Several stars have taken to the duster coat trend and with good reason: Not only do these lightweight toppers pair well with bandage dresses, as demonstrated by Khloe Kardashian above, but they can help elevate the style of any outfit. It doesn’t matter if you’re layering one over a fancy dress or of-the-moment biker shorts. We like this Coryn Rose Gold Silky Duster Coat ($157; houseofcb.com).

Leather Trench Coats
A twist on the timeless look, a leather trench coat will help you standout from the masses. Go with a classic cognac, like this Jones New York Leather Belted Trench ($400; macys.com), or bold like Blake in a red patent leather (check out FIND Women’s Red Patent Trench Coat, $116; amazon.com). Either way, you can’t go wrong!

Investing in printed outwear may not seem like a logical spend, but a playful piece, like this Dries Van Noten Jacquard Lurex Collar Jacket ($1,500; saksfifthavenue.com), can add pizzazz to even the simplest outfit. To make your coat really standout, wear a monochromatic look underneath. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, go ahead and mix those prints.
