Street Style: The Pinstripe Duster Coat Decoded

The duster coat, aka. the trench/mac hybrid that’s been storming the catwalks and style blogs over the past few months, is now touching down on the high street in a big way. 

Part trench, part loose cover-up, its flattering lightweight fit and chic mid-thigh length makes it the perfect spring style solution in this inter-season weather.

While muted blue and pretty pastel-hued dusters are everywhere, we’ve got our eyes on a punchy pinstripe version for our next statement coat – just like street styler Mel’s.

Looking perfectly on trend in her black and white Marks & Spencer pinstripe number, Mel teamed her duster with boyish Zara brogues and silky cigarette trousers from Topshop for the ultimate inter-season day look.

If you want to nab spring’s it-coat like Mel, ASOS do some fab spring dusters in a range of flattering shades, or why not go bold and rock River Island‘s cream check duster coat (£60) for extra style points.
