For a great fall look, wear your shrug with a 2fer tank dress, some denim leggings, a cuff bracelet, and a pair of slouch boots. For a nice casual look, wear your shrug with a pair of ripped jeans, a tank top, and some sneakers. For a day at school, you can pair your shrug with a camisole, a faux denim mini skirt, tights, a bib necklace, and some over-the-knee boots. For Thanksgiving dinner with the family, pair a shrug with a sleeveless tunic, some jeggings, a beret, and a pair of ballet flats. For a holiday party, wear a shrug with a strapless tier dress, some high-heeled shoes, a bow necklace, chandelier earrings, a flower headband, and a sequin handbag. For hitting up clubs, pair your shrug with a tube top, some skinny jeans, hoop earrings, bangle bracelets, a fringe handbag, a feather headband, and bandage shoes. Tell me if you have any more ideas on how to wear a shrug.

Shrug It Off
Around this time last year, I wrote an article about cardigan sweaters. Like cardigans, shrugs are also perfect for layering over almost anything and would look great at the dinner table on Thanksgiving. If you're wondering what a shrug is, it's a type of sweater or jacket that's short, snug, and open in the front. They look best layered over tank tops, camisoles, tube tops, and strapless or sleeveless dresses. Perhaps shrugs can be compared to the cropped cardigan, except that shrugs don't button like cardigans usually do. Take a look at the cute little shrugs I found below to get some ideas.
