When you hear of Pashmina wraps, you generally think of age-old, saree-clad women draping the coveted Pashmina wraps on their shoulders. Yes, this does exist even today, but the numbers are fewer. Let us get it straight, not the numbers who buy this luxurious shawl, but those who wear it in a traditional manner. We live in a day and age where fashion choices have become significant and putting together a great outfit replete with stylish accessories is what makes you stand out.
Let’s give this accessory a spin and give you some styling inspiration.
1. Pashmina wrap - The Shrug Style
We’ve often seen women sporting a shrug with short tops or dresses, but how about making one with your Pashmina wrap? To do so, first, get hold of an elastic band and then drape the Pashmina shawl over your shoulders. Next, tightly hold the two ends at the back together and then pull them through the band. You can accordingly adjust the band so that it isn’t visible and sits behind the shawl, giving you a cape-like look.
2. Twist and Drape Style of Pashmina wrap
Wear the Pashmina shawl all over your shoulders and then just take one end, twist it and then drape it on a single shoulder. Take the other end that’s remaining and put it at the top of your neckline. Voila! You’ve got a stylish way to wear that Pashmina wrap.
3. The Casual Look
Loosely wrap a coloured pashmina with a pair of jeans, when you are in the mood to make a stylish appearance but are feeling lazy to make all the effort. It is classy, comfortable and gives your outfit an edge without even trying much! It can be the perfect look for a work meeting or a lunch date, so give this one a shot!
4. Folded and Tied Pashmina wrap
Fold your shawl in half so it looks more like a square, then fold it diagonally. You will end up with two points at the back. Holding the two corners, wrap the shawl around your shoulders and tie it to one side. It looks elegant and can be sported both for a day and night look, depending upon your outfit. You can team it with a plain top and jeans or a casual dress if you are out for a meeting or join your friend group for lunch. In case it’s a night out, your draping style remains the same. Just make sure you wear a dressy top or that blingy dress you’ve kept aside!
5. The Stole Look
Whatever the celebrities wear or do becomes a rage in no time and the buzzword that seems to have taken the fashion world by storm is airport looks. It’s a recent phenomenon that the media has picked on and seems to go crazy about. Not that we are complaining, we get our style inspiration from there too. There’s a trend that seems to have caught on with the biggest socialites and celebrities, which is wearing a bright coloured pashmina wrap as a stole with a double-breasted coat in bold colours, such as black and brown. It will accentuate your look within seconds!
6. Pashmina wrap with a brooch
To add that bling to your outfit, get a big and glittering brooch, especially if you are setting out to a formal gathering. Take the scarf and fold it in two around your body, then pin the two parts of the wrap together on one shoulder. Try not to keep it too close to your neck for ease of movement, so that it doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable later.
7. Pashmina Shoulder Twist
Another great option is to wear your pashmina wrap with a shoulder twist. To get the look, crush your Pashmina as if you are going to wear it like a scarf. Then wrap it around your neck with the two long ends in the front. Later, tuck each end through the neck and then pull towards the side to drape the tails of the scarf across your shoulders.
We’ve given you some uber-cool tips to style your Pashmina wrap. Now, no longer go for the run-of-the-mill draping styles and make a mark by sashaying down a wedding or a party with the most stylish drapes.
