That’s ridiculous right?!

Actually you can DIY it yourself! This shapeless dress can be easily made by anyone, and I bet every Asian Moms’ did it too.

Now that duster / caftan dresses are IT for summer, how can you wear it in the beach without looking like your Momma?

Check these (8) eight tips on wearing a duster dress this summer:
1). Be creative and accessorize it with your city blings.

2). Fix your hair. Never wear this dress with undone, you-wake-up-like-this kind of hair. It’s a NO NO and you might be mistaken as a depressing woman.

3). Have your nails done. A nice well-manicured nails is gorgeous with this dress.

4). Wear your duster / caftan dress with your summer strappy sandals. Or even your gladiator shoes for a more summer-city vibe look. You don’t have to be in a vacation to wear this look.

5). An afternoon tea with the ladies at TWG Saloon? Wear this duster dress and paired it with your gorgeous belt, heels and eyewear. You’ll look chic and expensive!

6). Wear a minimal make-up when wearing duster / caftan dress. Usually the fabric are colorful so wearing too much make-up will only ruin the whole look. A plumy lips would be gorgeous.

7). Wear it on top of your bikini! This looks great and could give you enough coverage after your swim.

8). Wear it as a top with your summer shorts. Or any bottoms that you like.
