Picture of 8 Ways to Wear Your Favourite Shawl/scarf

Hello everyone! I’m back with my new, favourite shawl (the knitted Sunday Market Shawl) and the 8 different ways to wear it! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the same shawl, because I’m sure you have a big scarf or old shawl waiting for you in a corner of your closet.

Let’s explore the 8 looks together! Use this figure and other photos to guide yourselves! 

Step 1: All 8 Looks

Step 2: Look 1

Wrap the length of the shawl around your body and tuck in the ends. Secure and cinch your waist with a belt.

Step 3: Look 2

Tie ends A and B together. Tie ends C and D together. Put your hands through the 2 small loops created from the tied ends. Wear it as a baggy cardigan with the body of the shawl resting on your shoulders.

Step 4: Look 3

Tie ends A and D together. Hang the shawl on your neck, with the knot positioned behind the neck.

Step 5: Look 4

1. Position shawl
2. Bring the top ends of the shawl to the centre of your chest and cross them
3. Twist the ends
4. Tie a knot and secure by tucking it in

Step 6: Look 5

Create Look 3. Then tie ends B and C together in front of you. Move the new knot to your back. A nice keyhole will be formed at the back.

Step 7: Look 6

1. Position the shawl on your shoulders
2. Hold on to the 2 ends in front of you
3. Tie the 2 ends together at your back
4. This is how it looks behind

Step 8: Look 7

Just wind the shawl around your neck haphazardly to create a natural drape.

If all else fails, just let the shawl hang on your shoulders.

What excites me is men's styling catching up with the women's fashion almost in every sphere. Men have adopted scarf in much better what then women and creating dapper look. Don't you believe me? Here you can see it

Yay, I got a shawl for Christmas and I have never ever had something like this before so your post here is fantastic. Really cool ideas, thanks.

I love it! I have so many shawls/scarves like this and I can never figure out how to wear them. I knew I could tie them in a variety of ways, but I didn't think of these- Thanks so much for posting this!

Well, I definitely know what I'm wearing tomorrow. :D

Nice! Might want to stick with the A, B, C, D, labels all through the guide or just drop them. Other than that, clear, detailed, and well arranged.

thank you for your feedback! i'll bear that in mind in the future :)
