How to Wear the Square Scarf like Shazwani Hamid!

Since I started to make my blog public, I have received sooo many kinds of questions about myself and about my stuff or about the things that I wear. And the most common question/email/comment that I have received is this: "Wani, please show us how you wear your scarf! / How do you wear a scarf like that?!"

I received this kind of email/comment/question quite the whole time! hehe. It's so cute to see this kinda emails/comments you know.. because I felt flattered cuz that means I look good wearing that kinda style! Heee. Dan terasa comel/cair bila tengok message/email korang =)
(Oh, and I've seen so many people has started to wear this kinda style and followed us - me and my sister.. How comel is that?! It's like we are the trend setter. eheh! =P )

Just so you know, since I started my days in IIU, I've seen so many styles of wearing hijab/scarf/tudung/shawl/etc. But most of the students here wear the oblong scarf. And I started to wear the oblong too, before starting to wear the square ones. But then I tried using the square, and it turned out to be okay and menjadi! hehe. Tu yang terus pakai macam ni sampai sekarang..
And turns out, many people liked it and requested to do a tutorial on that..

Here are some of the emails that I picked, to publish it here..

"You and your Along look very nice with the tudung (I mean selendang). I really interested to know how you wear your tudung. Can u show me on how to wear that. I have been trying so many times but failed. .and what type of inner scarf (anak tudung) u have been using?" From H.

"Assalamualaikum Kak Wani... Ermm... Mesti terkejut & tertanya tanya siapa saya... Just know me as your fan. huhuhu. I started to know you when my friend introduce me your blog last friday.. N I lurve to read blogs. Now I have about 9 blogs that I wajib review every day & your blog was the lucky number 10. But I dont have any. N I know you have thousand, million or even trillion of fans. hehehe.. but I just wanna you to know that you are so adorable..
I admire the way you dress up... Especially because Kak Wani wear selendang... Saya pun lebih prefer selendang compare to tudung bawal biasa... Selendang does really suit you... Maybe sebab bentuk muka Kak Wani sesuai bila pakai selendang... I wish I can be like you...

Erm.. Kak Wani, may I know where you bought all your selendang? Selendang2 yang Kak Wani pakai tak macam yang selalu saya nampak kat kedai... Mesti mahal kan??? Kalau Kak Wani tak keberatan, boleh tak Kak Wani tunjukkan koleksi tudung & selendang Kak Wani kat semua readers? I'll be excited to see all your scarf collection
I'm sorry if this email will make you feel annoying... I'm just a normal gurl that admire an adorable woman. Thank u so much for reading this... Wassalam. " From Z.

"Hi Wani,

Nak tanya ni... you pakai tudung ni jenis apa ye ? TieRack ke?
Sebab bila I pakai tak de pun awning tu terbentuk
leper jek kat dahi...susah nak tegak kan...heheheheh" From R.

"Dear Wany

"Hi !

Thanks. " From A.

"Salam... Hai.. I am ur blog reader.. Ok,straight to the point. Do you mind to teach me to wear Tie Rack? I just adore the way you wear it. Maybe you can upload in your blog so others can learn too. I baru start nak bertudung. I juz want it simple yet stylish. Thanks" From L.

"Hyee Wanee,

Sorry if mengganggu masa busy you. Btw, nice to know you from your blog. I'm from Kuching. But now I'm not in Kuching, tengah study di perantauan somewhere in UK. Now tgh cuti Easter, so bosan giler tu yang dok belek2 blog especially your blog & your sisters I selalu jugak laa jenguk :)

I nak tanye ni, if you tak keberatan boleh share sikit tak, how you belit2 your scarf?? I sekarang comfortable wearing selendang rather than scarf segi empat tue sbb dah terbiasa kot. I byk jugak beli selendang from Tie Racks sebab kain dia macam best je kan & senang sangat nak belit. Hehe. I ade jugak beli scarf segi empat tu tapi macam tension je nak belit2. I dah try my own version punye belit tp I tak berapa comfortable laa especially kat bahagian tengkuk ni & lagi lambat laa nak bersiap. Hehehe. Tengok you & Iza belit2 your scarf macam simple & nice jerrr..

Hope to hear from u soon. Kalau bole, u letak kat blog u laa some pics How To Belit2 Your Scarf. Hehehe kerjasama mu amat saya hargai nnt :D" From E.


