Dusters, sometimes referred to as kimonos, may be lightweight but when it comes to giving you style mileage, they’re anything but.
Duster coats, long, loose layering pieces that you can throw on over-top pretty much anything are the Swiss-Army knives of style. Here are five reasons to wear a duster coat over 40.
1. Cover Up the Wobbly Bits
Duster coats hide a multitude of sins. Prefer to keep flabby arms covered? Wear a duster. Want to deflect attention away from heavy hips and thighs? Wear a duster. A sheer one like the black duster above is a godsend in the summer when the weather is warm, and you want to wear less without showing more.
3. Add Some Color
A lot of gals love neutrals, and I don’t blame them. Neutrals are chic and classy. But I’m also a big fan of face-flattering color and an easy way to get this is by tossing on a colorful duster jacket. In the summer, a bright one over white jeans and a white t-shirt or tank makes a fantastic outfit.
3. Use a Duster as the Elusive ‘Third Piece’
Adding a third piece to a basic pant and top outfit is a styling trick that helps pull an outfit together and makes it look more cohesive. That third piece can be a scarf, a sweater, a jacket, or…. a duster. This outfit is okay with just the jeans and a cute top but see how it comes alive with the addition of this pretty floral duster?
4. Stay Warm
For those summer days when it’s hot outside but cold inside because of air conditioning, a lightweight linen duster is a perfect option to help you keep warm without overheating.
5. Soften an Edgy Outfit
If you like an edgy aesthetic but worry it might be too harsh once you hit 40, a duster is a great way to soften things up. Because they are light and flowy, they add an overall softer look to your outfit.
