Last time I talked about how a cardigan can magically transform a normal outfit into a beautiful and refreshing one in a second. This time, I’m going to talk about the shrug, something very similar to the cardigan. It can be viewed as a loose fitting version of the cardigan. I will specifically talk about how to style a shrug with different types of jeans. To make things clearer, I’ve compiled a list of shrug and jeans outfit ideas for you. Let’s dive in.
Ivory shrugs with a white vest top and skinny jeans
To start this exciting list, I’ll show you a pretty typical way of wearing a shrug over jeans. In detail, you can wear a white body-hugging vest top with an ivory shrug for the top. Pair these pieces with blue skinny jeans and brown sandals to look casual and refreshing.
Heather Gray Shrug with dark blue skinny jeans
Here is a slightly more stylish and sexy outfit. To achieve this look, you can wear a black cropped vest top with dark blue skinny jeans. Put a long gray shrug over these pieces. For the shoes, you can just wear white sneakers to give the outfit a casual and sporty touch.
Black and White Tribal Printed Shrug with Cuffed Boyfriend Jeans
This is a very interesting outfit that tries to mix a tribal style into a stylish and casual outfit and I would say that the attempt is quite successful. To achieve this look, you can simply wear a white vest top with gray cuffed boyfriend jeans and white sneakers. Wear a black and white tribal shrug on the vest to make the outfit look more airy and stylish.
Long, blue printed shrug with black skinny jeans
Here’s another outfit that includes a tribal print shrug. But this time the shrug is long and colorful. You can wear it with a white chiffon top and black skinny jeans. Combine these pieces with black open toe heels to give the outfit a slightly feminine touch.
Black shrug with flared jeans and boots
At first glance, the black shrug here looks almost like a black blazer. You can build a chic, casual outfit around the black shrug by pairing it with a black chiffon top and slightly flared blue jeans. You can pair the flared jeans with a pair of black ankle boots to look taller.
Gray shrug with an all black outfit
For a balanced and pretty look from next door, here is a great outfit that is especially suitable for petite women. For the top, wear a black t-shirt with a long black infinity scarf.

Vertical striped black and white maxi shrug
For a breezy and cool look, you can wear a white fitted t-shirt with black flared jeans. For the shoes, you can wear either white sneakers for a casual look or black ballet flats for a more feminine look. Finally, wear a long black and white vertical striped shrug for a magical airy touch.
White knit fringe shrug with royal blue top
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have the best body type right now. For one, you can always put in some work to get yourself in shape. Second, fashion is both about beauty and fun. So make sure you are still styling and having fun regardless of your current status. Anyway, shrugs look great whether you are overweight or too slim. As an example, you can pair a white shrug with a royal blue vest top, black skinny jeans, and light pink open toe heels.
Wear it with a gray button-up shirt and black skinny jeans
For a chic and refreshing look, you can wear a gray button down shirt and black skinny jeans. Wear a heather gray long shrug to coat the parts.
