Let’s explore the 8 looks together! Use this figure and other photos to guide yourselves!
NOTE: Pardon that black suitcase in the background of the photos. It's my housemate's. (-_-X)
Look 1Wrap the length of the shawl around your body and tuck in the ends. Secure and cinch your waist with a belt.
Look 2Tie 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.
Look 3Tie ends A and D together. Hang the shawl on your neck, with the knot positioned behind the neck.
Look 41. 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
Look 5Create 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.
Look 61. 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
Look 7Just wind the shawl around your neck haphazardly to create a natural drape.
Look 8If all else fails, just let the shawl hang on your shoulders.
Isn’t that easy? I hope the pictures make the instructions easier to follow. I’m sure some of you definitely know of more ways to wear a simple shawl like this. These are just the 8 ways that I thought of at the point of the photo-taking.
I personally find Look 2 very inspiring! It’s easy to add different layers to create a different look. This is how I wore Look 2 the other day… when I was in school blogging about the Sunday Market Shawl for the first time.
