Plaid Blanket Scarf

A plaid blanket scarf has become a cold-weather staple, especially for bloggers who pair them with a Starbucks coffee and boots in their Instagram photos. This option from Old Navy will have you acing the trend, and it comes in an assortment of colors. Plus, at less than $20 each, you can add a few options to your wardrobe. We love red and green for a casual holiday look (wear with a black sweater dress and tights), along with the sunshine yellow, which brightens any winter blues. ($15–$20, usually $23; oldnavy.com)

Oversized Blanket Scarf

Transform this oversized blanket scarf into a stylish kerchief by crossing two opposite corners behind your neck and bringing them back around front. This way of wearing the scarf looks even better when styled with a fleece vest, Sam Edelman boots, and long socks. It comes in four colors, but we like the red and black option for a sophisticated look that pairs with most neutrals. ($20; target.com)

Leopard-Print Blanket Scarf

Mix soft fabrics with sleek materials for an edgy outfit. This turtleneck sweater tucked into a faux-leather pencil skirt looks professional, and when you pair it with this leopard-print blanket scarf and a felt hat, it instantly becomes runway-ready. Tip: Drape the scarf over your shoulders and slip a belt over it to highlight your waist. ($40; nordstrom.com)

Cape Blanket Scarf

If you want to wear your blanket scarf like a shawl but don't want to fuss with excess fabric, we recommend this cape scarf. Featuring arm holes, you'll be able to rock the effortless look without worrying about the scarf slipping off your shoulders. It's also a great way to look trendy (and stay warm) at the office—especially when worn with a turtleneck, distressed jeans, and mules. ($55; madewell.com)
