Hi Friends, Makeup Artist Katie here...

There's just something so cool about wearing an oversized blanket style scarf (or shawl)🧣

The abundance of fabric feels super luxurious, and there's an element of "what, this old blanket…?" that gives off an effortless vibe!

I've got a top tip on how to wear your blanket-style scarf to ooze major style appeal ✨

Rectangle vs. square scarves

I've found it's a lot easier to style scarves that are slightly more rectangular than square in shape.

My top tip is to find a scarf that's at least the length of your wingspan.

Extra tips to help

  • For the best results, choose a large shawl

  • Gently puff the scarf out just over the belt to give movement – this trick also gives the illusion of a slimmer waist

  • Have fun experimenting where to best place the belt on your waist to create your most flattering look

  • Try this look over a blouse to add warmth or over your coat to change-up your look!

My favourite places to find large shawl scarves are charity and vintage shops, for a really unique one-of-a-kind look! 🧣
