A/W 2015/16 Trends: The Blanket Wrap

Blanket Wrap

What could more practical and comfy than a blanket wrap for AW15? Ever since Cara Delevingne wore that blanket down the Burberry AW14 catwalk, this is one trend we are happy to see again come winter 2015. I personally am a little bit obsessed with the warmth, comfort and style the blanket wrap provides. What is not to love about this new blanket trend?  Other than being extremely easy to wear, one thing I feel the need to point out is that the cape must not be mistaken with its distant cousin, the oversized scarf. Sure, those feel amazing too when the chilly air hits but the blanket wrap offers so much more versatility and a variety of shapes, styles, colours and even fabrics!

Inspired by the traditional South American poncho, the blanket wrap is a key piece in this season’s play with layering and, being pear shaped myself, with giving my body the proportion it needs. Styling these is easy; the trick is to keep the rest of your outfit modern with plain neutral colours and use the blanket as your base. You can layer shamelessly to keep warm, rock it with a nice pair of boots, and add a fedora if you are feeling adventurous. Just drape it over your shoulders for a stylish and modern look, that is also cosy and comfy.

Camel Fedora Hat: Matalan (here) // Leather Backpack: ASOS (similar here)

Eyeshadow: Maybelline Metallic Pomegranate (here) // Lipstick: Maybelline Honey Beige (here)
I pulled the colours of my look together with the blanket wrap as the base, along with the comfiest pair of burgundy ankle boots I now own (thanks to Clarks and Samio), black jeans and my gorgeous camel fedora, for a look that is sassy and polished!

I know this trend is anything but new; the poncho/cape/wrap (whatever you wanna call it) has been around for 10 years or so but this year it has definitely caught my eye. They are the perfect (and painless) transition from couch style to chic ready. Yes they can make you look a little slouchy if you aren't in heeled shoes, but there’s something very chic and nonchalant about this style and what can I say, I am in love! Especially for the price I paid on mine (£10, say whaaat!).

Will you be wearing the blanket wrap this winter too? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties!

  6. I saw the blanket wrap in Primark and thought it looked really cool, but I wasn`t sure it will suit me. But I have a pear shape as well and seeing how great it looks on you, I really want to get one now.

  16. Great blanket scarf/wrap. I love the aztec/western pattern. Not to mention, I'm so happy someone got the name right. So many people are referring to the over-sized piece as a cape which is completely wrong.

  38. I did get a blanket wrap confused with an oversized scarf and purchased that instead but I still love it. Need to get a blanket wrap now. And you're right, they have been around for ages. I used to have a poncho a few years ago, but got rid of it. Now I wish I never did.
    I love the pattern of this wrap. You've styled it well with the colours you're wearing.
