How to wear a shawl fashionably

I am knitting a lot and I love the look of so many of the shawl patterns available. Different shapes, different sizes, solid ones, lace ones, etc. I want to make some, but I worry that wearing them is going to make me look frumpy or geriactric. I know it can be done but... how?

I know people are going to say that you can wear them the same way you wear a scarf (sort of swooshed loosely about the neck) but I have never quite figured that out either. I don't quite seem to be able to figure out how to wear a scarf without looking stupid. I wish I could but, yeah... can't quite figure that out.
And in terms of the shawls, I'm less interested in having them swooshed around my neck and more interested in having them around my shoulders.
So how does one wear shawls but still look youthful/funky/classic/modern? Speak to me like an idiot because this is a weird black hole for me.
