Need to find some new ways to wear a large rectangular pashmina shawl over your evening dress?
When travelling if you want to add some variety and interest to your outfits pashmina style shawls are a great way of adding colour (and warmth) over your evening wear.
Taking 2 or 3 scarves can make your plain, neutral dress really feel like you’re wearing something different each time, and with a variety of ways to style them too this will give your outfit different looks.
To tie this shrug style wrap you will need a small rubber band (I like the ones that come off the asparagus and broccolini bunches). Then just throw the pashmina around your shoulders, hold the two long ends at the back together and pull them through your rubber band.
Adjust the rubber band so it sits underneath the back of the shawl, you’ll have tails, but won’t see how they are fixed together.
2. Shoulder Wrap
To tie this simple shoulder wrap style.
- Throw the wrap around your shoulders and then take one corner, twist and lay over one shoulder.
- Take the other long end that is hanging down, feed it over the top at the neckline and down
3. Folded and Tied Pashmina Wrap
To tie this pashmina style, just fold your wrap in half (so it looks more like a square), then fold it diagonally, you will end up with two points at the back.
Holding two corners (the longest length) wrap the shawl around your shoulders and tie on one side.
4. Brooch Pin
You will need a decorative brooch for this wrap tie. Make it big and sparkly if you are going somewhere formal!
Fold the scarf in half around your body, then pin the two parts of the wrap together on one shoulder, don’t make it too close to your neck or you won’t be able to lift the arm that is underneath the wrap.
5. Diagonal Wrap
Again this pashmina tie needs a brooch.
Just drape the pashmina diagonally across your body and pin it together at one hip with a gorgeous decorative brooch.
6. Shoulder Twist
Scrunch your pashina up as if you were going to wear it as a scarf and wrap it once around your neck ending with the two long ends at the front.
Tuck each end through the neck and pull sideways to drap the tails of the scarf across your shoulders.
