Style Glossary: Shrug

Shrug

A cropped, cardigan-like garment with short or long sleeves, typically knitted. It usually covers less of the body than a vest would, but it is more tailored than a shawl. Some shrugs are tied together just below the bustline, while some are cut off at the sides, making them nothing more than a pair of sleeves joined at the back. More recently, shrugs have taken a new direction, coming in all sorts of prints, drapes, and fabrics. They're the perfect Summer cover-up (and oh-so Buffy Summers).

Oh, girls-who-don't-love-their-arms, don't wear shrugs! Chances are, no one else will notice what you dislike about your arms. Shrugs draw attention to insecurities and make me imagine the worst of women's arms; sort of like how you imagine someone who always wears vertical stripes as being fatter than they actually are.

I just started knitting one myself, but since I am new at knitting and not a very patient person it's a big question mark whether I will actually finish this project. Hope so though, I am not a big fan of my arms either. I like three quarter sleeves, skin hugging but not tight.
