They're the perfect travel companion and do double-duty trapping heat and adding style to your everyday wardrobe. Whether you love soft-to-the-skin cashmere scarves, bold plaid patterns, or gravitate towards the season's puffy trend with padded numbers, we've rounded up the best blanket scarves out there. Scroll on for our favorite cozy, covetable options.

Swap your sweater sets for a chunky scarf that you can match to your cable knits. Equal parts luxe and cozy, you may even get away with wearing your heavy knits in place of traditional outerwear.
