I'm considering this a trial run of the whole blanket coat phenomenon that went down during pre-fall.

It's official: Blanket coats are going to be the next big thing. They were all over the pre-fall 2014 collections, and a few lucky ladies have already taken Chloé's versions for a spin.

And while I do have a couple of Lindsey Thornburg cloaks in my closet that fit the bill, I've decided (for now) to approach this trend in a more subtle way, via the blanket scarf.

Twisted and draped nonchalantly over my boyfriend coat, this oversized striped number will make me look like I actually know what I'm doing when I get dressed in the morning. And then there's always the extra layer of warmth to consider, which is fine, but I'm more excited about the "possibly getting mistaken for a stylist" narrative.

Stripe blanket scarf, $64, available at Topshop.
