Long, dark, and handsome, dusters are *the moment.*
People have been wearing dusters for ages, but despite being tailor-made for layering and available in a variety of finishes from knits to leather, dusters tend to quietly trend without ever going fully mainstream. (We heartily disagree with this. A duster for one and all! May 2023 be the year of the duster!) Although the piece is incredibly versatile, figuring out how to style a duster coat can be a bit of a headache, especially since proportions and balance come into play.
However, this cool, effortless layer will fit right in with your weekly wardrobe rotation, and there are dozens of ways to style a duster in 2023, from super casual to ultra-chic. To get you started, here are 10 very fresh duster coat outfit ideas to try this spring.
With Baggy Clothing
A great duster plays well with volume and you can pull those dramatic lines into what you wear under your duster as well. Wide-leg pants and a loose crop top keep things looking effortless. Pop on a platform heel to add a touch of glamour.

To Soften a Bold Print
If you’ve got a bold dress, jumpsuit, or matching set languishing in your closet that you can’t quite find the courage to wear out, a duster might just be the push you need to finally break it out. Dusters can swallow up whatever you’ve got on underneath, which isn’t always a pro, but in the case of a super bold print, a neutral duster might be just what you need.
