Popping In With A Duster

Popping In With A Duster

Happy Wednesday ladies. My mind is reeling with thoughts of color and after reading your comments yesterday, I’m even more inspired to dive deep. It’s funny, but the more I read and see, the less convinced I am of the colors I’ve been choosing. This could prove to be a costly awakening. Luckily the season is changing so if I go a different direction with my color, there are many options to choose from and they’re all on sale:)

Pam and I have decided to pop in with another mid-week, would you wear it. We normally do these on Saturday and use mannequins, but we are having to make do under the circumstances. We want to know if you would wear the outfit we are sharing.

So tell me, ladies, would you wear this look? How could you style it to work for you?

I love the dramatic swish of a long duster. Linen, cotton, and lightweight blends are terrific for warm days. Here are a few that caught my eye.

Now let’s go see what Pam’s got for us at Over 50 Feeling 40.

Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.

    I love this look and have a long grey and taupe knitted duster (in South Africa we’d just refer to that as a long jersey) that I wear often. I like this look and you can dress it up or down with ease.

    Have a splendid day and a fabulous weekend.

    I would definitely wear this outfit although I would change the cardigan color. Dark wash jeans with a top and a long sweater, cardigan, or duster is one of my go-to looks. In winter the topper is heavier weight than in the spring and summer. Likewise the color choices would change as well. Darker color tops/sweaters for cold weather and lighter, spring/summer colors for those seasons. My topper would need to reach the top of my thighs at a minimum if I am wearing bermuda shorts or crop pants to conceal major weight area. The longer topper shown here would only work with full length pants, which is how I wear it. As for the sleeveless top that’s shown here, I definitely only wear sleeveless tops when I can hide my upper arms with a topper. And I don’t wear sleeveless in cold weather.

    This is an outfit I would definitely wear, color and all. Being short I might have to wear a shorter length but otherwise it’s perfect!

    This look is definitely me! I would wear it exactly as shown except that I’d probably add a simple necklace. Black is not the best colour for me, but with the warm amber colour over it, the basic black tee would work just fine.

    After reading all these positive comments I feel like I’m missing something. Dusters don’t work for me. I would get this all creased and wrinkled when sitting down. If I took it off to sit down, then what would be the point of wearing it? Also this is too hot for summer and not warm enough for winter.

    I love dusters and cardigans, but I want at least one button. Otherwise they fly open when I am outside, and I find that really irritating!

    Love the look, but I am 5’4″ and would drown in this. I need cardigans that hit right below my jeans pockets in back. J. Crew used to carry colorful cotton ones, and if they made washable cotton-spandex ones now, I would buy ten of them. No frills, no collars, and not twinset type. Just a nice long look that’s not REALLY long! Wish manufacturers would wake up.
    Thanks for your blog…it’s been fun and uplifting while we are stuck at home.

    I love loVe dusters ( must be way below the knee) and I’m not quite 5 feet. It gives such a long, slimming line. I have several and always feel glamorous in them. This one is not a color I can wear. I’m in the market for a navy one. I just won’t wear one that’s clingy on the bottom.Even with my narrow hips, it’s not a refined look. No skinny pants or jeans for me. I just don’t like the feel of them (I have thick- ish legs and wear a small size because of the little hips but then the pant legs are too tight.) I wear my dusters with straight leg pants. Really straight leg, not what’s currently called straight which actually narrow somewhat at the ankle. Mine go straight from the hip. All the way to the floor. And linen blend, not linen, because I feel sloppy with wrinkles. I have enough on my face! BTW, when I need replacements of the pants, I buy wide leg and make a seam straight down, using an old pair as a pattern. So easy and works every time!

    Yes! Totally me skinny jeans and all! I probably would pick gray duster but would wear this.

    This is the most “me” you’ve ever posted. I love everything about it. Simple, clean, sophisticated. I’m warm-toned (Autumn in Color Me Beautiful language), and I wear a ton of camel and black, sometimes with a pop of orange-y red or leopard.

  11. Griselle

    I would definitely wear it. I live this look.

    I love dusters, and I think I would wear this outfit but switch out the tank for a white shirt.

  13. Peggy Beavers

    A lovely outfit I’d wear. Being a short plus size, I’d need to keep tee and pant the same color and not tuck in the tee. Don’t want to defeat the lengthening look a duster provides with a horizontal line. Only recently learned I could wear dusters. Thought a person had to be tall. Now, this is my fall and winter uniform. I frequently wear a duster in place of a light coat during the Spring and Fall. Thank for showing one can wear the look during the summer. To my eyes this is a classy look.

