Blanket scarves are the best winter fashion accessory money can buy

Some winter days you just want to stay bundled up, all cozy in your bed. However, most of us don't have the luxury of doing that. For those blustery days when you simply don't want to leave the covers, enter the blarf.

A blarf, more commonly known as a blanket scarf, is an oversized scarf designed to combine style and function. The wrap is larger than a normal scarf and can be even worn as a cape if desired. Its comfy design is meant to keep you extra bundled up — hence the blanket reference.
