Tips on Trendtation by B* a La Moda.
This video is especially for the girls because I don't think you boys wear shawls. Here are some ways to wear shawls when you go to weddings. The shawl is an accessory that is not often worn nowadays, but it is coming back into fashion.
Here is the traditional way to wear a shawl. Wrap it around your neck and leave one side hanging loose. Then throw the other side over your shoulder. To avoid it falling down you should tuck a little bit of the edge in at the neck like this. Here's how it looks, really simple.
This time leave one side hanging a little shorter than the other. Insert the shorter side under the other side over the top of your shoulder. Then thrown the longer side over the other shoulder. Tuck the edge into your neck as before. Pull the shorter side out from over your shoulder and let it hang in front. This gives it a bit more volume and your arms are free to move around easily.
We will be using a brooch, which helps a lot to secure shawls. Leave one shoulder uncovered. Pull the sides together at the your side and join them with a brooch. Remember to double fold the edges where you join them so it is more secure. I chose a black brooch as it goes well with the black and white colors I am wearing. It is important that you choose a really nice brooch.
Cross the two sides in front of you and tie them at the back. The longer the shawl, the nicer it will look at the back. This keeps you nice and covered for example for when you go into the church. Leave one shoulder uncovered. Another way to wear a shawl is wrapping the side hanging behind your back, around the front and over the other shoulder. Tuck the shawl in at the neck as before. This is how it looks.
There will be more ideas for wearing shawls next week. Bye!