  14. Kathy
    May 13, 2020 / 12:48 pm

    I love this look and would absolutely wear it; I’m a little unsure about the tan color and would have to try it on. I would add a long pendant necklace and an armload of bangle bracelets to accessorize the outfit. There are so many ways to wear this look.

  15. Audrey
    May 13, 2020 / 12:47 pm

    Yes, I love the monochromatic look, except that I would wear a duster or tank that had a color pop to break it up a bit. I like the close fit of the pants and top balanced by the loose duster. I also like the suggestion of bright accessories as an option.

  16. Beverly
    May 13, 2020 / 12:27 pm

    I absolutely enjoy dusters…especially paired with skinny jeans…just not in this color combination. I had my colors “done” by Color Me Beautiful: I am a Summer, and although it’s been almost 40 years since then, I still enjoy and feel confident in my colors.

  17. P Sledge
    May 13, 2020 / 11:49 am

    I love this outfit. I’m 5′ 3″ and if I can find a duster in a petite size (the Banana Republic camel one does come in petite), I think they look good and make me feel taller.

    Love the linen duster, in fact I have one very similar, only in wool…

  19. MP
    May 13, 2020 / 11:14 am

    I like this outfit. I prefer dusters to kimonos any day. I would switch out the color for navy, black, burgundy, creamy winter white. The tan shown here is not for me.

  20. MollIe M.
    May 13, 2020 / 11:01 am

    Absolutely I would wear this outfit. Camel and black go beautiful together. This is a colour I would wear. I have several of these long cardigans. My favourite is an animal print from Chicos.

  21. Becky
    May 13, 2020 / 10:48 am

    No to the duster. Like maxi dresses, long dusters always make me feel as if I am wearing someone else’s clothes or am playing dress up as a kid.

  22. Katrina
    May 13, 2020 / 10:47 am

    Dusters look cute on others, but for me, they remind me too much of my mother’s bathrobes. I could not wear one. I also fear the proverbial “rump-sprung” look in any knit below the waist. Black & brown are a go-to combination for me. I love the combination with these jeans. Jeans are something of a “hidden neutral” these days. I would have worn a short brown cardigan here. Maybe pull it together with a scarf or fun leopard purse or shoes.

  23. Eve
    May 13, 2020 / 10:43 am

    There are some things you just know will not make you feel comfortable. Dusters are one of those for me. I love long cardigans but Thin cardigans, sheer blouses, ripped jeans, tight jeans, gladiator shoes, structured anything, just not for me. It really has to fit more than your body to work. Lifestyle and personality are important.

  24. Patty F
    May 13, 2020 / 10:16 am

    I would prefer the duster slightly shorter (above the knee) as I am 5’3″ and would consider it in the fall. It is almost 100 degrees in AZ so would be too warm to wear at this time.

  25. Jen

    Being brown, I would not choose it given my school uniform trauma! lol. But in grey, I would love it. Xx

    May 13, 2020 / 10:08 am

    I like the look but not the color of the duster. I would wear the black version and possibly the green. I wear white but I am not attracted to a thin white duster.
    The results of your color research will be interesting. I had my colors done years ago using Color Me Beautiful. I’m a winter and the colors recommended are the ones I’m drawn to and are flattering. I recently answered the questions on a vendor site and the results say I’m a summer. I have green eyes and my hair is now lighter due to all the gray but I didn’t feel the results were accurate. I’ll be interested in your virtual results

  28. Sue Daugherty
    May 13, 2020 / 9:12 am

    I love the look of this whole outfit but I would have to swap the black top out for brown or navy. Black is not flattering at all with my skin tone.

  29. Penelope
    May 13, 2020 / 9:05 am

    I’m with the general consensus on the outfit. I love the classic color combo and styles. As long as a longer knit item doesn’t pull across my backside , making it look twice it’s size, (especially a light color) at 5’3” I can wear dusters and long cardigans. But they have to hang freely. I also need to wear a heel for more height. Camel in the right shade has always been my favorite. I love it as a core wardrobe color.

    I’m so curious about your color explorations, who you are reading or seeking out, what discoveries you’re making. . I recently did an experiment inspired by a well known color analyst, to find my skin tone. It requires mixing paint colors until a skin tone match is achieved. It’s a bit complicated, but it was an interesting exercise to find what colors actually make up my skin color. Have you ever heard of this theory? I was surprised to find my skin has a dominant copper tone rather than yellow/golden. I’ve wavered between the “ “autumn” and the “ spring” palettes for many years and this new view of my skin has me reinvestigating my closet as well. Time to do another draping.
    Please share your discoveries!

