Why choose it: You're looking for extra coverage for a strapless gown or you just want an insurance policy against a September chill.
What to consider: Options range from the simple (a white pashmina or cashmere cardigan) to the ornate (a beaded shrug). You may want to swathe
a satin gown in a panel made from the same fabric. Ask your dressmaker to order extra material from the same dye lot as your
dress, as colors can vary slightly. Standard silk, chiffon, and lace wraps are sure bets, too―and with any luck you'll have
an accessory you'll actually wear again.
