An important thing to keep in mind while wearing lace shrugs is to avoid wearing colors that are too striking or bold.

Short shrug

Add zest to your outfit with these shrugs. They are short and simple but can make you look incredibly stylish. To notch up your look, even more, pair your shrug with a tee or a top of a contrasting color or you could also have a contrast in terms of design wherein you can sport a solid colored tee with a printed shrug or vice-versa. Complete your look with a pair of ripped jeans for a more rugged and casual appearance.  

Floral open front shrug

Who doesn’t love a beautiful floral print? It has a certain charisma about it that can never be matched. Refresh your wardrobe with floral shrugs as they are perfect for the summer. Even when worn with a simple outfit such as a tank top and jeans, it immediately enhances your glam quotient. For a vibrant look, choose a vivid colored tee or a tank top. You can sport this shrug with a pair of ankle strap heels to look all decked up or you can wear it with sneakers or flats for a more laid-back look.

Oversized cotton shrug

One of the most breathable fabrics, cotton is perfect for a hot summer day. Moreover, an oversized cotton shrug has a loose fit that not only is breezy but also gives you a sharp contrast when worn with a well fitted top. It  is also incredibly versatile as you can wear it on top of dresses, shirts, spaghetti tops or tank tops and pair it up with skirts, jeans, palazzo or dresses.
