According to Vogue, The Blanket is the Hottest Fashion Accessory of 2020. And why not? It is the most practical item to make a trend this year as we need it to continue safely and warmly enjoy the beautiful fall patios of all the local businesses in the city.
Here is our top picks for blankets and where you can find them.
Like a Birkin For your Bed: The Hermes Blanket: $1700
The hottest statement blanket this season is the Hermes Avalon Blanket. With its hefty price tag, it is like a “Birkin for your Bed” according to Elle Magazine. We love this blanket as it is compact enough to carry or wear, and as seen below through the #hermesblanketchallenge found on Instagram and TikTok, adding some key pieces like a statement can take this item from blanket to fashion.
Hermes makes some of the most beautiful blankets ever seen. This one will set you back a cool $ 1700. However, if you like the look but want a more affordable option, get this great dupe off of Amazon. ( Soft Blanket with H Pattern )
