Straight off the runway and onto the street, these coats are the trend to don this spring according to Gigi and friends. No, not the bomber jacket. The duster is an effortless must-have this season that’s both versatile and trend-driven. And if you learn anything living in an indecisive climate, it’s the importance of a good coat. Layer it on with jeans and a roll-neck for a smart casual look or over a knitted dress for a sportier feel as seen at Public School’s SS16 runway show. The possibilities are endless with this one…
Duster? Check. Stripes? Check? Pyjama style? Check. Kendall Jenner managed to nail three spring trends with one outfit. Wearing a striped duster with matching high-rise trousers by Sally LaPointe, Kendall hopped off a plane at Paris in maximum comfort and style in this relaxed silhouette. The Céline trainers helped of course but if this look is too Nineties for your taste, you could forego the matching trousers and opt for your go-to denim skinnies to add a pop of colour. This lightweight duster will take you from spring right through to summer and even winter as it’s the perfect layering piece. Win.
Proving that a duster is the perfect maternity wear, Chrissy Teigen stole the show on Super Bowl Sunday in her M.i.h. Jeans denim coat. If you want to wear denim head-to-toe, this is how to do it. Chrissy pulled off the duster with ease in a curve (and bump) hugging dress that would make Kim Kardashian envious. The fitted dress prevented the duster from swamping her, making sure she didn’t look much bigger than she is. The model kept the accessories to a minimum, opting for just a pair of aviator sunglasses to stop the look from coming across as tacky.
It’s no secret that we’re fans of Gigi’s street style and this look is #goals. Keeping on trend with her winter white A.L.C. duster coat, Gigi looked chic and sophisticated on the streets of Paris. By pairing her coat with distressed, thigh-baring jeans and her Karl Lagerfeld Robot pouch, Gigi managed to make the look more age appropriate and youthful but this coat would work just as well with a more fluid silhouette such as culottes and loafers.
Selena’s style just keeps getting better and better and this date night look doesn’t disappoint. Teaming a knitted high-neck jumper with a suede duster from Wes Gordon, the classic coat is kept modern with her frayed denims while her strappy Jimmy Choos bring the entire outfit from daytime to nighttime. If you wanted to take this look one step further for evening you could swap out the jeans and jumper for an on-trend midi length slip dress, although we suggest going for a pair of stark white trainers instead of heels to truly beat the fash pack.
