how to stye: blanket trend in 2 ways

Blankets are the new coats this FW14 and how can I skip this cozy trend? By any chance, you would like to take your home blanket( solid color/ patterns.. no cartoon characters please if you want to look posh) out for a spin, then this” how to style” post will inspire you to wear it in a stylish way! The first thing to have in mind is to style blanket trend as if you just threw on the blanket and rushed out the door. Accessories should be minimal since it’s best to avoid looking clumsy with a big blanket covering you. Lastly, I like my blanket to blend in with total look, in terms of colors and flow. I am wearing the same blanket and a pair of boots for the 2 looks.


Look 1 : Downtown Burgundy

Throw on your hat + blanket to downtown and show off this FW 14’s newest trend in town. Be ready to look and feel stylish while you walk along the street to do whatever! howtostylecape3

  • Styling Tips: Mix and match shirts with shorts to create a preppy yet comfortable vibe for your overall appearance. Here, I paired up an identical pattern top and bottom for a romper effect. You may also try monotones or shirt dresses to create a similar effect. Go for a pair of dark colored boots instead of black to lighten up the outfit.


Look 2: Blanket with an elegant twist

Let’s try to incorporate the blanket trend with an elegant twist! With the same pair of boots and blanket, we can create from downtown to upper east side!

Styling Tips: Try wearing your blanket in an asymmetrical method with a belt on the waist line to blend everything to a whole. Use a light metallic belt instead of dark belts to only gather one side of the blanket. Lastly, add a statement necklace that can bring out the elegance within you.
