Do you have a collection of jackets in your closet? Well, it’s time to add one more! This quilted jacket is an inexpensive yet rich-looking option that you can wear right now and throughout the holidays for a casually elegant look.
The Quilted Duster Jacket
The item description online for this little beauty is “quilted duster jacket.” While the general impression of a duster is a lightweight long coat, the original purpose of a duster was to well, keep the dust off. So I guess you could call this a short duster, right?
The quilted leaf pattern in all-cotton gives the jacket provides texture, and I love the fullness of the style. It has cute pockets, too!
It’s styled here with white ankle pants and a rusty brown tank top, but it would look cute with jeans and a tee, too. Or with a silk tank or blouse. For warmth, a fitted cream turtleneck would look chic. I can picture it, too, over a midi or maxi sweater dress for a slightly dressier look. Or how about with a pencil skirt and boots?
You can see there are lots of possibilities for styling this jacket. I plan to wear it for an upcoming holiday open-house party. I know it’s hard to believe, but Christmas is only 74 days away! Yikes! And invitations are starting to arrive as we all seek a return to the new normal.
While I chose the neutral-colored coat in cream, it’s also available in a pretty blush pink jacket. In that soft pink, it would look stunning with either cream-colored pants or leggings or even black trousers.
I’ve been admiring these cute little pouch handbags (sometimes called “slouch” or “pillow”) for a while now but didn’t want to spend a lot for a bag I will use sporadically. So I was happily surprised to find this faux leather version on clearance at Target! I think they add a cute element to a look, whether dressy or casual. Most of these also have a chain or faux leather handle so you can wear it crossbody as well.
Here are some CUTE options. All are made with faux materials resembling leather and suede and are under $50! A worthy investment for a cute clutch to have on hand. Sometimes you just need a cute little bag to complete your outfit, right?
Wow, such an easy and inexpensive way to create an elegant look. Perfect for the holidays!
