It’s time for another Fashion Flashback!
Depending on where you’re located in the world, you might be having a bit of a struggle with the changing of the season. I know here in the desert it’s getting a bit chilly in the late evenings and early mornings, but the days can still be upwards of 100 degrees! This can be a bit tricky with figuring out how to keep warm when going to school, but not too hot as the day warms up. One great way to extend your cooler weather wardrobe into the first part of the fall season is to wear a Duster Jacket.
Duster Jackets were first worn in the early 19 and 20th centuries as a way to protect clothing from dust while riding horseback or in wagons. Being that they were created to protect clothing rather than warm the body, they were made from light weight materials and were easy to wear and move around in.
Today, we don’t really need Dusters for the same reasons as they did back then, but like most things in fashion, Dusters are making their way back around today. Dusters made a presence this year during New York’s Fall Fashion Week. However, it’s thanks to celebrities like Miranda Kerr, Kendall Jenner, and Selena Gomez (to name just a few), that Dusters have been brought back into the spotlight. They can be found in many stores including PacSun, Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and Nordstrom.
Just throw one over your outfit, and you will have a look that’s welcoming to the cooler weather, that will protect you a bit from the chilly mornings and late evenings, but also won’t be too heavy to wear or carry around in the warmer part of the day. Look below for some cute examples of how to wear Dusters, and what styles or colors that might be the right fit for you and your wardrobe.
If you have a cute Duster in your wardrobe that you are rocking this fall, be sure to share with us on Instagram @mderteen! Be sure to use the hashtags #fashionflashback & #dusterjacket. We can’t wait to see you!
