Wrapping Up for Winter

Knitwear is something you can't really overlook in the cold winter months, and it is a really good idea to invest in some good quality pieces which will actually keep you warm and will also last you year after year. Blanket wraps have been a huge trend in recent years and they can really spice up an outfit, especially if you choose a bold colour such as red and layer it over monochrome, as I have styled this outfit. However, my personal favourite benefit of blanket wraps is that you can sit down and cosy up in them no matter where you are!

I was lucky enough to be sent a blanket wrap* made out of gorgeous cashmere and merino by Wool Overs to do a little write up on. As soon as I opened the package and felt the material I was blown away by how beautiful and soft it was. Although it is quite lightweight, it really does keep the heat in and I think it would be perfect to layer over a dress to a Christmas party, or even to wear around the house as an extra layer of warmth and a convenient blanket whenever you need one. If it's an extra cold day, I've found they act as a fantastic chunky scarf when you need to wear a coat, and then when you get inside you can wear them as usual!

I styled my own blanket wrap with a striped tee from Zara, coated Jamie jeans from Topshop and the most gorgeous lace up pointed ballet pumps which I bought recently from Topshop. I also added a coat of red lipstick to make the red of the wrap pop even more. This outfit could easily transition from day to night, as it is a perfect mix between smart and casual.

I absolutely love the blanket wrap trend and think this specific one is a fantastic investment and worth the money for the amazing quality you get. They effortlessly add an extra little something to an outfit and make you look super cosy - I've noticed many more people try to hug me when I'm wearing one!
