Wearing a Duster for Summer. | Ashley from Le Stylo Rouge

Striped Duster + Ankle Boots.

A striped duster makes for breezy summer layering.

Kansas City isn’t quite the sweat box we’re used to in July (yet!), so I’m taking advantage of the cooler temps by working in a fun layering piece like this striped duster. It adds a little something extra to a basic tank and cuffed denim shorts combo. I love the way the duster floated around in the breeze; that movement is so pretty! The balance between the duster’s length and the hem of the shorts works, too. Rugged ankle boots give a little boost to the leg line and ride that boho vibe. (My boots are much-loved ol’ faves, but score similar versions here, here, and here.)

Shop the look:

I love the soft, faded blue of the striped duster; it’s a nice change from all the bright blue I’ve been wearing lately. Isn’t the embroidery at the shoulders fun, too? Very cool placement. Somehow, this piece doesn’t feel too feminine or girly– I helped balance it going with a tougher shoe and keeping the rest of the outfit really simple + basic. Hope you enjoyed this look!

PS shop more from the Billy T line here; I love it! Everything is super lived-in, soft, and easy to rock for summer.

  1. I honestly clicked the follow button on bloglovin’ just after I saw the pink/light blue combination because this is my favorite forever haha! Amazing outfit, I love it!

    Have an amazing week,

  2. It’s so hot here that it’s hard to imagine wearing anything more than shorts and a tank top right now, haha! So glad you are having slightly milder temps at the moment so you can be super cute in your duster!

  3. Love how you styled the duster! I’ve never seen one like this and it does look super boho with the boots and shorts.

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far 🙂

  5. Omg! For the longest time, I would call dusters just really long cardigans. Glad to know they have a name! Anyways, I love wearing dusters and it’s a great way to layer during the summer!
