When it comes to casual clothing, its no secret that I enjoy a good duster and kimono. They’re easy, comfortable, and most importantly versatile. That’s why they are always on my list to buy every season. A duster is a perfect transitional piece. It works well with summer outfits and fall outfits. What’s cool about a duster especially one that has buttons or a belt, is that you can rock it as a dress or jacket.
I found a super cute Georgette plaid duster from Catherine’s that is very lightweight, has buttons, and is long enough for me to wear it multiple ways. When I got the duster, my initial thought was to wear it open and style it with jeans. However, when I looked at the length, I changed my mind and decided to turn the duster into a dress.
Don’t you just love when your clothes can work double duty? As a high heel lover, I of course wanted to slip on a pair of heels with it. However, it just felt more natural to rock the duster turned dress with flats for a cute and casual end of summer ensemble.
This duster has slits on the side so I had to wear something under it. I added a pair of navy stretch shorts from Catherine’s. Which turned out to be a big help because the day I wore the duster it was windy. Every time the wind blew you would see the shorts which made the outfit work perfectly.
