Different Types of Shrugs for Girls

Hey friends, It’s been a long time since I wrote about fashion and new trends in fashion. Let’s talk about the trend of shrugs in India. Well, it is not that new trend still there has been new varieties of shrugs in the market which really compliments a girl’s outfit. Whether it is jeans or a dress or even some ethnic wear like a salwar suit, these shrugs go along with every style of clothing. Recently I bought a light grey below waist full sleeves shrug. I have been searching for this one since two months and finally I found it in one of the local shops. It looks so cool on me that I actually influenced my friends to buy shrugs. Also, it adds a little more class to my clothes. Now even my mum wants one for herself :D.

You all might have seen Bollywood actresses wearing different kinds of shrugs in movies like for example Alia Bhatt in the movie Kapoor and sons. She is looking absolutely gorgeous in those shrugs. More recently Sonakshi Sinha wore a below waist black coloured full shrug in her album Dard Bedarda and just took the whole video to a new level.

Different types of shrugs in the market-

Shrugs with fringes


These will give you more of a chic boho style. You can wear it with hot pants or narrow bottom jeans. These come in embroidery and plain ones. If you are buying a shrug like this then you should have at least one pair of hot pants and crop top for a perfect style statement.

Talking about the chic boho style well it’s more of a cowgirl look and more detail on different fashion trends you can read my blog chic boho grunge.

Side slits maxi shrugs-

MAXI shrug

Now this one reminds me of king Akhbar’s era. Anyways jokes apart. This one goes great with A-line skirts/midis and crop tops. Advising you a good combination, if you have this style shrug and wear it with a maxi skirt and a nice plain crop top that fits. You can also wear it with tank tops and jeans.

Waterfall shrug

This style of the shrug is more of a party going one. These come in shimmer shades and leather fabric. You can wear them with jeggings and boots. The one shown in the picture goes with dresses and tank tops.


Do try these Maroon shrugs that will go with most of your outfits.

Dolman sleeves shrug

This one has really cute sleeves and gives you a chic look with short dresses and A-line skirts. You can also wear these with Capri jeans.

Lace shrug

These go well with tank tops for a nice rainy day outing. Now this one is not too easy to carry. So buy these only if you know the right colour combinations otherwise, it will ruin the whole outfit.

Shawl collar shrug

I have seen a lot of girls wearing this shrug. It is mostly available in hosiery fabric. Single colour shrug available in full as well as three-fourth sleeves. I have one of these. These come in three lengths-

  • Short
  • Below waist
  • Knee length

Open Front point shrug

These are short ones. They again come in different fabrics. You can wear a lacy front pointed shrug with Chudidaar salwar-kurta or a Patiala. Wearing a denim fabric shrug with a short dress would make you more admirable. All these shrugs are available in different colours and fabrics.

You might find it difficult to get one of these in your local market but there are hundreds of them available online. So go get a shrug today and create your style statement with it.
