Turn your shawl into a poncho. To create this style, fold the shawl diagonally in the middle to make a triangle out of it. Then, drape the shawl across your shoulder so the peak of the triangle is resting down your back. Take the other two ends and bring them round the back and then to the front. Form a poncho by loosely tying the front tails in a knot. A lovely alternative to making a knot is using a shawl brooch or any decorative pin. It will fasten the ends of the shawl together and add a nice touch of style to the shawl.

If you're wondering how to tie a shawl for a casual yet stylish look, try the ascot technique. First, make a rectangle out of the shawl by folding it into half. Next, wrap your neck with the folded shawl. When you do this, the loop would be hanging over one side while both the other ends will be hanging over the other side. Pull the ends of the shawl through the loop. Gently adjust the ends if you want to tighten the knot or bring the shawl close to the neck. This style of tying a shawl is a classic and will make you look well put together.

Another style is a simple yet very elegant wrap. Lay the shawl over the shoulders, fully covering the shoulders as well as the upper back. Wrap your upper arms with the ends of the shawl, which should be tied behind the back in a loose knot. This wrap is classy and perfect for keeping you warm.
