Susan Graver Velvet Shrug with 3/4 Ruched Sleeves
The black shrug went perfectly with my sleeveless black velvet jumpsuit.
The perfect compliment to a Susan Graver black dress which was the perfect attire for the office Holiday party.
This style if perfect for the holidays. It has the right amount of ruching and such a beautiful velvet feel. Comfortable and would look good on just about anyone.
Creates a Great Set!
I purchased this shrug in navy to pair with the sequin tank I purchased last year. Perfect! I'll add the navy or ivory wide leg pants and have a great outfit.
This one is so easy to wear, but looks hot, on. I felt transformed when I "shrugged" it on though I was only trying it on over a t-shirt. This will dress up plain top and pant or skirt.
Good fit throughout and not tight in the arms. One comment about "too much ruching" did not seem to strike a chord with me. I think Susan nailed this one!
I happen to love shrugs because I'm 56 years old, size large, and shrugs (if they fit properly) allow me to wear something sleveless underneath and hide everything I don't like about my back. This one is an instant favorite. Fit is true. Length is just right.
Thank you Susan!
Chocolate brown & charcoal please.
Too Much Ruching!
Some of us do not like ruching. In fact, I do not buy anything with ruching. Can you please make more straight lines. Thanks.
soft and pretty
I've worn the same "holiday outfit" for several years--including a beautiful Susan Graver stretch velvet long skirt in teal, and decided I needed an update. I bought this shrug in dark teal (slightly different color than the skirt) and the two colors complement nicely. I also have a silver matte tank with it and I really like my new ensemble. This shrug is so soft and pretty and fits just right. I would recommend it highly to any woman looking for a dressy shrug.
Just what I was looking for
I actually bought a little velvet bolero a few years ago and I was disappointed when I got it home to find that only the two front panels were velvet. The rest of the jacket was just made from a sort of nylon. Since then, I haven't even seen anything like that in catalogs or websites. This is not only a great little jacket, but the colors are better than what I found before. I got the dark blue which really reflects light beautifully. And short women like me always appreciate the 3/4 sleeves.
Best In Velvet Line
I've purchased a number of Susan Graver's velvet items this season and without a doubt this is the best one. I ordered it in the maroon to go with the maroon tank with the sparkles, and it made the outfit. Then I went back for the navy shrug because the fit on the first was so perfect and flattering. I am 5'4" / 1X / 42DD and this was slimming and just right to cover my arms-- true to size. I definitely like the fit better than the velvet cardigan tank set-- which is also a great item, but almost makes me feel like it adds too much bulk to my hips. I felt fabulous wearing this shrug and received many compliments.
I would also say that the picture on the mannequin doesn't really do the shrug justice. This is one item that definitely is better in person. The only reason I am not ordering all the other colors is that I have managed to convince myself that there's only so much velvet one person can (or should) wear :).
Try this shrug with the matching color knee length skirt and the metallic crinkle tank (silver tank with navy velvet is the combo I chose) or paired with the scoop neck sparkle tank in the same color as the shrug.
I got mine today in the teal. I purchased it to go with the sleeveless dress. It makes the dress! I never thought I would wear a top so short, but it truly compliments the dress. I ordered mine in a medium as I have wide shoulders. It fit perfectly. The velvet is first class and the color is beautiful. I went back and ordered a second set in the black. Great top Susan!
I sized up to a large in this shrug and it fits great. I love the fabric and fit. Please bring it back in a brown next time.
