Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheYoungOnes Misleading image shows fold-over, NOT a lapel
The product photo mislead me to believe this shrug had a kind of a lapel to it, like it could almost pass for a blazer from far away. No such luck. If you try to make this look, the edge will not stay folded over.
This is your ubiquitous flat, draping shrug with a rounded front end. If you have a belly, you should avoid this kind of shrug - instead look for one with longer front ends, or an asymmetrical edge. If you're skinny, once you get to this quality of shrug, why not just get a (more stylish) blazer?
You can get this same pattern cheaper in other brands. However, worth the price for the high quality. Good fabric and solid stitching; the black is a nice rich color.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MelinNC nice over sleeveless tops, can dress up or down
It's true this doesn't really have a foldover lapel as the photo suggests, but it can be worn that way short-term. I bought mainly because this is longer in the back than most bolero jacket/shrugs, which often fall at an odd spot too high above the waist. Great to wear over cap-sleeve or sleeveless garments, anywhere from a wedding to a casual restaurant, without being swallowed up by a loose wrap (these sleeves are too narrow to wear over another full sleeve though). Fabric is also a nice weight for some coverage and warmth but won't snag on everything like more delicate items often do.

I am a big fan of Dana Buchman clothes. Always well made, great fit, and stylish. I definitely recommend this shrug.

I cannot say enough great things about this shrug. The way the fabric hangs on the body is ultra flattering. The picture of it on the mannequin does it no justice. It almost looks like a blazer when you layer it over a brightly colored tank top with jeans. It's comfortable and soft and I think as long as you take care of it it will last for many years. I bought one in both colors because I like it so much. I'm a size 16 and it makes me look 2 sizes smaller easily. Love this shrug/blazer!
