Insomniac Sale Picks: Sweater Coats and Dusters

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Jennifer requested a few picks for sweater coats and dusters that will work on a petite frame, so here we go:

Aran Cable Cardigan – was $69.58, now $34.79

Jennifer is looking specifically for petite-friendly options, which is a toughie when it comes to dusters. This option is more along the “sweater coat” lines, being thick but a bit shorter overall, and has a shaped waist that will help give definition to most figures. Also the light, creamy color make it a good option for late spring wear. Available in sizes 4 – 14. (It’s acrylic, which accounts for the bargainous price!)

Anne Klein Oversized Shawl Collar Overcoat – was $169, now $88.99

Another good option for duster-loving petites. The removable belt give you the option to move your perceived waistline up or down as desired, and the curved hem means this cardigan won’t hit as low on the leg as some. Available in sizes S – XL.

Whistler Sweater Coat – was $138, now $59.99

I am sorely tempted by this sweater myself, friends. On most figures, the inset waist will hit fairly high (helpful on some petite frames) and the fabric below will glide over hips and bum. This is a wool/nylon blend, so it might be a bit warm for spring/summer wear, but Jennifer must live somewhere fairly cool since she sent in her request just last week! This sweater is available in sizes XXS – XL in this lovely plum, spotty availability in oatmeal and heather gray. Also comes in plus sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for sweater coats and dusters:

  1. Free PeopleThis high-low version is all they’ve got right now, but this retailer is a go-to for dusters in the fall and winter. Keep your eyes peeled!
  2. ASOS – Lots and lots of options in addition to tonight’s pick, many currently on sale. This sheer black one looks lovely for warm weather wear.
  3. Overstock.com – No idea why, but this clearinghouse always seems to have some long cardis and dusters in stock.

    Thank you for the links, Sal! While I’ve seen you wear several different dusters on the blog, I remember them all being not really longer than knee-length. The ASOS cardigan you linked to is what they describe “midi” length, and that made me curious – is this length now ok for a cardigan? Just a couple of weeks ago I bought online a duster that is of my favorite shade of red, and beautifully tailored up top, but unexpectedly midi length on me (it was knee length on the model). What’s your take on midi length dusters? As far as I understand, one can’t really easily shorten the hem of a cardigan.

    Great picks, as always, especially the second one! I’d love to see some colorful statement necklaces, preferably clavicle-length.

    Yay! Thanks so much Sally! I love all of those picks. Now the choosing part!
    And I hail from Washington State. We’ve had a strangely dry, warmer-than-usual-but-still-cold spring, but this week it’s going to start going into the 70s on a more regular basis! I also work in an old, drafty brick building, which means sweaters are a must year round.

    thanks again!
