When it comes to layering must-haves, the duster is pretty high on my list. Right up there with moto jackets and trench coats, this below-the-knee topper is certainly not going anywhere, anytime soon. And from thick coats to silkier styles, there are literally hundreds of iterations to choose from. 

I grabbed this airy little number from Anthropologie a month or so ago but I feel like it's finally the perfect time to wear it. I'm looking forward to warmer days when pairing it with a dress/skirt is actually doable but today I love how it's effortlessly elevating my jeans! I've linked more of my favorite (very affordable) dusters below so that you can spice up your basics with a new spring layer!

Lighten Up

Marina del Rey, CA

In anticipation of warmer weather to come, I'm beginning to replace heavy winter-wear with a refreshing batch of bright prints and lighter hues. My must-have piece of the moment? A white blazer. Yup, it's time to shelve that go-to black version because sunny days are ahead.

Undeniably versatile, the white blazer can easily take you from a work event (with a high-waisted pencil skirt and pumps) to a GNO (with a silky tank and ripped skinnies) to the weekend (with a casual tank and trousers) and that's just the beginning. 

I found this one here at Forever 21 for under $25! What are some of your favorite ways to rock the white blazer?

50 Shades of Blue

Westwood, CA

Monochrome. The trend is nothing new, but trying out less traditional tones like blue, turquoise and green can make a big bold impact. And this summer, everyone is incorporating intricate prints, floral patterns and lighter warm-weather hues. Similar to mixing prints, you really have to play around with lots different shades before you pull off a winning look. Trust me, I reworked this outfit about four times before I called it quits.   

I love this breezy fit-and-flare dress because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of styling! It blends a medley of blue hues with bold crisscrossing patterns and pretty flower designs. I paired it with a light-wash denim jacket, a bold belt and navy sneakers, for a look that's oh so blue!
