STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dust Off Your Closet!

Ever wonder if it is possible to look professional and sophisticated, yet feel comfortable and casual at the same time? Well have no fear, the duster jacket is here! This loose, lightweight piece is an essential for any and all seasons of the year, and it gives your outfit a special touch that keeps you feeling put together without the restriction of fitted tailoring you would find in most blazers or jackets.

This Fashionista was caught on campus wearing a long light pink duster, paired with a black and white button-up blouse, pink pastel kate spade cross-body, black jeans, booties and what better to top it off with than gold jewelry to complement the detailing of the jacket! Keeping up to date with this season’s trends, the light pink color of this duster falls within the fall/winter 2015-2016 pastel trend that has become so popular this year. The pastel pink shade has made an appearance in many F/W 2015-2016 collections by Olympia Le Tan, Dolce&Gabbana, Lela Rose, and more. In addition to the color, the overall look of this jacket also catches the eye due to its free-flowing silhouette and textured fabric.

The duster jacket is perfect for any season because it can be layered with another jacket or coat overtop for the colder months, or it can be worn on its own during the spring and summer. It is very versatile because it is loosely tailored and contains sleek lines which enhance its business-casual look, however, it can easily be dressed down if paired with some dark denim jeans and boots. You cannot go wrong with a duster jacket, it is a jacket made for any occasion and it comes in many different styles and silhouettes. Next time you are seeking a quick, easy and sleek look, disregard the stiff blazers and opt for a duster instead. It is guaranteed that you will feel more comfortable, and maybe even a little more confident!
