This winter, the theme for fashion is “go big or go home.” Scarves, especially, will be bigger and bolder this year. Oversized scarves, also called blanket scarves, have consistently become larger each winter. As winters have become colder and lasted a bit longer, it makes sense to wear winter scarves that you can almost wrap yourself in like a blanket. Here are several of our favorite oversized scarves to rock this winter.
This gorgeous and soft scarf is by Loro Piana. The tonal blanket scarf is made of soft wool and imported from Italy. It is perfectly oversized, measuring 200 inches long and 150 inches wide. Oversized scarves like this one will keep you luxuriously warm and cozy all winter. The Loro Piana wool blanket scarf sells at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,900.
This chunky blanket scarf from Calvin Klein features the line’s red bouclé “205W39NYC” lettering. The black and white wool scarf is made in Italy of 100% wool. This chunky Calvin Klein blanket scarf is 88 inches long and 28 inches wide. The cocoon-like shape envelopes the wearer in what Barneys New York calls “a nod to this season’s theme of self-protection.” Purchase this bold oversized blanket scarf for $1,900 and add it to your collection of winter scarves.
