When it comes to layering must-haves, there's one jacket style that's reigned supreme (in addition to classics like army and moto jackets): the duster. While this below-the-knee jacket is certainly not going anywhere anytime soon, there's actually a fresh and more forward iteration of the silhouette that's taking over the street style scene.
As Gigi Hadid has been showcasing recently, extra-long coats that quite literally sweep the floor are starting to gain major traction in the style world. We're seeing lighter-weight silk styles that resemble classic dusters, but we're also spotting heavier coat picks on other fashion A-listers like Hailey Baldwin and Alessandra Ambrosio.
And we totally get it, this trend isn't for the faint of heart as it's certainly out there (and not always the most practical if the coat drags on the city streets), but it's certainly a chic and cool way to wear outerwear this season.
