Shawls aren’t commonplace in everyday fashion despite how many knitters and crocheters are sporting them, which can make it difficult to find ideas and inspiration for wearing shawls and working them into your wardrobe. What we do find in the blogs and magazines, however are scarves and wraps in various sizes, shapes, textures, fabrics and prints. They are nearly always in style and can be a good source of ideas for styling shawls.

Today’s tip is to wear a belt over your shawl! Likely something you’ve never thought to do, but here’s a traditional silk/cotton scarf example, and even a knit shawl example that look gorgeous with the belt detail!

Shawl Tip: I think this would work best with larger shawls or shawls with long edges that will stay put nicely when tucked.
