Known as shrugs, boleros and sometimes capes, these stylish frocks are a chic alternative to more classic toppers like cardigans, shawls and jackets. Shrugs are basically cropped cardigans whose truncated design and style makes them fantastic for donning with dresses and skirts, but they’re flexible enough to pair with almost everything from lengthier tops and skinny jeans to lightweight tanks and flowing trousers.
While they used to be something only a mother-of-the-bride would wear over her evening grown, shrugs have been given a makeover and are now more fresh and youthful than ever before. They come in various styles and can be worn with anything from causal day wear to glamorous eveningwear. I love the sequined versions (especially at this time of year) because they add a bit of extra sparkle and festive touch to an otherwise boring outfit. But, the knit and crochet versions are great for giving you a pretty layered look for everyday wear.
With just enough coverage over your back and shoulders, this cozy addition will keep you warm during any winter chill. I promise that you won't want to shrug off this fashion trend.
