One of the odder trends that has taken off in the past twelve months has been the craze for dressing up like a mermaid, so we couldn’t resist including this turquoise toweling wonder from New Look. If you know someone who you think might want to try the trend in the safety of her own home, this fishtail blanket is a great way to let her dip her toe, *ahem*, into the water.
