Adding an unexpected pairing to your wardrobe can create interest and add dimension to your style. A simple way to do this is by pairing a shrug with a top. This can be done with both casual and formal styles.

For a casual look, try pairing a denim jacket with a printed top. For a more formal look, try pairing a printed shrug with a white blouse. These are just a few examples of how you can create interest with an unexpected pairing of shrugs and tops. Try the Shade Abstract Printed Overlayer for a statement look. 

  1. Let Your Shoulders Do The Talking


A light overlayer is a perfect way to add some extra style to your look without going overboard. It can also be a great way to add some cool on a hot day and make you feel warm on cooler days. And best of all, it can help accentuate your shoulders, which can be a great asset.

So if you're looking to add a light overlayer to your wardrobe, here are a few tips to help you choose the right one. First, consider the fabric. Light cotton or linen overlay will be perfect for a summer day, while heavier wool or cashmere will be better for colder weather. Second, think about the colour. A light overlayer should complement your other clothing, so choose a colour that goes well with what you already have.

  1. Layer on Over a Midi Dress


A shrug is a perfect way to add a touch of style to a simple midi dress. This versatile piece can be worn over the dress as a bolero, or on its own as a standalone top. A shrug can also be a great way to cover up your shoulders if you're feeling a bit self-conscious.

To style a midi dress with a shrug, simply layer the shrug over the dress. You can wear the shrug over your bare shoulders, or off-the-shoulder for a more glamorous look. If you're wearing the shrug as a bolero, make sure to tightly fasten the front so that it doesn't slip off. And if you're planning on wearing the shrug on its own, choose a style that complements the dress, and don't be afraid to experiment with different looks. The Petunia Shrug is a lovely piece to complement your dress.

  1. Hit Some Jazz With a Dash of Colours


A monochromatic outfit is a timeless and chic choice for any occasion. But if you're looking to add a touch of fun and personality to your look, try adding a colourful overlayer. A brightly coloured jacket, scarf, or piece of jewellery can add just the right amount of pop to your outfit. And the best part is, you can easily change up your look by switching out your overlayer. So if you're ever feeling like your outfit needs a little something extra, reach for a colourful piece to brighten up your look. For example, this vibrant Bold Stripe Overlay is a great way to complete your look effortlessly.

  1. Incorporate Texture With Sheer Fabric

While many run for cover when they see a sheer fabric, it can actually be quite versatile. In the right hands, it can add interesting texture and dimension to an outfit. The key is to use it sparingly and in strategic ways.

One great way to incorporate sheer fabric is to add a light, transparent shrug to your ensemble. This will add a bit of coverage without weighing you down. And, because the fabric is sheer, it will add an interesting layer of texture to your look. As shown above, you can try the abstract printed overlayer, Ito for a refreshing ensemble.
