A blanket scarf is the rare item that works equally well in the office and in bed. Take this two-tone version that combines a classic plaid pattern with an elegant black wool for extra dimension. Worn here draped over a white shirt, it adds a cozy touch and plays off the equally tactile knit midi-skirt. Should you want the look at a lower price point, this Topshop version has a similar interplay of textures. Add a chic red lip and you have a deceptively simple yet pulled-together outfit that can work for both the weekdays and weekend.
