Rad Or Bad: Would You Wear Gram’s Afghan Throw?

Okay. We get it. Winter is hell for being stylish. And while we were trying to figure out new ways of keeping fashionably warm last season, a few designers were also getting creative with what we can only describe as high-fashion Snuggies. We love our grandmother as much as Paul Smith does, and we have fond memories of cuddling up in her hand-knitted afghan throw, but we're not sure we want to hit the streets wearing it. Sure, they're warm, cozy, and intricately detailed, but do these looks deserve a spot in our closets or should they stay on our beds?
