6 Unique Ways To Style A Shrug As Seen On Pinterest
A kimono style shrug is a must have in any wardrobe. In addition to them being extremely chic, the ease and versatility they offer only favours their popularity. From being limited to poolside parties and beach vacations, shrugs have made their way to becoming a street style staple – stylish, effortless and super fun, as they come in vibrant colours and unique prints. At Shaye, we love kimono style shrugs – and make them in so many different colours and statement prints, so you can just throw them on top of any outfit and be ready to make heads turn wherever you go. Shrugs can add an element of interest and character to your outfit and they are perfect to express yourself or experiment with some colour or pattern.
Since we’re guilty of spending way too much time on the internet looking for style inspiration and latest fashion trends (if you’re as passionate about style as we are, you can probably relate!), we wanted to show you some of our favourite shrug looks (that are not just swimsuit cover-ups) from Pinterest that you can try.
1. Sharp as ever
Elevate your white collar shirt with a pop of print and colour with a gorgeous shrug! Wear this look with plain pants or your favourite demins and sandals. The result is a really chic, ‘put together’ look that’s fun, whimsical and unique. Oh, and if you’re looking for the perfect white shirt – we got you! Check out our White Collection for a variety of styles.
2. Easy Breezy
Sometimes, a long printed shrug is all you need to make your outfit really pop. If you’re stepping out to shop, walking around the city or catching up with friends for lunch – you can throw on a long shrug over your black tee and skinnies and look fabulous. It’s absolutely effortless, but gives that model off-duty vibe.
Our new Aliya Shrug is an absolute stunner and so perfect for this look!
3. Cinched to Perfection
A really great way to layer a shrug on top of your outfit is to cinch it using a belt. Not only is it super flattering on the silhouette, it’s also very stylish. You can do this on top of trousers and a top for a lunch or coffee date or with a cami and shorts and statement bohemian accessories if you want to stand out at a concert or a festival.
4. Dressed To Express
If you’re feeling kind of bored with your dresses and want to shake things up a bit, layer your kimono shrug on your dress and pair it with sneakers. It gives it a completely different street style inspired look that’s chic and very cool. Pro tip: If you shrug has a colour or pattern that matches a colour in your dress, it looks even more intentional and well thought out. Otherwise, go opposite – monotone shrug on a coloured dress or a vibrant colourful shrug on a monotone dress.
5. Keep It Hot
For a house party or date night, you can wear your kimono with a V-neck satin or silk cami and pants. The satin cami looks really glamorous and so this pairing is the perfect combination of sultry and sophisticated and amazing to wear if you’re going out for the evening. Pair it with some dainty jewellery and heels and you’re ready to roll!
6. How Adorable
Feeling cute? We ‘adore’ the look of these shrugs worn over shorts and a tank or a fun graphic tee and jeans. The shorts and tank is a cute look on its own but it’s totally elevated by the shrug. Graphic tees are super hot right now so we’d definitely recommend giving this a try. The secret here is colour: if your graphic tee has a colour from the shrug – it works wonders! If not, try to work the colour in through footwear, hair accessories or your bag.
