Trend Trial: We Road-Test One of Spring's Biggest Trends

Amanda Stavropoulos

I've always loved the elegance of a long, sweeping jacket—especially the drama of having it whoosh behind me as I walk down the street. A few years ago, I had a fire-engine red sass & bide version that I'd wear whenever I wanted to stand out—my friends would tell me I was 'peacocking' whenever I wore it, and I secretly loved it. Somewhere along the way, I lost my confidence, and stopped wearing pieces that turned heads. But it's time for that to change. If street style stars and celebrities can get away with wearing a dramatic jacket, then so can I. 

One of spring's biggest trends, is the duster jacket (or kimono jacket, as it's also being called). The lightweight throw-over has been embraced by the fashion crowd, and worn with practically everything, which makes it the perfect choice for our first local edition of Trend Trial—where I'll take you through major trends each season, and show you how to wear them the real-girl way.

Keep scrolling, and I'll show you three different ways to incorporate spring's most fashionable jacket into your wardrobe.
