WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SHRUG AND A JACKET?
If you're not sure how to differentiate between jackets and plus size shrugs, we can help. Jackets and shrugs are both considered outerwear and layering pieces, but a shrug typically has rounded edges, shorter length, and-or a cardigan-like appearance.
Plus size shrugs can be dressed up or down, just like jackets, but aren't typically winter-ready without an extra layer of warmth on top. They’re great for year-round wear, though, because many of them are lightweight and make nice spring and summer cover-ups.
DO YOU HAVE SHRUGS IN MY SIZE?
Yes! Woman Within has a beautiful selection of plus size shrugs in sizes 1X to 5X. We have shrugs with minimalist designs, ultra-feminine details, and even a really unique Leather Shrug Jacket.
Our shrugs also feature figure-flattering details, like shaped silhouettes and hip-skimming lengths. There are also lots of fun details that'll help add flair to your look. Beautiful bell sleeves, lace cuffs, and pointelle knit designs can really help you make a statement.
CAN I WEAR SHRUGS TO THE OFFICE?
Of course! We love plus size shrugs for the office because they're versatile, easy to take on and off, and help to present a professional appearance. Nearly all of our shrugs would work well in casual and business casual environments.
Our Belle Sleeve Shrug is absolutely gorgeous and would look great paired with simple black bottoms, like our Tummy Control Twill Straight-Leg Pant. We suggest layering it over a tank from our 3-Pack Sleeveless Tank set and slipping on the cute and comfy Costello Pump by Comfortview.
WHAT CAN I PAIR WITH MY NEW SHRUG?
There are so many ways to wear your plus size shrugs. Because they’re so great for year-round wear, you can layer them for warmth or peel them away when you need to cool down.
For a summery outfit that's great in warm weather, try our Three-Quarter Sleeve Shrug. This open-front piece is easy-breezy and perfect for barbecues, boat outings, and more. We think it would look great with our striped Knit Henley Tank and Chino Shorts. Keep the nautical theme going with the Beachball Espadrille wedges by White Mountain.
Our Leather Shrug Jacket will become a new wardrobe favorite once fall and winter roll around. Pair this beauty with all of your transitional outfits. From skinny jeans with knee-high boots to sweater dresses with ankle booties, you'll love its versatility. You can also dress up this shrug for a night out. Choose a glittering top or little black dress. Pick a strappy sandal, throw in a clutch, and add some jewelry for a date-night look that wows.
