Your long time loyalty with Sivana continues to drive us to delight you with our unique assortment that we take great pride in curating for you. Setting your expectations and delivering to our high standard of exceptional customer service, is paramount to our team.

Over the last year and a half, we have navigated through unusual times that continue to bring challenges to how we operate. In recent months, we have been faced with unexpected supply chain hurdles, which inevitably result in product delays. Now with the added tension on global logistics as we move into the holiday season, we will only be able to guarantee Christmas delivery if orders are placed before December 1st. For that reason, we are offering everyone 25% off their order with code: THANKYOU25, as a thank you for shopping and supporting us early on as we continue to navigate through these challenges.

We will continue to release new arrivals throughout the month, but will not be restocking as we move into November. As always thank you for your loyalty.

Warm regards,

Sivana Team

Mastering the Art of Tying a Shawl: Stylish Techniques and Tips

Shawls and scarves, from airy silk to warm wool, are not just versatile accessories; they are fashion statements that can transform any simple outfit into something special. Whether it's a lightweight scarf for spring or a heavy winter scarf for colder days, knowing how to tie a shawl or scarf can add a pop of color and elegance to your look. In this article, we'll explore various techniques to tie shawls and scarves, from the basic loose knot to more advanced versions, perfect for any occasion.

Understanding Shawls

Types of Shawls

Shawls come in various materials, from the ethereal beauty of airy silk scarves to the cozy embrace of warm wool scarves. Understanding the types of scarves, such as the infinity scarf, oblong scarf, or the versatile pashmina shawl wrap scarves, is essential in choosing the right one for your outfit. Pair these beautiful scarves with bamboo clothing for a comfortable and stylish ensemble.

The Versatility of Shawls

Shawls are versatile pieces that can be styled in numerous ways. They can be a simple accent for outfits or take the scarf design center stage, depending on how they are tied. Explore our collection of shawls and scarves to find your perfect match.

Basic Ways to Tie a Shawl

The Classic Drape

The classic drape involves simply laying the shawl over your shoulders. This method works exceptionally well with oversized scarves or blanket scarves, providing a layer of warmth and style. It's a fail-safe scarf style that complements both traditional and Western outfits.

The One-Shoulder Toss

For a more dynamic look, try the one-shoulder toss. Drape the shawl over one shoulder, letting it fall naturally. This style works well with a rectangular scarf or a standard scarf, adding an artistic scarf touch to your look.

The Knot at the Back

A single knot or a simple knot at the back of the shawl can secure it in place. This style is perfect for keeping your shawl in place on windy days. Try it with a beautiful silk scarf for an elegant touch.

Creative and Stylish Techniques

The Belted Shawl

Wrap a shawl around your shoulders and secure it at your natural waist with a skinny waist belt. This style is perfect for adding a structured look to your spring wardrobe. Consider pairing it with one of our tunics for a chic, layered look.

The Poncho Style

Secure your shawl with safety pins to transform it into a poncho. This style is great for adding an artistic scarf flair to your outfit. It's an advanced version of shawl styling that requires some scarf layers and scarf loop creativity.

The Scarf Wrap

Wrap the shawl around your neck like a typical scarf. This versatile scarf styling option works well with both Western outfits and ethnic outfits. Try it with a floral scarf or a gorgeous scarf for a pop of color.

The Arm Cover Method

For an evening dress or a body-con dress, use your shawl as an arm cover. This method adds elegance and is perfect for formal events. It's a beautiful way to take your scarf style to the next level.

Tips for Different Occasions

Casual Outings

For a simple outfit or a day out, opt for a floral scarf or a beautiful silk scarf. These can be tied in a loose knot or draped casually over the shoulders.

Formal Events

For formal events, choose a satin scarf or a shawl scarf. Tie it in a French twist or a Parisian knot for a sophisticated look.

Seasonal Variations

In winter, opt for thicker wool scarves or a Pashmina shawl wrap scarf for an extra layer of warmth. In spring, lightweight scarves in bright colors can add a fresh touch to your outfit.

Conclusion

From a simple knot to complicated knots, there are endless ways to style shawls and scarves. Experiment with different styles to find what works best for you and your wardrobe. Whether it's a waterfall-style scarf, a scarf shrug, or a triangle scarf tie, each style brings its unique charm to your outfit.
