Layering can make or break an outfit. A tasteful option such as a plus size vest or shrug adds the right amount of layer to a casual outfit, making you appear well put together and in charge of your own style.
Extra Touch, American Rag and AGB provide plenty of plus size vest and short-sleeve cardigan options to bring that casual look to a whole new level. Go bohemian chic with a sleeveless vest crocheted from a cotton and acrylic blend. Cinched in with a tie at the front, this open neckline option pairs nicely with a pair of denim jeans. Wear it over a spaghetti strap top or lacy tank and accent it with chunky jewelry for a youthful look, or pair it with a skirt or casual dress for those warm weather outdoor excursions that call for a hippie chic style.
A short, crocheted cardigan, also known as a shrug, is a great alternative to a plus size vest. These shrugs generally do not feature a closure of any sort and are meant to be worn open. They are collarless and have elbow-length short sleeves, but the crochet design is breathable so it can be worn in all seasons. Some styles hit at the waist while others hit much higher. These are great for women who love the look of tank tops, halters, or sleeveless outfits but who prefer not to expose their arms or shoulders too much. Crocheted shrugs provide the right amount of coverage while not being overly covered.
Those that prefer to avoid the crocheted look may appreciate the feminine look of ruffles. Try on a short sleeve ruffled cardigan with pleated edges over those sleeveless outfits. Layer just as you would wear a vest or shrug, and don’t forget to accessories to complete the look.
