It's Time to Meet the Evolution of the Duster Coat

It's not the first (or last) time we've talked about the Italian bombshell street style It girls and designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio. Their brand Attico brought about some trends that made us second-guess pieces that we may have never worn again and made us think about trends (like pyjama dressing) that we'd never thought we'd wear on the street. Attico, meaning penthouse in Italian, radiates subtle sexiness and bold character with its signature piece—the silk robe. It's time to meet the evolution of the utilitarian duster coat and say hello to the sleek satin robe.

With a plunging neckline, cinched waist, and thigh split, there's not much else needed to make this piece stand out from the crowd. Don't fret about having to wear this on its own though. From pairing with classic denim jeans to statement gold earrings, there's a high chance you already own the basics we'd style the robe with. Irrespective of price points, we like to invest in pieces that are versatile season to season, day to night, office to bar. With five looks below, don't blame us for wanting one of each. As the fashion duo says themselves, "Each piece will teach, too: how to make thrown together appear dressed up, dressed up feel everyday, and how to make every entrance feel like the entrance."

Keep scrolling to see how the Italians have styled the satin robe and to shop the look.

Style Notes: A short silk robe with detailing is all the more glamorous. Slicked-back hair and a pair of beautiful heels are an essential match.

Style Notes: Layer a embellished sheer top underneath the robe, keep the heels classic, and add statement jewellery.

Style Notes: Go bold and opt for a statement print. Let the robe do all the talking and pair with basic heels and minimal jewellery.

Style Notes: Pastel colours for spring work well with this trend. You can't go wrong offsetting the robe with a white tee and classic blue denim.
