An article ‘Mix up your fashion – Master the stole!’ on Rewardme inspired me to write more about the stoles and in super stylish ways they can be worn. A stole can be worn in different ways giving a totally new look to the wearer.
Hold the stole on the neck with both the ends equal. Tie both the ends. Make another knot to avoid slippage of fabric. Twist it making a loop shaped like letter 8. Drape the bottom loop of eight over the head. Stole made up of silk can be used for this style.
Fold the stole diagonally. Put it around the neck with both the ends equal. Like infinite loop tie both the ends, twist it to make a loop in the shape of letter 8. Drape the bottom loop over the head. Set the loops as one likes. Chiffon fabric can be used for this style.
Drape the stole on the shoulders. Take both of its ends at the back, wrapping the respective arms. Pull the ends tightly and tie a knot. Pull the scarf fabric below to cover the knot. This will give an appearance like that of wearing a shawl. Thick fabric can be used for this.
Double sided twist
Take two stoles of different colour and prints. Hold them together back to back. Drape them around the neck with unequal ends. Like basic wrap, drape the longer end around the neck so that both the ends are equal. While turning around the neck also turn the fabric so that both the stoles are visible, one in the loop close to neck and other falling down on both the sides of neck.
The turtle neck
Drape the stole around the neck with one end considerably longer than the other. Drape the longer end around the neck three or four times. Tie a knot of both the ends. To secure tie one more knot. Adjust the loops in such a way that knots are behind the draped fabric.
The two knots
Drape the stole around the neck with equal ends. Tie a knot in the middle of one side of stole. Tie another knot in the middle of other side of knot. This simple style gives a trendy look to the wearer.
The classic knot
Fold the stole in half lengthwise. Drape it around the neck with unfolded end significantly longer than the folded end. Pass the unfolded end from the folded ends. Tighten the knot, to look amazing.
