The Blanket Wrap

My favorite thing about fall/winter fashion (ok, besides the layering, coats, and boots) is the warm and cozy knits.  I am a sucker for an oversized cardigan or sweater dress, so you can understand why one of my favorite trends of the moment is the blanket wrap, a cardigan/cape/shawl fusion.  It literally looks like you've wrapped up in a small blanket, but with artful draping and sleeves.  The wrap is a chic replacement to cardigans and jackets.  I am craving a printed one--something bold and geometric.

The inspiration:

Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2010, Comme des Garcons Fall 2009, Lindsey Thornburg Fall 2010, Chloe Fall 2009

My favorites:

Anthropologie jacquard wrap, $148                                                          Anthropologie argyle wrap, $118

 ASOS sweater, $72.41                                                                     Dolce Vita sweater, $220

These are more cardigan-like in shape:

Sparrow sweater, $148                                         Eternal Sunshine Creations cardigan, $319
