A Duster Coat Is the Answer to All Your Winter Wardrobe Problems

When it comes to outerwear, a duster coat is a timeless staple—and this season, brands like Mother of Pearl, Apparis, and Maje have made them more versatile than ever. Sure, you have your puffers, faux-fur bombers, and teddy jackets, but a longer coat reigns supreme as a stylish cold-weather cover-up (not to mention, every inch counts when cropped flares and winter dresses are on heavy rotation).

The distinction between a duster and any other coat is length—and while it doesn’t have to be floor-grazing, it should hit at least a few inches below the knee. Either way, given its easy-to-style nature, a duster coat regularly does the rounds in the chicest celebrity looks. Think of the Olsen twins—long-time fans of the style—who like theirs jet black and below the ankle, or Kate Middleton, who keeps it polished with a simple camel-colored duster.

And although the style has a rep for erring on the side of classic, even trend-forward celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Hailey Bieber have worked belted or oversized duster coats into their wardrobes.

The takeaway? Big chunky sweaters and thick layers aren’t always easy to pull off—but throw on a duster coat and you’ll never have to worry about looking like you just rolled out of bed (even if you just did). Ahead, nine duster coats worth adding to cart out right now.
