So it's been like 50 degrees here in the U.T. this first week of 2012. The calendar says Winter, but it certainly feels like Indian Summer. Though it probably won't last long, now is a perfect time to pull back out those cute shrugs from fall. They're great for layering, covering arms, adding a pop of color, or a little bit of warmth. I had put mine away, preferring bulkier sweaters to keep the holiday chill away but the warmer weather gives me another chance to play. You can jazz them up with classic or chunky accessories like a three strand faux pearl necklace or a cluster of brooches. Use texture like pleated accents or extra chunky knits to bring extra interest to a simple oiutfit or be visually stunning with bold colors or sparkle. There are so many ways to go with a shrug and they are available at most major and discount retailers. Have fun.
