During the winter months in Boston it becomes more and more unbearable to get out of bed and walk to class each morning. Finding accessories and shoes to turn casual into fashionable is a must this season. This Fashionista found the perfect way to transform cozy into chic using one of the hottest accessories of the season: a blanket scarf.

Blanket scarves are more versatile than your average scarves. They can be dressed down with a pair of your favorite sneakers and jeans, or dressed up when it is worn as a shawl or poncho. This Fashionsta chose to take the casual route for her Sunday stroll in Boston.  Going to college in the city means comfortable shoes are a necessity. These sneakers, like the blanket scarf, are a perfect combination of comfort and style. The snakeskin texture is eye-catching, regardless of the fact that they are a neutral color.  Both the blanket scarf and the sneakers are the key components of this outfit, turning the basic T-shirt and jeans look into a fashionable one.

How To: Treat yourself to a blanket scarf this season and throw it on with your favorite sweater and pair of jeans. This Fashionista paired her plaid Zara blanket scarf with a cozy white cotton top, a pair of light washed skinny jeans and snakeskin Reebok sneakers.  To tie it all together she wore her Ray-Ban sunglasses, carried a large tote bag and added some simple yet elegant arm candy. This look is simple, comfortable and chic!
