What is "Shrug" - Definition & Explanation

A woman's small, waist-length or shorter jacket.
A shrug is an article of clothing, a sleeved sweater that covers the chest, shoulders and/or arms. It is usually worn by women. Generally, a shrug covers less of the body than a vest would, but it is more tailored than a shawl.
