The New Year in Miami came with rainy days, cooler weather and the opportunity to pull out my boots and sweaters. If only for a few days, it’s still nice to be able to enjoy Winter. That being said, no matter the climate, you can always get away with in-season pieces by knowing just how to style your look. One of my favorite pieces to layer is the long duster, it’s a versatile piece that can be worn with a cute dress or over a tee and jeans and it gets a lot of use in your wardrobe.
I designed this sweater duster with a little flare for the dramatic. The long bell sleeves gives it a little boho 70’s vibe and the length makes it the perfect layering piece. I paired this duster with a cute little silk tiered ruffle dress. I couldn’t picture this silk fabric without flowing ruffles, and this halter is very flattering on the neckline. The best thing about this dress is you can pair it with a t-shirt or blouse underneath for a different look.
I paired this look with a pair of burgundy booties from the new shoe collection by Who What Wear at Target. These booties have the cutest gold details on the heels and they are perfect to pair with cute dresses. Every outfit needs great accessories and a piece that makes a statement. When I saw this tassel hat on shopladidadee.com I totally fell in love and I couldn’t wait to pair it with just the right look. This thin gold lariat chain was a special gift and it’s perfect paired with the neckline of this halter.
