What I Wear Wednesday #7

The leaves are changing, which means your wardrobe should too. I am excited to start layering and wearing Fall colors. I do not welcome the cold, but I do welcome all the Fall clothes such as scarves, sweaters, boots, socks, and lots of layering.

I am FINALLY over the hump of the week on “Hump Day,” so I am throwing leaves in the air to celebrate completing two of my hardest midterms earlier today. As you may recall, last Wednesday, I was stressing about them and studying like crazy!

This Wednesday, I am super excited to talk about how to wear a blanket scarf, which is a Fall outfit staple.

I choose to wear my blanket scarf as a shawl, wrapping it around myself like a blanket. Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

If you choose to wear a blanket scarf as a shawl be sure to pick one that is very large and soft. This is a great way to add color and pattern to your outfit. Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

My primary reason for wearing my blanket scarf like this is because I am in denial of the cooler weather, so I am refusing to wear a jacket. Wearing the blanket scarf as a jacket substitute works out really well because in the morning it was really chilly, but by day time the shining sun warms me up outdoors. Today, I was able to easily drape the scarf off my body while walking outside in the warm sun.

Blanket scarves can be worn like a traditional scarf too. This is a usefyul style option when you don’t want to hang or lug the blanket scarf around you like a coat. Wearing a blanket scarf around your neck provides great warmth and  style.

Warning: blanket scarves may cause a lot of static, especially in the dry, cold weather. To help prevent static build up spray your scarf with static guard or hair spray. As this picture shows, my hair goes crazy. To reduce the static build up in my hair I actually run a dryer sheet through it! It may sound crazy, but it works. Try it!

I am always much happier once I get control of the static issue. Also, I love curling up in my blanket scarf. It’s a socially acceptable way to wear a blanket in public and be fashionable.

Blanket scarves are probably the most popular accessory people stock up on for Fall. However, an unlikely “accessory” is becoming more popular among designers this Fall. Can you guess what fun accessory you need to stock up on?

Yes, SOCKS! Alyssa Coscarelli  shares, “16 Reasons to Stock Up on Fall Socks” on Refinery29.

Although no one may see my fun socks, I know they’re underneath my boots. It is a special detail, that can make all the difference. Plus, like most good fashion it is unexpected and unique. I think you can tell a lot about a person from their socks. What do you think? Mine probably reveal I LOVE coffee.
