As we enter into spring, lightweight outerwear is a must, and a duster is the fashion-girl pièce de résistance. More versatile than you may imagine, they come in a variety of styles and silhouettes—choose from flowy kimonos, slinky robes and long-line trenches, all lending drama and just the right amount of coverage. Our ever-glam EIC Rachel Zoe has designed a festive palm-leaf version exclusively available in the Spring Box of Style. To get you inspired for the new season, we’ve pulled together a handful of street-style looks to demonstrate the versatility of this must-have topper. Plus, we’ve culled ten gorgeous versions at a range of price points, all perfectly on point for spring. From flamboyant to pared back, there’s a duster coat for you.
