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.
