To create a glamorous version of The Cowgirl I began with a Large Square Shawl with Fringe measuring 43″ square with 6″ long fringe.
To tie and style the Glamorous Cowgirl Scarf or the Cowgirl Bandana: Simply position the triangular folded shawl evenly in front of your chest like a bib and tie the ends around your neck. Adjust the drape and fringe attractively.
This works well with smaller fringed or beaded shawls as well and you often see cowgirls in old western movies wearing fringed shawls and scarves this way – which is, of course, the way it got its name!
Below are the side and back views of this style: It is very elegant with a sheath dress and a lovely little clutch bag for evening wear.
Cowgirls were very glamorous! And they had a true love of fringe! I noted it on their shawls, their boots, their bags, their leggings, their skirts, the reins of their horses, their saddles. everywhere! And I was falling in love with it too!
I say, watch a few Westerns for Fringe Fashion inspiration!
In a more casual vein this scarf/shawl tying method works well over a western shirt or a blue chambray work shirt. You can use it on large, medium and small shawls, with and without fringes and in all fabrics.
I will photograph and post some more variations soon!
