Ruanas are a versatile garment that can be worn many ways. The traditional Irish way to wear a ruana is to throw both ends over your shoulders to form a double cowl neck. The shoulder can easily be secured with a brooch.
ruana look is formed by throwing one end over a
shoulder and letting the other end hang loose.
Turn the ruana so that the tag is centered over one shoulder. The long end is then draped over the opposite arm. A brooch easily secures the long end.
You can wrap the ruana around your waist and wear it as a skirt. For this look, you really need a brooch or something to secure the ends.
