Whatever you're style of dress there is bound to be a 'cover up' out there to suit.
Here are some of my favourites ...
From the amazing girls at http://kittyanddulcie.com this lace shrug is only £35!
The ever reliable and oh so gorgeous American site http://bhldn.com have a fantastic range of gorgeous capelets, cardigans and shrugs.
Gorgeous shrugs and wraps from www.wraporshrug.co.uk
