10 Gorgeous Travel Scarves and Wraps That Double as Airplane Blankets

Why oh why is the temperature of every airplane cabin set somewhere between meat locker and Arctic Circle? The scientific answer: fuselage + altitude = brrr! Luckily, there’s an easy way to combat the airplane’s built-in chill factor. Just wrap up in one of the ridiculously warm scarves or wraps below. They’re big enough that they can double as airplane blankets, but chic enough that you’ll arrive at the gate in style. As a bonus, these items make excellent gifts for that frequent flyer on your holiday list.

1. Halogen Cashmere Scarf

When you need full coverage, this lightweight wrap does not mess around. Not only is it made from 100 percent cashmere, offering maximum plushness, but the knit drapes all the way down to your lap in the front and down to your knees in the back. Despite all that fabric, it can still be rolled up into a scarf — perfect when you’re deplaning.

2. Burberry Giant Check Print Scarf

For the oh-so-fancy Anglophile, this Burberry wool and silk scarf in the brand’s iconic check print offers a preppy way to bundle up. Yes the price tag, edging close to $400, may elicit a groan, but it’ll broadcast first-class vibes even when you’re wedged into coach.

3. Free People Valley Plaid Scarf

This plaid scarf with fringe detailing offers a trendy, youthful way to tackle chilly spaces. It’s big enough to blanket your upper body, and comes in three different colors, from dark to light, whether you’re looking for a winter or spring style.

4. Free People Whisper Fringe Blanket Scarf

As the name suggests, this scarf seriously delivers in the plushness department, especially when it comes to its extra-long fringe. Wound around your neck, the acrylic accessory is so soft that it could practically take the place of a neck pillow.

5. Halogen Cashmere Wrap

The name says it all. Here’s a glamorous wrap that’s also an absolute workhorse, delivering serious warmth (read: 100 percent cashmere) and loads of coverage (read: six feet in length). The oatmeal and gray charcoal colors can top off any outfit and the knit never gets rumpled, letting you arrive in style.

6. Madewell Small Buffalo Plaid Cape Scarf

Technically a cape, this cover-up ranks high on the bundle-up factor, thanks to its cozy cotton-acrylic blend. And while it can be worn draping your torso (arm cutouts help it lay flat against the body), this piece can also be looped up into a scarf. Plus, the plaid color works in all seasons — helpful for those summer trips when you’re shivering in your Bermuda shorts.
