I love these variations of the shawl/wrap! Definitely one of the most versatile staples for the Fall/Winter season! My favorites are probably the Haider Ackermann and the McQueen ones, but I adore all the different colorful styles as well. If only I could have them all...

Hope you're having a fab week so far!

Erika said...

Congratulations to Cris and Aubrey!

Ooh, I have been eyeing Victoria's Secrets' The Soft and Sexy Sweater Wrap for ages now. I want it in every color. The fact that it can be worn in so many different ways is unbeatable! :)

Love this cozy look for fall-so sad that the best and most oversized do not work on little chicks.

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Love the 'Marc by Marc Jacobs parker tartan wrap coat'.
And the Ralph Laurens very nice, very Aristo meets 'Oliver' (as in the Charles Dickens orphan).

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I love this post! It is so unique. I had no idea how often blankets are used in editorials or even substituted as shawls or outer wear. So fab!
(Now I don't feel silly about bringing a blanket to movie theaters. It's in fashion! Hehe).

Zepequeña said...

Amazing photos and looks!

Zepequeña.

Legallyblondemel said...

Such an elegant look; happy to see this come back in.

I like all of these, but that French Connection dress is my favorite. On-trend, fun, and flattering is a difficult style trifecta to achieve, but there it is.

OceanDreams said...

I want to be blanketed CC! I love the grey one and the rainbow one, you are making me really to want fall time to arrive! It take a bit longer here in Southern CA. Hope you are having a good week!

Laura Trevey said...

Britty said...

insideratbjornborg said...

i love the wrap coat!

and congrats to the winners, so so lucky!

La Belette Rouge said...

I have been working the blanket statement for years. I have a down number in a queen size. I have a pink acrylic throw that I like to wear as a Moses style robe and I have a chenille throw with fringe that I wear in the evenings.;-)
But seriously, what is not to love. Clothes that make one look chic and allow for comfort are the best of both worlds.

Carrie said...

My favourite is the blanket jacket by Haider Ackerman!!! I really like this look. Makes me want to run out in stores to buy something like it but it's spring here in Australia so I'd look a little silly wrapped up in a blanket jacket.

Nubia said...

What a great variety. These are stunning.

Congrats to the winners!

Zakuro Yugo said...

Blanket Cape is really impressive fashion item for me.
Hiding inside means sensual, in a way.