    I love this look and wear this exact look often. I have a thing I guess for longer sweaters and own several in varying colours and weights. Even though I have a lot of black in my current wardrobe, I’m slowly trying to replace most of it, as it tends to make my softer colouring look a bit harsh. Navy is my staple colour, so I would probably swap the black top for a deep navy blue. To dress up the look for work, I would add a long necklace or a light weight scarf. I would tend to wear a longer sweater such as this with a slimmer plant/jean, pencil skirt or sheath type dress for a slimming look. A longer sweater for example, in my opinion would not look good on a wider plant or fuller skirt/dress. For me and my current lifestyle, this is a look I current wear often. The neutral colour of the sweater, can be worn with a variety of colours that personally look good on you.

  31. Dianne🇨🇦
    May 13, 2020 / 8:35 am

    Absolutely love this look.
    I made the mistake of buying a long sweater that was too big for me & made me look “swamped”.
    I love the whole outfit.
    Adding the duster elevates jeans.

  32. Claudette
    May 13, 2020 / 8:21 am

    I love the outfit but have always felt swamped by a duster due to my height. I might rethink this after reading all the remarks. I have silver hair so redoing my clothing to add a little color so I do not look so washed out.

  33. Jayne
    May 13, 2020 / 8:19 am

    Love this look! I have a gray and navy blue duster and I love them both. They dress up a pair of jeans and look stylish. I would probably add some jewelry and make the t-shirt drape a little as my “social isolation belly” needs help, but otherwise, it’s a yes for me!

  34. Susan
    May 13, 2020 / 8:07 am

    Love the outfit. Would prefer a different color duster tho since it’s not best with my coloring. Definitely my casual style vibe.

  35. Marlene Ward
    May 13, 2020 / 8:04 am

    This is what I wear all the time here in Canada in spring and fall especially. I don’t tuck in the tops though. A white top would work with this as well.

    For work, I wear the same look but with dressier pants.

    My 32 yr old daughter also wears this but with the tops tucked in and sometimes with ripped ankle jeans.

  36. Norma G
    May 13, 2020 / 7:52 am

    Yes! I would wear this in a heart beat. I love dusters and have several in different colors and fabric weights. Since it’s a black top, I would add a punch of color, maybe a long necklace to emphasize the vertical line. The necklace would either be a goldtone metal or something with tan and other colors. At 5’4” I prefer a duster to hit me between mid thigh and just above the knee. If the duster is a very light weight knit, at the knee or just below the knee even works for me. Lightweight dusters are such an easy way to elevate the look of jeans and a tank or tee.

  37. Sharron Pellegrino
    May 13, 2020 / 7:34 am

    I wear dusters a lot. And long cardigans. They dress up and dress down. Classy and casual.

  38. Barbara Kluver
    May 13, 2020 / 7:31 am

    This outfit is an absolute yes for me. I love everything about it except the color of the duster. My coloring and that camel color don’t play well together. I would prefer a gray, black or navy. Love it with the jeans.

  39. Cindy
    May 13, 2020 / 7:26 am

    This outfit is an absolute YES for me! I love dusters!

    May 13, 2020 / 7:21 am

    I would wear and do wear it! I love this type of neutral styling like many of the ladies here! This is a go to for me!

  42. Cyndi
    May 13, 2020 / 7:19 am

    Yes! This 3 piece combo is my go-to outfit. I tend to be cooler natured than most people so I like the comfort as well as the style. It takes a very basic jeans or pant and a very basic top and gives it a chic factor. I can do a color column using the same color pants and top or vary for a more casual look; add jewelry or a scarf to up the interest; switch shoes and purse… It really is a style formula that covers much of my lifestyle.

  43. Marc
    May 13, 2020 / 7:16 am

    Yes, I would wear this. I feel confident in a flowy duster.
    I enjoy a neutral color palette with jeans or when I am just trying to be low-key — not have too much attention drawn to myself. I wear bright colors when I have less time for my makeup or when I am feeling energetic and don’t mind how it will draw more people to smile or interact with me.

  44. Cheryl
    May 13, 2020 / 7:15 am

    Absolutely would wear this combo! I have several long dusters in differing weights for the seasons. Like you, I am trying to add some color to my wardrobe and just received through the mail a shorter duster twinset in aqua. Should go great with shorts!

