How to Wear a Blanket Scarf | Top 4 Styles

Hey Beauties! 

If you have been reading La Belle Sirene for a while or even if you just saw last week’s Style Saturday then you will know that I am completely obsessed with my blanket scarf. I somehow find a way to add one to every outfit I put on and along the way I have figured out how to style it for every occasion so I thought I would share my top 4 with you. 

1. The Wrap (above) – This is probably my favourite and most often worn way because it is so easy and it is so cozy. For this style, I bring the fabric together in the middle to create one long scarf, place the centre at my chin and wrap the ends around to the front. Then I pull the pieces apart and voila! 

2. The Drape – A classic style that goes with anything and looks super cute with a cardigan. For this style, fold the scarf in half and simply drape it over your shoulders. 

3. The Tuck – This style is specifically for those brutally cold days when i need to be as bundled up as possible. For this style I take the end of the scarf (which has been folded in half) hold it at my shoulder and then wrap the rest of the scarf around twice and tuck the ends into the scarf. 

4. The Belted Cape – This is a new favourite that I only recently discovered but I have fallen in love with it. For this style I drape the scarf over my shoulders and pull apart the fabric to cover my entire chest then add a belt at the waist to hole everything in place and bring back a little shape. 

So those are my 4 favourite ways to wear my blanket scarf and if you want to see more of that scarf in action then check out these posts. ( 1. 2. 3. 4.)

Here are a few of my favourite scarves if you’re interested.

    I love a blanket scarf too! I tend to do the drape but have always wanted to try the belted cape style! It's usually too cold for just a cape or too hot for a massive scarf. Such a dilemma.Rachael at

    I never thought of doing a belted cape! I have a HUGE blanket scarf from Zara and I have no idea how to wear it. THANK YOU!
