I had forgotten about the duster jacket, Until recently.
The knee length or just above knee length simple coat is a shape that works well for many women. The length of the coat is slimming and the generosity of style dresses up what is worn underneath.
Now this jacket, re-found and re-fashioned this season is back in my wardrobe, I am wondering why on earth I stopped wearing it.
I recently discovered LA designer Raquel Allegra and her tie-dyed pieces. Her beautiful store interior is featured above. I love her designs but probably can’t do many of them justice.
This style of jacket will work well over a tee and 3/4 black pants or even the more relaxed style of pants we mentioned yesterday. I will throw it over a shell top and jeans also. It is an easy lightweight piece to pack which counts in its favour.
Here is the really good news. I found the most amazing duster jackets in both dusty rose and black on sale. Ok, of course they aren’t as incredible as the Rachel Allegra but the price point is unbeatable. The fabric will travel well and the style most flattering. In this case there are no hard decisions to make.
I will take both, please. xv
