How To Style a Short Duster

Written by Cat Brady

As we transition from Winter to Spring, it’s always tricky to master the balance between the cold and warmer days that seem to flip-flop constantly. We never know what to wear when it’s warm on Monday but cold and rainy on Tuesday. However, we hit the sweet spot when we find wardrobe pieces that easily flow through the seasons. The Amara Duster is a wardrobe staple that is precisely that. Coming in either a short or long length, the Amara can accessorize an outfit or add an extra layer to your look. Plus, the fun unique patterns add personality to any outfit. Here are our favorite ways to wear the Amara.

It’s sunny somewhere! As some of us can see Spring Breaks and the beginning of Summer approaching, we look ahead longingly at the pool days to come. Amara’s are great as a beach cover-up. Wear it over your bathing suit or pair it with your bathing suit + shorts. It’s lightweight, so you won’t overheat, but it still creates a layer of protection from the sun.

Need an easy, breezy staple look? Throw on an Amara over a dress. This look can work for either a mini or maxi dress. We love this look because you only need two pieces of clothing, and you are ready to go! As the summer weather approaches, accessorize with fun boots or add a wide-brimmed hat. The inner boho in you will love this flowy outfit that was so easy to create.

There's nothing more classic than jeans and a t-shirt. So why not add an Amara over it? Adding a pop of color or pattern to an outfit is our DGY specialty. Start with your favorite jeans, add a plain tee, or get a little crazy with a vintage band t-shirt, your favorite Amara, and boom, you’ve got a “cool girl” outfit.  Accessorize with sandals or some funky sneakers. On days that are a little colder, swap out the t-shirt for a thin turtleneck sweater and add some boots for instant col weather vibes.

We just want to be cozy and comfortable on the cooler days of Spring. If we could live in leggings, we all would, right? This last outfit pairs an Amara with a long comfy top, leggings, and boots. Add a beanie for the cutest look.
