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.
In case you’re still unsure about this blanket-scarf hybrid, allow us to show you five styles that are so chic you’ll forget all about the cold — OK, maybe not. But you’ll at least look good!
