Autumn/Winter 2014 Mini Trend: Blanket Scarves

This year is the year that I can be truly happy. I don’t know about you guys, but I have been wanting to go out in public in a blanket for some time. There have been so many cinema trips, train journeys and general outdoor pursuits that could have been vastly improved if I had only had a blanket with me. And this year, I can actually do this without being horrifically judged and/or mistaken for a tramp. And sweet Lord, it is good.

I can say without hesitating that blanket scarves are going to change my life. Not only do they look really, really adorbs but they also look incredibly comfy. In fact, just last night I was having a lovely chat on Twitter about how they are possibly going to make this winter the cosiest time in the entire world. So, while I am desperately waiting for winter to arrive (piss off Indian summer), I’ve put together a little wish list of blanket scarves that I need to get in my life. Pronto.

New Look seems to be the place to go for blanket capes this autumn/winter! They have such beautiful prints and capes, and I really think they are upping their game on the jacket/coat front this year. They’re not too pricey either, around the £20 mark, so won’t break the bank. I was going to try and pick my favourite, but I LOVE THEM ALL.

Happy blanketing!

Which are your favourites? Are you going to be rocking the blanket cape this autumn/winter?

    This trend was made for me! Finally I can walk around in my blanket with pride. I’m ordering one now.

    Now I just need some shearling lined converse so I feel like I’m wearing my slippers….
