It's a Duster Life

Jumpsuit: George at Asda, Duster Jacket: Primark, Shoes: Primark 

How far into October can we justify the topic/discussion of transitioning our wardrobe from summer to autumn as the temperatures are all over the place at the moment? Surely I can drag it on another week or two right?

The hardest part of styling an outfit at the moment is deciding on the outerwear for the day, as I mentioned before the temperatures keep rising as the day goes on. I could leave for work in a morning needing my thick winter coat and then when I leave it is pretty much t-shirt weather.
I am a fan of layering, it is my go to throughout the last four months of the year, as the temperatures fluctuates so much it is nice to know that you are rarely too hot or too cold. Hence my reasoning of trying a duster jacket for the first time.

I’ve got to say that I have mixed feelings regarding duster jackets, more so the longer length ones. Don’t get me wrong I think you can find absolutely beautiful ones and whenever I see someone rocking one I always think they look effortlessly stylish and then when I try one on I feel like I am wearing a bin bag and look so shapeless.

This particular one from Primark has been in my wardrobe for some time now and it I thought it would go perfectly with this jumpsuit I owned and to be fair I quite like the way this outfit looked. 

I'm not going to lie, I was so out of my comfort zone wearing this with these cut out boots and duster jacket (I think it was the jacket) but it took 10 whole minutes before I dared to step foot out of the front door! I know, I know, I really need to sort myself out. After looking back at the photos I kinda like the way I styled it up and would actually venture out somewhere other than to take photos in it.

I’d love to hear how you style up a duster jacket.