  45. Laura Jane
    May 13, 2020 / 7:14 am

    I love this type of outfit and have several versions of it in my closet. However, I look awful in camel so I’d switch the duster for a different color! I think camel is a tough color for many people, even though it’s a “neutral”. For the petite women who think they are overwhelmed by a duster, I think the key is to find one that is a thinner knit and slightly fitted.

  46. Susan
    May 13, 2020 / 7:14 am

    I love dusters and I wear this look often.My problem is that I live in Michigan and we still need coats.Its hard to wear a coat over this.Sometimes I layer a light down jacket underneath the cardigan

    • Sue
      May 13, 2020 / 12:36 pm

      Susan, I have been known to roll up my longer dusters and jam them in my purse, wear a coat, and put on the duster at my destination!

  47. jmp
    May 13, 2020 / 7:10 am

    You bet I would wear this! Since I’m short, the length of the duster might be an issue. but if it were the right length, I’d definitely buy it and wear it.

  48. Pat
    May 13, 2020 / 7:08 am

    I have several dusters, and I will say that I do feel elegant wearing them. Since my hair is no longer colored, naturally a white/gray, colors with yellow undertones do not work for me. The color of our hair determines our best colors to a large degree. Through the years, hair stylist have had my hair color from red to blonde and everywhere in between. When it is darker, I was told I looked like Shirley McClain, blonde or blonde highlights more like Linda Evans, so go figure. The money I have spent on changes with hair color and clothes have been ridiculous. So I’m trying to get it right this time, with my hair it’s natural color. Winters seem to have the easiest time finding their colors, since black and jewel tones are always available. Summers are difficult, since they are three different classes of the season. Sorry, I’m still writing on color analysis.

  49. Paulette Levy
    May 13, 2020 / 7:03 am

    I do like this look, jeans, tee and duster. I own two myself, one in black and one in a very pale beige. Trust me they are so right when a blazer or jean jacket just doesn’t work. I might lighten or brighten up the tee with stripes that pick up the duster shade, or Ivory or lighter shade. That’s the only change I’d make. Another versatile outfit for our rather cool (cold?) spring here.

  50. Cara
    May 13, 2020 / 7:00 am

    I love the outfit and would definitely wear it. For a pop of color I would add some turquoise or bright blue jewelry.

  51. Linds
    May 13, 2020 / 6:53 am

    I would LOVE to wear this outfit! Perhaps changing the duster to a light gray but keeping everything else!

  52. Linda GR
    May 13, 2020 / 6:50 am

    Yes, I’d wear a duster. I’d have to have it in a petite, and I’d prefer a linen blend over a knit. I think these look great over Jeans or slacks.

  53. Sue
    May 13, 2020 / 6:49 am

    I like the look of the cardigan but no I would not wear it because of my height. I am 5’4″ and whenever I try something like this on, I feel swamped in it. I do like the outfit but it is not for me. I always admire taller people who can carry this off.

  54. Mary
    May 13, 2020 / 6:39 am

    I would definitely wear this. I’m fact, I have numerous variations of this look in my closet right now. I’m tempted to say it’s become my signature style.

  55. Julie F
    May 13, 2020 / 6:38 am

    Absolutely would. This is pretty much my recipe for work: chinos or jeans, cotton knit top (crew, narrow V, bateau, or turtleneck – no scoops) & 3rd piece of long open cardi. If I wear one really long like this, it doesn’t go on until I’m out of the house & safely away from Crazy Freddy (dog) who would probably grab & tear it. Also love that saturated camel color.

  56. Carolyn
    May 13, 2020 / 6:31 am

    It’s a lovely look but I feel the long length of a duster overwhelms me. I prefer a longer length lightweight cardigan that hits me at mid thigh. I’m about 5’2″. I used to wear more camel when my hair was dark but now that I’m silver, it’s not a flattering color. Scarves can help me to brighten the look around my face so I don’t look so washed out.
    I agree with you. Colors are fascinating, aren’t they. My complexion has lightened just like my hair. Finding the right shades now can be a challenge.

    • Anon
      May 13, 2020 / 7:32 am

      That’s the length that suits me best, too, and I am tallish. I like freedom of movement, so longer dusters aren’t my thing. Camel and beige also aren’t my thing.

  57. Holly
    May 13, 2020 / 6:27 am

    Excellent outfit. I definitely would & do wear this type of outfit all the time. I love the solid colors too.

