Some Ways to Wear Triangle Shawls
How do you like to wear a triangle shawl? Maybe you had not thought of some additional ways you can expand your shawl wardrobe just by wearing with a new look.
Here are some ideas using examples from the HeartStrings photo galleries:
Most often we probably think of wearing a triangle shawl in the traditional style as above. Simply lay the long edge across the back neck, with point hanging down symmetrically in back and tails hanging down to each side in front.
A slight modification to the traditional look is to turn back the long edge along the neckline to effect a roll-collar style. This is especially pretty when the long edge is scalloped or pointed.
Or you can wear the shawl asymmetrically with the point to one side, and the tails flipped to back and front over the opposite shoulder.
Turn it upside down! This gives a totally different look. Give it a try -- I think you will like it.
If the tails are long enough, you can wear them tied in front (or not - your choice).
Triangle shawls with very long tails compared to the length of the point (i.e. shallow) offer other wearing possibilities such as criss-cross wrapped in front and tied in back (left) or worn sideways at waste and tied (right).
This is just a start -- play around with your own ideas. Who says a triangle shawl can be only worn one way?!
