Whether you call them drape jackets, kimonos, or duster jackets, the idea is the same. A soft, lightweight layer that’s perfect to toss over a tank or tee for spring and summer. As a devout wearer of blazers, I like the ability they afford to “switch things up” while still looking and feeling like me. They come in so many styles, it’s also easy to match your personal style, like this pinstripe jacket that practically had my name written all over it.

I’m wearing the Babaton Kahlo Robe-Midi from Artizia (size xxs), a store that carries its own brands and tends to run petite-friendly. I opted for the midi length because I like the versatility of the length on my frame, but man, am I also scoping out the full-length version.

Also, all hail cami weather! Lace trimmed camis look so great under blazers and jackets this time of year. I’ve linked some cute ones below as well as some petite drape jacket options, and my measurements can be found here for reference. Enjoy!

  • Looks great! I tried both the navy and the brown in 00P in the Jcrew duster you’ve linked and was happy with the fit, but very unhappy with the fabric and colours so they had to go back. :(
