Can we talk duster coats for a minute?
I purchased this specific duster coat last year (wearing it here: Lace-Up Bodysuit & Duster Coat) and it is one of my go-to pieces. Duster coats seem to be everywhere and I don’t think or at least I hope, they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
So what is a duster coat?
It’s basically just a long, breezy, lightweight coat that can easily be thrown on. By adding this extra layer, it quickly makes any look more stylish. Duster coats usually reach about mid-calf or some even graze the floor. So which ever length you prefer, it works.
Now, I say lightweight, but a duster coat can actually be thicker and practical for the cold weather. This long camel one I have is a dream. I only wish Arizona allowed me the opportunity to wear it more often.
Duster coats are the perfect piece to have on hand when you have nothing to wear. This look here is pretty basic. A black lace blouse and a pair of (really comfy) jeans. Adding the duster coat gave it an extra little something. I love the way it draws more attention to the beautiful bell sleeves on this top. It brings an added chicness to the look. The structured style of this coat makes it easy to pair with a more dressed-up look as well. Being able to stay warm without compromising style is always ideal.
I love the juxtaposition of dressing up a pair of relaxed fit denim. This pair from Unpublished was the perfect pair to do that. I’ve mentioned my love for girlfriend denim, but I’ve found a lot of girlfriend jeans to be made of stiffer denim. Which I’m totally not opposed too, but when I received this pair, I was welcomed with this lived-in, incredibly soft denim that made me rethink the stiff denim. You know how when you wear jeans and you come home all you want to do is take them off and throw on a pair of sweat pants? I absolutely did not feel like that with these. I managed to wear them all day without even really thinking about it.
It’s so nice when you feel comfortable in a pair of well fitting denim.