  58. Alison
    May 13, 2020 / 6:15 am

    I love dusters, but feel they overwhelm my frame. Because they are so popular I am thinking maybe I haven’t found the right one yet.

  59. Linda M
    May 13, 2020 / 6:11 am

    I love it and would wear it (in fact, I do :)). With my camel duster and black tank, I wear big amber beads or a huge pendant (I make my own jewelry, so use my wardrobe as more of a background to my accessories). My leopard mules are usually brought out too, but I have some flats in a tapestry pattern of many colors that also look nice. To elevate it a little, I have some black, pointy toe croc flats that would be crisp, especially if the tank was topped by an extra winter layer of a white button down under a heavier duster.

  60. Kelly H
    May 13, 2020 / 6:09 am

    Dusters are one of my work wardrobe staples. My “go to” look is to wear black leggings and a black tank top under pretty much any color (except black) wool duster in the fall and winter. I usually add a colorful scarf or a long statement pendant necklace or an eye-catching brooch. In the summer, I change up the look with white jeans and a white tank under a linen duster. I find that dusters, overall, are slimming, and especially so when worn with one color underneath. I think I will try to incorporate them into my weekend wardrobe, paired with jeans, as shown on the model, for a more casual look.

  61. Helen
    May 13, 2020 / 6:05 am

    LOVE this look! Not sure of the camel color although you can liven it up with a colorful scarf or necklace. This is one of my favorite looks and wear it a lot.

  62. Cyndi
    May 13, 2020 / 6:05 am

    Love the look and love camel and black combo. I’m not sure that the length is ideal for me. I also like the olive version – I’ve been into muted dusty colors lately.

  63. Melissa
    May 13, 2020 / 5:58 am

    Love, love. love this outift. This is how I dress- mostly solid colors. Love the darker camel color. Can add bright colors by throwing on a scarf. Also long necklaces (French Kande) work well with the longer cardigan. One thing I would note–in certain weather (in the midwest we are not having a warm spring), if you want to wear a long cardigan it either has to be warm enough to wear on its own or cold enough to wear a much longer coat over it. Hate the look of a long cardigan sticking our under a coat.

  64. Terri
    May 13, 2020 / 5:56 am

    I like every thing about this duster! I have four of them in various colors and wear them often.

  65. Ann M
    May 13, 2020 / 5:55 am

    Love the style of the cardigan, but desert tan is not a good color on me. It brought back a memory of my sons’ kindergarten teacher who wore dusters like this and only dressed in columns of beige and camel. She was tall and slim with an olive complexion and always elegant with her dark hair in a sleek chignon. You can be sure I tried to emulate the look, ha… now I know better. It was the wrong color palette for me as I’m a summer and need pastels with warm white and deep blue (instead of black) as my anchors.

  66. Donna
    May 13, 2020 / 5:47 am

    Love this look from head to toe! ❤️Great together and lots of options to wear separately.

    Duster would look great with all white, all green, all black underneath (you get the idea). Depending on the season.

  67. Mary
    May 13, 2020 / 5:36 am

    I like this outfit and it is one I wear (I agree not around the grandbabies, though!) I might put this outfit aside until fall, when I would really welcome this look. I am needing some bright colors right now. Spring where I live has been a long time coming.

  68. Fiona
    May 13, 2020 / 5:33 am

    I think the outfit looks lovely, though personally haven’t worn blue jeans for decades, instead preferring trousers. I have several long open cardigans, but find that when going out I usually want a proper jacket for warmth so don’t get the use out of them that I thought I would.

  69. Debbie Bell
    May 13, 2020 / 5:32 am

    I love it and wear this look unless I’m busy with my grandchildren- gets in the way.
    I say have it in your favourite neutral(s) and add colour underneath.
    I have a sleeveless one in linen beige for summer.
    It will never go out of style.
    Thanks for the reminder!

  70. Janet
    May 13, 2020 / 5:30 am

    A perfect outfit for me especially in a cooler climate! The only issue is the colour. Tan doesn’t work for my pale/cool colouring.

    • Priscilla Shoulders
      May 13, 2020 / 6:03 am

      Janet, tan isn’t my color either because my hair is silver however I often wear tan with a brightly colored scarf and it looks amazing. Hope this helps

  71. Nancy
    May 13, 2020 / 5:15 am

    I love this look. I am short and getting plump around my middle as I age (82). I enjoy wearing a column of color like navy, camel or off-white. Presently I own a camel long duster and I have a too- small blue and white striped button front dress I use as a duster. I find them slimming and add length to my 5’ stature. I prefer colors that complement my Spring color palette. The above photo does that. Easy to shift colors for those who favor cool skin tone and colors.

