THE ONE FALL WARDROBE ESSENTIAL GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOU LOOK TALLER & SLIMMER STYLED 3 WAYS

Over 40 fashion influencer showing how to style a duster.

Happy Halloween!  Did you dress up for Halloween or take your kids trick or treating?  My kids are grown so I don’t have any little ones to take out so I actually went to a fun Halloween party and dressed up like Cher, lol!  I wore this long black wig and a killer navy blue velvet 70’s jumpsuit.  I did a reel featuring my fun costume on Instagram if you want to check it out.

On another note, this incredibly soft light brown duster from Express is one of my favorite pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe lately. It’s insanely soft and can be worn so many different ways.  I love it dressed up with the matching midi skirt and sweater tank which are both made of the same material so they’re equally as soft which is always a plus!

THE BEST PART, this long duster actually has a slimming effect on your silhouette since it has a longer hemline.

PRO STYLE TIP:  Keep everything else fitted under the duster so this long piece doesn’t end up overtaking your silhouette.

And because it’s UNDER $100 it’s a no-brainer!  So if you’re wondering how to style a duster then keep scrolling to check out 2 other fabulous ways to wear this timeless and versatile UNDER $100 duster.

SHOP THE LOOK:

UNDER $100 DUSTER:

The first place to start when working through how to style a duster is to choose the right one! This one from Express is the perfect example of an ideal duster. It is INCREDIBLY soft and the long hemline elongates your silhouette making you look taller and slimmer. I’m wearing an XS and it fits true to size.

UNDER $100 MIDI SKIRT:

The matching skirt to the duster and sweater tank is made of the same super soft material so the whole outfit is beyond comfy. The high waist and mid-calf length of the skirt create a slimming effect and the hem height allows room for boots as well as heels! I’m wearing an XS in the skirt as well.

SLEEVELESS SWEATER TANK:

Last but not least in this fabulous trio is this sleeveless sweater tank! It is super soft and comfy but also has enough structure to hold everything in place. Wearing all 3 together is an absolute no-fail formula for how to wear a duster! I’m wearing an XS in all three pieces including this chic fall top.

BLACK BODYSUIT:

The most important point to remember when styling a duster is to keep everything under the duster very fitted so the length of the duster doesn’t overtake your silhouette. This fitted bodysuit from Express is perfect to pair with a longer item and the price is unbeatable! I’m wearing an XS and I find it fits true to size.

SHOP NOW

MOTHER JEANS:

These Tomcat jeans by Mother have been my fall go-to denim and it’s easy to see why! The high-waisted slim straight leg is perfect for pairing with your favorite pair of booties and the dark wash gives this whole look a bit on an edge. I’m wearing a size 24 in this fabulous fall denim.

SHOP NOW

POINTY TOE MULES ON SALE:

These shoes are another one of my fall favorites because the pointy toe has an elongating effect which makes your legs look longer and slimmer. They are a splurge worth making at their regular price but they are over 50% off right now, making them a STEAL of a deal! If you’ve been on the fence or waiting for them to go on sale, this is your sign to add to cart!

FAUX LEATHER BUSTIER:

If you want to style a duster with an edge I suggest pairing it with a sexy faux leather bustier like this! This look is perfect for a date night or a girl’s night out when there is a chill in the air. I’m wearing an XS in this fabulous date night top and I find it fits true to size.

SHOP NOW

STUDDED HEELS:

These studded heels by Alexander McQueen are definitely a splurge, but  100% worth it because I wear them a ton when I get dressed! The 3-inch heel makes them reasonably comfortable and the gold studs will give any look an edge. If the designer version is a bit out of your price range, I suggest considering these heels from Express and styling them with a gold anklet to achieve a similar effect!
