As Spring draws near, we all want to break out those slinky little party dresses for those special nights out! Well, the problem that most of us run into is that when we wear these strapless or near strapless dresses, we freeze in them! Well, take heart ladies, a new fashion trend is here to help you keep your lovely shoulders, arms and back warm and toasty, while still looking great and fashionable!
The shoulder shrug is the newest thing in the form of a coverup to hit the streets in a while. They come in many different fabrics, shapes, colors, etc. to suit almost any occasion. A shrug covers the parts of your body you use when you do just that shrug! They come in long, short and three quarter length sleeves so you can pick what feels most comfortable to you. Now, don’t confuse a Shrug with a Bolero jacket. A Shrug is cropped very very short, in fact they aren’t much longer than the bottom of the arm holes. Most of them don’t wrap around the body to fasten or close either. They are meant to cover the back, arms and shoulders, yet leave the rest of your wonderful clothing uncovered! Yet they aren’t as bulky or awkward as a stole or shawl. Their main feature is that they doesn’t hide your dress and keep it revealed. With that they add a certain classy touch to your dressing especially in this fall season.
Shrugs have been seen on some of the more fashionable women in fashion such as Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, etc. And while they started out at the designer level, I have recently seen them at my local mall in stores such as Nordstrom’s, Express and several other well known stores. So you should be able to find one at a store near you at a reasonable price!!
So, break out that slinky dress and Shrug it on!!!!
