A blanket belt is just a relatively small, light blanket that can be wound around the waist and tied up without looking clunky. It's a great accessory if you like stuff such as clunky or thick belts and you want to change it up. A brooch can be put over the knot in order to top the quilt off and make it look a bit fancier if you've picked something raggedy looking. If you don't like the idea of a knot around your waist, you can simply go over under over, wrapping the blanket around your waist before taking one end and winding it around the other. Bonus, if you ever need to sit down or take a nap, you can just take the "belt" off.
