Tie a knot in one end, then pull the other end through that knot. Adjust the knot to the height you want.
THE BOW STYLE : To give an extra feminine touch to your outfit, you can give this one a try. The main advantage of this style is that it can be done with a long stole and also can be draped by using a small scarf. Length of the scarf will not change its look.
