Blogger Approved Piece: The Gingham Trench


Gingham is still having a major moment and duster coats are all that! Wearing this authentically sophisticated duster coat, I felt like a total street style star. This season's oversize jackets are straight up slaying thanks to designers that showcased them very prominently on the runways.


How To Wear
As a topper, anything really can go under a duster. From dresses to pants, shorts, skirts and jeans. I love the extreme oversize fit of mine and enjoyed the flowy action. The tie sleeves was a welcome cute detail. Here are 7 full proof ways to rock dusters this Spring.

1. What ever you are decide to ‘hide’ under your duster, it will take your look several notches up from blah to fab! If your scarves, booties and beanies are still within reach, by all means show them love paired with a Spring approved skirt and a duster. 

2. Rock your fishnets under your favorite distressed jeans and finish with a duster for a street chic look.

3. I love a clean white look in the Spring. Don’t we all? A tee, white distressed jeans and a duster over is another tres chic way to rock this trend. Pair with sneakers or sandals.

4. If you are already missing the darks of winter, then go for an all black look as against an all white. Duster up and be on your way, effortlessly might I add.

5. I don’t have nearly enough grey pieces in my closet and an all grey look would honestly be the next way I rock this duster. Tried it? How did it look?

6. Another great way to rock your dusters is with wide leg pants. I’ve worn this one with a pair of wide leg blue jeans and I loved it even more. Gosh I should have shot that look too!

7. I’m not a big fan of graphic tees but those as well as any other print items work great with dusters and make for very fun looks. 

Today’s Look
Like I said above, dusters are still all the rage this Spring. So I guess a gingham duster is the most ‘on trend’ piece of the season! Not sold on this yet? Take a look at the pictures. I’ve included quite a few images shot from different angles that show that ‘Dusting is No Longer a Chore’. It makes warding off the elements completely effortless. I Styled mine with a distressed boyfriend jeans that my older daughter has now snatched away (Ha!), a cool classic white shirt with extra long sleeves that added a tad of interest to my look and a pair of black pumps. 

Omg, I just realized this look hits about 5 trends. 
Oversize: check! Duster: check! Gingham: check!! Extra long sleeves: check! Boyfriend jeans: check! Dare I add ‘Fabulous: check check check’!

Fun Fact 
Duster coats are fun, flattering and a chic addition to any look. I read that they were originally worn by horsemen as a utility coat for the sole purpose of protecting their clothing from dust and dirt. Makes a lot of sense right?

  22. Duster coats are not only incredibly stylish and trendy, they're also a very practical choice for Spring. Here the weather has been unpredictable, one day it is raining and the other the sun is shining, we go from Summer to Autumn most days. Wearing a duster coat or a trench in that kind weather is really a very sensible choice.

    I do like the gingham pattern of your duster coat. That white shirt with flare sleeves is lovely as well. Amazing jeans and heel pairing. There is nothing more chic than a good stiletto and jean combo. I love it! Fabulous heels as always. All in all, such a gorgeous look. You look absolutely perfect dear Idu.

  52. I had no idea that was its origins. Stupidly when I think of dusters and their origins I think of the Matrix! Hehehe. I've never seen a gingham duster and I don't know why. What a fabulous pairing. I also really love your styling. That duster with the jeans are perfection together.
