Duster coats may evoke images of rugged Texas law enforcement but this style of coat has in recent years been appropriated by the fashion forward.
I like how easily duster coats dress up otherwise dull outfits; they can quickly transform simple outfits—a graphic tee and dark wash denim—into chic ensembles that are perfect for a 3 a.m. Wendy’s run or for trying to blend in with the stylish brunch crowd.

I picked up two duster coats in camel last winter (one of which is still available here in charcoal gray) but am greedy so already window shopping for something new.
For those of you in the market for similar styles, this Forever 21 one looks promising (20% off now with code FRIENDS). For something a little warmer, this AYR camel hair coat may be a good choice.
