What wardrobe would be complete without a mustard Peru shrug? I know, it’s not your usual staple right, but that’s exactly why I love it. I’ve never seen anything like it and it adds such a quirky touch to an outfit. Aztec print is a fabulous trend that this piece rocks so well and the mustard accent against monochrome makes for a summer sizzler!
This shrug is 90% acrylic and 10% nylon making it surprisingly warm for chilly breezes and cool summer evenings. The aztec inspired geometric stitching is mesmerising to look at, earthy and organic through colour choice yet controlled and structured in pattern at the same time. There is so much detail going on that this piece really steals the show and makes a statement, it is the idea way to jazz up mundane office wear or a smart casual jeans and vest as the wide sleeves create an almost regal feel.
Here I am wearing a size UK6-8 and have teamed it with a pair of tailored grey shorts and a white vest. At £12.00 from Atmosphere it’s a little gem and welcome addition to my wardrobe.
