One of this season’s hottest trends, the blanket scarf, is a fashion piece that works double-time. Wear it around your neck for a comfy-cozy look, or open it up and use it as a blanket when you catch a case of the winter chills. Many stores are creating their own signature patterns and colours, and some of my favourites can be found at American Eagle/Aerie. Shown above (from left to right) are “Holiday Red”, “Buff” (I purchased this one), and “Royal Navy”. These scarves are 100% acrylic, super-soft, and are extremely billowy and voluminous: they measure 59 X 59 inches! You can purchase these online (however they sell out fast!), or in-store (I’ve seen them in quite a few) from American Eagle or Aerie on sale for around $25.00. Pair one of these with a cute mug and some cozy socks, and you’ve got the perfect gift!
