Follow Celeb Style with a trusty Duffle

We’re officially in the first week of May yet for many of us it still feels like the depths of winter, and that means your trusty duffle coat should still be taking pride of place in your wardrobe. It’s perfect for this kind of weather, providing a welcome barrier against the wind and rain as you carefully conceal your spring outfits underneath, so you can still bring a bit of sunshine into your life without getting drenched in the process. And the best part about the duffle? It’s a huge hit with celebs too.

Celebrities of all kinds have long been associated with the good old duffle coat, giving it a stylish and fashionable edge along with its hugely practical nature. Just think about who’s been spotted wearing it over the years—everyone from film heavyweights like Clint Eastwood, Dudley Moore and Robert De Niro to home-grown detective extraordinaire Jonathan Creek, and let’s not forget that most famous of duffle wearers, Paddington Bear. It isn’t just the men either—just last month Alexa Chung was spotted in yet another high-end duffle, and other famous fans include Cheryl Cole, Agyness Deyn and Michelle Williams, all of whom have been able to put a luxe stamp on the humble duffle coat.

It isn’t hard to see why duffle coats have such celeb status. Not only are they infinitely practical and ideal for the downpours we’ve been experiencing of late, but they can work with any outfit imaginable to offer something for all occasions. They can be dressed up or dressed down to suit your mood, and with plenty of different colours to choose from there’s something for everyone. The duffle has stood the test of time and should be a staple of your wardrobe, so follow celeb style and bring out your trusty duffle with pride.
