How to Style the Blanket Scarf

The Bonfire Blanket Scarf is a must-have this season and our two newest colors are exactly what you’ve been waiting for! Jacy from Love, Lenore adds a pop of color to her look with our yellow Softest Bonfire Sweater.

How to Style the Blanket Scarf

“Aerie has been one of my favorite brands since college because of their ultra-soft fabrics, attainable price points, and message of true beauty and acceptance. The Bonfire Sweater and Blanket Scarf are now two of the softest and coziest pieces in my closet!”

How to Style the Blanket Scarf

“I wear mostly neutrals, so this beautiful mustard color is the perfect pop of color for fall. I love the slightly oversized cut because it’s flattering with jeans, but also comfy enough to lounge in at home. I must admit that I own a pretty big collection of scarves, but this blanket scarf is by far the softest I own. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day, and I love that it’s big enough to wrap up in on chilly fall evenings.”
