Duster coat and matching trousers

Fashion Not Only Twenty

Today I would like to talk about the duster coat, which the dictionary of La Repubblica defines as: “light fabric overcoat, for men or women, that between the end of the century XIX and the beginning of the XX was worn during the travels in diligence, and then in the car, to repair the clothes from the dust “.

Now our travels are no longer in diligence and we don’t need to protect ourselves from dust, but a light fabric overcoat is essential in every wardrobe.

Fundamental because it always has a chic tone and because the combinations are easy. Despite having several dusters in the closet what I show you today is the first with matching pants. I was a bit undecided in the purchase because of the color that goes from hazelnut to brown with dark blue stylized flowers, I don’t really like brown in winter, it seems to me a sad color, while I like it very much in summer with the tanned skin. The possibility of being able to wear it even in summer that convinced me in the purchase (and also the discounted price of 50% because of the fall / winter collection).

How to combine the duster coat and trousers

Let’s see how we can combine the duster coat and matching pants. Wearing them together is perfect. Since the spring doesn’t want to arrive, in the picture I’m wearing the suit under the velvet coat, with the duster coat tightened at the waist by the belt and under, which is glimpsed, the green sequin bra. To complete the outfit I chose a cool color for the accessories that contrasted the warm, almost golden color of the outfit: the pink bag and the pink round glasses, while the brown and gold sandals are the same colors as the duster and trousers.

In summer you can wear the suit with a black or dark blue shirt and the duster opened.

The wide-legged trousers can be matched with tops or shirts black, blue, havana, beige, brown or hot pink.

You can wear the duster coat on trousers in black, blue, beige, ivory, brown, gold and even on black jeans.

The coordinate lends itself to various interpretations, in each of which accessories are fundamental. I want to show you some other looks with this suit.

Do you have duster coats in your closet? On what occasions do you use them and with which combinations?
