Fashionably Late – Blanket Scarf Trend

Yellow blanket scarf ModCloth dress

Alright, so I am a bit late to the blanket scarf trend…I think about two years late, actually. Are blanket scarves even trendy anymore? Probably not. Haha. But I’ve always been hesitant to invest in anything trendy and am usually the last blogger to jump on board. But this is one trend I was really missing out on! (And will continue to wear whether it’s “cool” or not!)

While I was home for the holidays in Wisconsin, my mom let me borrow her blanket scarf. And boy, I’m sure glad she did! It was well below zero degrees Fahrenheit the first couple days we were home…but the blanket scarf was, well, like being wrapped in a big, warm blanket! So warm and cozy. And it matched my new dress perfectly, as well as my glasses.

And I don’t tend to wear my glasses on the blog too often. This is because 1.) I’m used to wearing them in the morning and just before I go to sleep…so, psychologically I never really feel quite “ready” to tackle the day when I have them on. (If that makes sense? Or maybe I’m just nuts?) 2.) They’re a bit tricky to photograph. (I hate when there’s a glare!) But, I broke them out for this post because my eyes hurt wayyyyy too bad after 24+ hours of trains, flying, airports and driving to pop my contacts in. It makes me tired just thinking about the journey from Sydney to Wisconsin! Haha. Oh, and I also wore them because they matched my mom’s lovely blanket scarf. 😉 (I miss being able to raid her closet!)

What do you guys think of blanket scarves? And are you hesitant to invest in trends? Or do you enjoy trying new things as they become available? Let me know in the comments!

    Love the yellow, so cheery for winter. I wear it too. I like that there is something matchy matchy about it but not too much so

      Thank you so much! 🙂

  2. Lindsey, you look gorgeous in these photos. I think you should totally wear canary yellow more often- the skirt looks gorgeous on you! And I do love blanket scarves, they are very practical and can elevate your outfit. You look really gorgeous today! Congrats!!:-)


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you so much, Miri! I just went on a bit of a canary yellow binge, haha. Thank you, again! 🙂

  3. This is the cutest outfit!… You look fantastic as always!!!

    You look really stylish in this scarf. I like all of these colors paired together. I think this blanket scarf is more of a closet staple look. I don’t think you are late to this trend because I think you can wear this winter after winter. It’s nice to wear blanket scarves to cover a low neck blouse in winter months. Your glasses are really cute. I had no idea you wore them regularly.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Joanna! And I’m glad you think it will be a closet staple as well. You’re much better at knowing these things than me. 🙂 And oh yes, I’m blind as a bat! Haha. I just usually have my contacts in when I’m taking photos for the blog. 🙂

    Blanket scarves forever, Lindsey! I call them socially acceptable (and fashionable) grown up blankies! Ha ha! I’ve got three myself, and I pretty much always make sure to take one when I’m going to the movies. And I just LOVE your glasses so much! The cat eyes and red are too amazing! I’d also wear my glasses more often, but I’m usually in not-gonna-run-today/rainy/gonna-go-to-sleep mode when I have my glasses on, so I feel not quite myself with them! 🙂

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Socially acceptable and fashionable grown up blankies! I love it! Haha. Aw, and thank you so much, Brittney! That’s exactly how I feel when I have my glasses on too. And there’s no way I’m exercising on a day I’m wearing them, haha. 😉

    I did notice the updated photo, Lindsey!! It’s fabulous!
    So what kind of fashion blogger am I? I don’t have a blanket scarf either—but I do think they are something that will be around every winter! How else do we keep warm?
    As for the glasses, I like the look! I wear mine everyday (and for most blog posts)! I’ve decided that many days they even do a great job of hiding the bags under my eyes!! Ha ha!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you, Jodie! And oh yes, you rock your glasses for the blog! Haha. And that is so true – I have HUGE bags under my eyes here, but you can’t see them as much with my glasses. Haha. 🙂

    Love the mustard shade!

      Thank you, Liv! 🙂

  8. Laurie Duncan says:

    Love the scarf and your glasses! If I see a trend that I know I will always like I don’t mind spending money on it. But if I’m not sure, then I buy a cheap version or not at all. 🙂

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Laurie! And that is a good plan! 🙂

  9. This is a pretty outfit, I love the yellow! It’s a colour we never see enough of. The snow is beautiful too!