      Interesting comment on height. I am short and too big, I thought the duster would be too much but I will try one! I am 77, amazing to say that….
      I love the look. But would try a different color.

    I never wear this color. Also, I live in a very warm climate. I already have one cute sweater coat/jacket that I got from Chicos last year. I really don’t need another one as I only wore this one once this winter.

    I’ve been thinking of adding one of these to my wardrobe for a long time. I think I’ll take the leap. The grey would be my choice as I like how it looks with denim. As I’m 5’6” Ithink I can pull it off.

    I would wear the duster. A really long time ago I had a long sweater and although I’m only 5’4″ I always got compliments on it. Maybe it made me look longer? I’m here in Texas and it’s already summer so a duster was put in the fall wardrobe weeks ago.

    When I was younger and had golden hair, I wore camel often. Now with silver hair it looks terrible. I’m not a big fan of dusters on myself. I feel like I’m wearing a lab coat. I’ve seen other ladies wear them and they look terrific !

      I, too, can no longer wear camel, ivory, beige, etc. Now that my once dark, warm brown hair is steel gray, I look dull and drab in those colors. I like the idea of a long-ish sweater, but not the length of a duster. At 5’4”, I feel overwhelmed.

    The camel colored, linen blend duster is beautiful! It would make a great addition to my core wardrobe. I would be able to pair it with a scoop or v neck tank in the black, as shown. The color is far enough away from my face and if I added a soft scarf or long necklace it would soften the look. The cut of the duster is lean and not one that flares or adds unnecessary fabric. The camel color also seems to be more saturated and there would not was out my complexion.
    Maybe I should do some shopping today? Hmmm…

    I am 6’ tall and have always loved this look with jeans and a scoop or v top. I always feel put together!

    Love this look! It’s pretty much my “uniform” although I would replace the black since I don’t wear that anymore.

    A definite “yes” for me! I love everything about this outfit including the color combination. I own several dusters in neutral colors – camel, grey, black, navy and taupe – and wear them with jeans, skirts, dressy slacks and dresses. I think I might have to get a few more in brighter colors – love the mint green one shown above!

    Yes, yes and yes to this outfit. I love a light weight duster in the Spring and Summer over a tank and jeans…this is my uniform. I even love the caramel color over the monochromatic column but almost any color cardigan would work. I keep my looks really casual, so I would add sneakers or espadrilles, something with a pattern (leopard would be great with this color combo), to add interest.

      Leopard would be fabulous with this. Thanks Michele.

    I’m a Black and Tan person so I would buy this although being short I have to be careful of the length.

    i like this duster, it looks like nice quality. i would have to wear some shoe boots with it, something with a little heighth to avoid feeling chunky. i think it would look like with cream color jean, or slacks and same color tank, a little jewelry, a long tassle chain necklace, with small earrings…or vice versa, chandalier earrings and a simple necklace…

    Oh, yes! I have always liked longer cardigans and have been thrilled that duster lengths have become so popular and are now widely available. I would definitely wear this one; it’s a color I wear, but would not choose the black tee for underneath. Black near my face, especially at this time of year when I’m at my palest, is not flattering. I’d stick with a simple cream or white tee or blouse over the jeans as shown over a dressier pant.

    I love the look but not the colour of the duster. It’s not flattering to my skin tone. The rest of the outfit is my ‘uniform’.

    The duster is too long and not a good color for me, but I think it looks fabulous on the model!

    I love the look and would wear it as is. Also, look forward to reading your blogs daily. I purchased the SMEG and use it throughout the day. Thank you!

    I own lots of dusters and wear them year round. I am 5’2” and have to be a little careful on the length. I consider them the great “in between” for the office. Less formal than a blazer but dressier than just a top

    I like long dusters as they are comfortable, less fussy than a jacket, but can also elevate an outfit. I would wear the camel as it is a great neutral – which reminds me, I do have one in my wardrobe.

    Yes! This is my kinda outfit! I love everything about it…the neutral colors, the long length duster, the skinny jeans. This is how I dress 90% of the time. I think the duster creates a long silhouette which helps the eye go up and down and camouflages my hips/thighs. Nice pick!

    Oh no that camel colour truly washes me out and makes me look very unwell. I like the length of the cardigan, but no no no to the colour. My colouring is mousey with a shy blonde hair and green eyes so this is really a no for me

      Thanks Linda. I couldn’t agree more that the color is so important.
