The Duster Cardigan: How to Wear It

This post may contain affiliate links*

You can play the long cardigan one of two ways on a date. As shown above, you can elevate your dark wash skinnies and tank to a whole new level of sexy. Don’t forget the bold handbag, stocked with your fav red lipstick!

You can also wear the duster over bodycon. This outfit is perfect when you want to make an impression — your saucy, sexy self is hiding out under that long sweater. You know it. Your date knows it. Hey, is it getting hot in here?

For play

A patterned cardi worn over jeans and a t-shirt works beautifully on your cool, casual days. Try boyfriend jeans, rolled up and anchored with ankle booties. Add a cross-body bag and sunnies and you’re ready for a solid day of outdoor shopping with your gal pals.

For statement-making

If you get your hands on a duster cardi that’s bold as can be, keep the rest of your outfit muted or even monochrome. That way, the boldest piece can do the talking — without interruption from the rest of your outfit.

For the festival

The duster cardigan is similar in shape to the kimono. And the kimono is a popular choice for festival-goers. So you might have the urge to team your cardi with a hat and choker and even denim shorts. All that’s fine (well, except for maybe the choker), just know that you’re rocking a festival vibe at that point.
