Q:

How do you use a shemagh?

A:

A shemagh, sometimes also called a keffiyeh, is a bandana-type wrap sometimes worn in deserts to protect against sun exposure, dust and sand. The entire process of tying a shemagh takes approximately 10 minutes.

  1. Prepare your shemagh

    Hold the shemagh so it is fully open. Fold your shemagh in half and position the cloth in the form of a triangle.

  2. Fold the shorter side of your shemagh

    Select an area that is three-quarters down the folded side of the shemagh. Hold the material against your head with the pointed end of the triangle placed behind you. One side of the material needs to be longer than the other. Place the cloth on top of your head. Pull the shorter end of the cloth under your chin in the direction of the longer end. Pull the shorter end back towards your ear and hold the cloth in place.

  3. Fold the longer side of your shemagh

    Pull the longer side of the cloth towards the other side of your face. The cloth needs to cover your nose and mouth. Take the remaining cloth of the longer portion and pull it over your head towards the end of the shorter side of the cloth. Tie the two ends together.

    How do you wear boot leg warmers?

    A:

    Boot leg warmers are usually worn underneath boots with the tops of the leg warmers showing above the boots. Leg warmers are sometimes worn with boots to disguise a gap in the fit of a boot around a slim calf. In this case, leg warmers are pulled to the top of the boot then slid down in a messy manner to create a bulky look.
