I might be back from London Fashion week for nearly a week now, but the memories of the fashion that was, have not left me. Oh no, not that quickly! One thing I noticed around Somerset House was how popular the duster coat is. The long line jacket, worn over a mini skirt, shorts or skinny jeans was the dominant look, and given that it was raining the whole time, it’s a nice Spring cover up. Colour was varied and I have to say that something neutral really plays on me. It’s easy to style, and worn with a dark colour makes it rather chic I think. But how can you get the look? Well Penneys (Primark to my UK followers) has you covered (pun intended)
Right, the first option Penneys have for you is sleeveless and white; two MEGA trends for Spring Summer 2015. Imagine this all white look on holliers in Espana? Yep, I can too. Gimme it now (Jacket, €20). Next it’s all about denim, and while this maybe not the direct definition of a duster coat, it’s long and it’s a coat and I love it (Denim jacket, €30). And then there’s my favourite; that sweet powder blue coat that screams “YOU NEED ME” (Blue coat, €28). I reckon the way to style this one is over dark denim jeans so that there is enough contrast between the blue hues.
And then all we need is….the sunshine! Keep an eye on the Penneys/Primark shop floor the above amazing collections!
