DALLAS, Mar 15, 2011 / FW/ — In seven days, the spring equinox is here! And though the weather is definitely warming up, there is still some very welcome chill in the air.

With the daytime temperature still ranging from the 50s to the 80s, it can be chilly cool to pleasantly warm. A light jacket, a shawl or a shrug will ward away the cold but you will not burn up when the mercury goes up.

More tailored than a shawl and easier to carry around than a jacket if you have to take it off, the shrug is versatile enough to wear with your favorite jeans or to accessorize an evening dress.

That said, it should also be noted that the shrug is very popular item of clothing and available in so many styles. After all, the shrug dates back from the Renaissance (1594) making it a piece of clothing invented during a very innovative stage of human history.

Thus, it is not surprising that even after 500 years, the shrug continues to be deconstructed and reconstructed, every designer proposing his or her own style. One of them is Austin-based designer Jordan Jeffries who proposes the “Morgan” shrug as an essential item for every woman’s wardrobe.

Affordably priced at $29, the “Morgan” shrug is available in several different prints. AND it’s a one size fits all (x-small to 3XL). They come packaged in a pretty organza bag, which makes them a wonderful gift item as well!

As quoted in a recent product review by “Shopaholic Mommy’s Must Haves” Blogger, Ashley Ruzin, “It’s everything a girl could ask for in an accessory! It’s stylish, goes with just about any outfit, it’s light weight and I get compliments everywhere I go.”
