Daily Covet: The Blanket Coat

You know you’ve seen them everywhere… I mean everywhere. And it’s occurred to me that it’s crazy these haven’t been a fashion staple since the beginning of time.

They are amazingly warm, comfortable and hide all your problem areas without looking frumpy. But how do you wear a fab blanket coat/shawl/cape without it looking like a Snuggie from the late-night infomercials?

How about like this? When paired with leather(ish) leggings and high-heeled boots, what could look all Catholic-school girly is now super chic and adds great proportion – which makes your legs look longer and leaner!

Or get your cozy on for a morning commute when paired with gray flannel slacks and matching shooties. A blanket coat is all you’ll need for color and warmth. Just give this ensemble some extra shape by belting it high on your waist – again making your legs look longer!

Want your blanket coat to perform exactly as it was made to? Pair it with a creamy cable-knit sweater, some distressed boyfriend jeans and some equally cozy boots for a laid-back weekend look that will make you look super put-together in a this-is-how-I-look-with-no-effort kind of look.

How about you – do you love or detest the blanket coat? What’s your favorite way to wear it?
