I like the short cropped beaded ones best. They are more of an accessory that way.
I have a long sleeve sweater one--I like the look if it ties in the front. But not loose.

I think they look bad in the pictures posted ... they look too granny type for me.. too trendy also esp. with all the sequins and bright colors
although they could look really nice when worn the right way

I think shrugs are a major do, when done well (like everything else..)

I recently purchased one from H&M, it's an understated gold colour; it funks up any outfit immediately

Why wear a crewneck sweater instead of a turtleneck? Why wear cropped pants instead of full-length trousers? It's just an alternative to the traditional cardigan to mix things up in your wardrobe.

I have something like the Valentino one Lea posted in post #62 and I adore the J. Mendel ones.

^^DITO!

Do shrugs look good on women with large breasts? I love the pictures posted, but these were all women with small breasts.

I completely agree kim - I thought they were sweet when they first showed up, but now every single girl I see walking down the street is wearing one. it's all a bit redundant now. and I don't find them to actually be that flattering on many people...

I'm sick of the semi-sheer cotton ones with long sleeves that tie in a knot in a front, but really this is a broad category, I actually like a lot of the more detailed ones like Lea posted...

a shrug is sleeves connected in the back. all of these other articles of clothing in these pictures are cropped/wrap/sweaters/cardigans or boleros. The only actual shrug in any of those previous pics is the one worn by Lisa Marie Presley.

I remember reading somewhere that waaaay back in the early '90s some salesgirl who worked at Wasteland in LA designed and sold the first "shrugs" - these were the ones I'm referring to, the sleeves attached by a short back.

does anyone know if cropped sweaters were actually called "shrugs" back in the '50s?

my opinion...shrugs should only be worn by small-breasted, flat tummied girls, i.e. the "dancer" sweater. same goes for boleros.

as for those awful tie-front-cropped-crocheted things that every retailer has on their clearance racks - I'll pass - and be as thankful as I was when I passed on those early '90s shrugs!
