coat.  It also looks great thrown over your shoulders at the office, a dinner date or for exploring the city on a windy day.

Have I mentioned that you can actually use this scarf as a blanket?  The blanket scarf is perfect to wrap around yourself while outside by the fire for a weekend away camping.  Plus, when it starts to snow, you’ll be ready this year!  Gone are the days of carrying a big blanket around to those Sunday football games or being cold during hockey season.

The most popular pattern for this accessory is plaid. Earth-toned plaid patterns seem to be everywhere this year, but color combinations of red, green and cream aren’t far behind. If you want to be more bold, check out more of the tribal patterns or go classic with a solid color.

Lucky for us shoppers, this is an accessory that’s very affordable.  You can get your very own blanket scarf at Anthropologie in Montclair, N.J., located at 470 Bloomfield Avenue.