Okayy. First of all, thank you so much for the compliments! Really. I'm so flattered. You guys are awesome (and cute!). I wish I could post all the emails that I received here...but it'll be macam poyo ke apa pulak kan.. Heeee ;p

Secondly, I would like to warn you that wearing this kinda style would be kinda hard for those yang tak ada kesabaran and for those yang jenis tak suka nak leceh leceh. So for those yang suka nak siap cepat, just forget it kay. Because I gotta be honest here, wearing this kinda style can be quite tricky especially when you're running out of time to get yourself ready! It can take you about 5 to 25 minutes to wear it depending on how your scarf 'behave' on that day!!

Yes, most of my scarves are from Tie Rack. But I do have some other cheap scarves that look quite the same like Tie Rack's. (I got them from Jalan TAR or in UIA). And I purchased my Tie Rack scarves via online or whenever I went overseas or in KLIA. (In Malaysia, Tie Rack boutique only available in KLIA, fyi.)

One scarf normally would cost £ 9.90 (I think. I forgot. Please correct me, if I'm wrong). In KLIA, I'm not so sure. About RM 60 - RM 70 per scarf I think? And you can get 'em online from as low as RM 40 to RM 70 per scarf, depending on which sites you're viewing.

The types of the scarves that they usually sell are Polyester and Chiffon. Which is great because the fabric used are not too soft nor too keras for you to bentuk and lilit. =)
And I only use the black RM 5 bucks anak tudung. I don't wear any other type - Yang keras keras tu ke, yang ada awning ke apa entah they call it, or whatever. I don't. Because for me, I tak suka nampak macam loghat sangat. Macam banyak benda kat kepala. Dengan manik lah, awning lagi lah, etc etc. hehe. I prefer simple.

The size of these scarves would be 90 cm X 90 cm. It's not so small, and it's not so big either. For me, this is a perfect size for my kind of style to lilit on your head. Kalau besar sangat susah nak adjust sebab banyak kain terlebih. And you'll end up looking like sarang tebuan ada dekat kepala sebab kembung-kembung banyak sangat! hehe.

Getting ready in hostel

Okay, here's one tip: In order for you to look good with these kind of style, I gotta say you have to balance out your look. I'm not just saying this untuk baju and tudung je. You have to imagine first what do you want to wear on that day. Which top you're going to wear, what scarf, and with which shoes and bag does the outfit go with.. So baru lah nampak cantik if everything that you're gonna wear macam ada kena mengena with each other! (I think). hehe. And make sure you don't go overboard. Because some people I see, they wear everything on them. I mean, macam nak letak semua benda kat badan dia. huhu. The key is to keep it simple. And if your top is already look 'busy' or rather over, then keep everything else simple. If your top is flowery or abstract or stripes or anything, don't team it up with 'busy-looking' kind of printed scarf too! I mean, tak kan dua-dua nak corak-corak, ey? Pening kepala and juling mata orang nanti! hehe. JK.
But if both your top and scarf are plain, then you should wear some accessories like rantai ke, belt ke, bangle ke or anything that would look good on you!

Oh, and another thing, do not wear something that you don't feel comfortable with! Seriously, faktor ini sangat penting sebab barulah kamu akan nampak confident. Buat apa nak pakai somthing yang you know you tak kan rasa selesa kan? Nanti kamu tidak akan jadi diri sendiri. Plus, when you're confident with the way you look, it'll reflect in your eyes dan kamu akan nampak lebih comel. hehee =)

Anyway, I baru je nak buat video on this scarf thing.. So I youtubed it. Sebab nak tengok macam mana orang lain buat tutorial sebab tak pernah lagi buat. Sekali terjumpa Kak Leeds punya. Wahhh...senang kerja saya!! hehe. This is exactly how I wear it!

So girls.. Here's the vid on how to wear this Tie Rack square scarf like Shazwani Hamid's style! heee. Selamat mencuba! =)

So tudung bawal VS tudung lilit. Which one do you prefer, ladies?

  15. There are lot of ways to wear square hijab. Turkish women wear in a smarter way, means does not cover chest fully while arabs do full cover. Iran also different trends are seen while in far east is mixture of many styles which are being introduced by girls who are trend makers.
