Emily Explains: Ways to Wear a Triangle Shawl
This summer I found a shawl at a flea market in Portland, ME. It’s a triangle shawl made of white silky yarn and trimmed with fringe that sways with my every move. This shawl has become one of my favorite accessories because it can be manipulated and worn in a variety of ways, making the form look different each time!
Here are my favorite ways to wear triangle scarves…
I love the asymmetry of wearing the point of the shawl on your shoulder. The look is sophisticated and flattering. Viewed from both the front and back, the shawl gracefully wraps around the body like a wrap or caplet.
Wearing the point off center is quick and easy. Just wrap your shawl around your neck and go. You’ll run out the door looking casual and chic.
Wearing your shawl perfectly down the center reminds me of wearing a bandana as kid. It’s comfortable and classic. You can wear a large, fluffy triangle shawl this way in the winter to ensure your neck and chest to stay nice and warm.
My favorite way to wear a shawl… just thrown over your shoulders with it flowing down your back.
