Have you ever worn dusters?
To me, they are like comfy robes that are upgraded so they can be worn outside the home.
They are similar in some ways to kimonos, but more appropriate as temps begin to cool, duster cardigans may be a good way to stay warm while you stay home and still be able to dash to the store for groceries. Because they are so easily casual, I suspect we will see even more of them available this fall than we did last year around this time.
The Duster Daily Uniform
Dusters are a great way to stay stylish at home, without sacrificing comfort...
But they are very versatile and can be worn in many different ways.
The first time I ever saw one, my mother was wearing it. It was a red plaid coat that matched her outfit, becoming an accessory layer, and it ended at about the middle of her legs. My mom was short like me.
I remember how impressed I was with the outfit, but I knew she would take off the coat once she got to church, and instantly the outfit would lose its pizazz.
Some months later, I bought my first duster. It was red, too, but was made of much softer and cozier fabric, and had black piping down the middle. Back then, I thought I was a winter (which means cooler coloring), so I snapped it up and wore it with a black top and tapered black pants.
That was the beginning of my love affair with dusters, and it happened more than twenty years ago!
If you would like to upgrade your loungewear while you're still at home, a duster cardigan will instantly do the trick. Pair it with a shirt or long-sleeved top and leggings and add flats or cozy slippers, and your outfit will be stylish but still comfy.
For your work-required Zoom meeting, just add a scarf that ties it all together and matching jewelry.
