At the advent of summer, the speed at which we dig out our crop tops and tank tops is equally proportional to the sweating and tanlines we get within 5 minutes of being in the sun. And wearing full-sleeves in 40+ degrees is a no-no! We can't always be in air-conditioned rooms or under a roof either, now can we? So, here's a simple solution for your summer woes so that your cut-sleeves don't go to a waste - the shrug hug!
Here are 10 types of gorgeous shrugs and kimonos for a stylish summer which you can throw a TAN-trum in.
