Oh So cover me with chic blanket

Since the beginning of the year, knitwear certainly made ascend on the scale of trends. Runaway announced comeback of it, from basics to lurex (think of Marni), items embroidered with sequins or knitted laces (think of Missoni)
It’s pretty handsome to see all of the 80’s sparkly, glamazon crave which often implies marvelous fur, while on the other side warm fall glance is more cozier, with more of neutral or warm colors including all of the goodies as tweed or woolen jackets and trousers, knitted vests and scarves. But if looking back in the time, there is no way that 80’s style elides knitting. If you don’t remember just think how Marc Jacobs adorably connected both. With layers of fine knitted items, afraid for freezing is diminished. But with more of colder days, the hedonistic side of our hearts is growing so often chocolate or tea, movie or book and the blanket inside your private paradise(meaning warm) is preferable than strutting on the streets.
Oh how we love blankets.
Who was the person that left the warm inside wrapped in the blanket, we don’t know. Maybe someone greedy for productivity and too cold, but she/he did the fashion forward for blankets as outwear. Since then we realized that outwear with blanket lookalike makes us balmy in our hearts even on the streets. That is why we are saying; Oh so cover me!
For knitted outwear, capes, wide scarves in-blanket –glance, oversized is essential.
Pattern or color to choose is matter of personal style. If you are more common with bohemian you’ll choose isle or DIY patterns. Overlay it over basic clothing, cotton dresses, knitted tunic tops on tights or jeans. It matches perfectly with canvas. But also with heels.
WHERE TO BUY: There is very possibility that your grandma has it in closet or visit nearest vintage shop.
