Fall Essentials: The Plaid Blanket Scarf

With temperatures dropping, it's definitely 'scarf and boots' weather now. I thought it would be fun to post a series of my Fall Essentials, starting with the Plaid Blanket Scarf. These over-sized scarves became popular last winter - with everyone trying to track down the infamous ZARA camel blanket scarf (posted about here). It's no surprise that Plaid Blanket Scarves continue to be popular this fall - the cheerful print combined with voluminous material make them ideal for keeping you warm and cozy in the colder months...what's not to love?

Although I missed out on the ZARA original, I was very happy to find this brightly-colored alternative at Forever21 last January. It's no longer available - but I've found a lot of VERY similar pieces at ASOS - see below!

    1. Good picks - the yellow & grey is such a pretty combo for #1, and #3 reminds me so much of the ZARA scarf.

  4. This outfit is SO FABULOUS. I think I have all of the pieces except for a scarf with that color scheme, so I'm sure you can guess what's going on my wishlist. :) It will have to wait awhile though since it's STILL too warm to wear a scarf here!

  7. I've never had a blanket scarf before, I can't believe yours is from F21, it looks so expensive, I must get one!! Looks fab on you especially with the navy blazer.

  10. You look great in that outfit! The jewel tone of the jacket along with the cool grey of the scarf is very becoming. -- aka @ari_Kostan

  12. This is a great alternative to the Zara scarf. I bought it last year and ended up returning it because it was impractical for living in CA. Now I wished I kept it.

    1. Good idea returning it if it wasn't going to get much use...scarves are definitely required where I live for at least 1/3rd of the year LOL!

  18. sooo fabulous! This is totally my fall combo - just add a blanket scarf! My IG feed is full of them right now, so you'd think I would have an aversion, but I just love mine so so much! Love how you styled yours! Perfect as always.
