During my junior year of high school, I had a minor obsession with duster sweaters. I mean, they were the thing to wear. I remember spending an entire paycheck from my lifeguarding job on one particular amazing duster sweater from Free People and then proudly parading around the halls of my high school in it, thinking I was so freakin’ cool. Sure, other students stepped on it when I sat down in class, and the bottom got super dirty. But I loved it.
Now, fast-forward 12 years and dusters are back with a vengeance. (Though this time, I’m more after a duster coat than a sweater.) I’ve spent the past few weeks admiring them on Suki Waterhouse, Victoria Beckham, Kylie Jenner and cool girls around the office.
These are the ones I’d like to get my hands on…
Studio Long Loose Fit Trenchcoat, Zara, £99.99
It’s duster meets trench with this lightweight classic. I can just imagine wrapping up in this on those chilly summer nights in London.
Selena Klein Coat, All Saints, £298
This luxe All Saints version would be perfect for nights out now and would easily last through October.
Cream Check Duster Coat, River Island, £60
The print on this duster would be just the thing to add a stylish statement to an otherwise simple look.
Duster Coat, ASOS, £60
With its navy colour and shape, this style would go with everything. Plus, it’s easy on the wallet.
Check Print Throw On Coat, Topshop, £75
I absolutely adore this easy, light-grey coat and can already see myself throwing it on over my favourite pastel pieces.
Unfortunately, I can’t have them all because I also need to eat and pay my TV bill. So, which one should I buy?
