Styling Puffer Jackets
Our coat closets are full of trenches, peacoats, and parkas. Those are the classics. But what outerwear trend is storming stores this season? If you’ve been keeping your eyes peeled, you’ve noticed that puffer jackets are everywhere. High fashion brands like Moncler, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney (and more) introduced the trend and few seasons ago. And now the downy, cozy puffers are available everywhere, from Nike to H&M and Uniqlo. And styling your puffer jacket is key.
Styling Puffer Jackets This Season
Some automatically cringe at the extra volume that puffers provide. When styled correctly, puffers are chic and sophisticated. Because they’re on the more voluminous side, our stylists suggest going form-fitted throughout the rest of your outfit. Think skinny jeans, turtlenecks, and the like. Adding a bit of a heel can elongate the leg, balancing the wideness of the coat.
Mix in some of the hottest trends to update the “retro” style of coat — think metallics, faux fur, cut-outs, and sportswear. (Not all at once, of course.) When you pair your ’80s-esque puffer with these updates, your look is instantly elevated. Go for some sleek sneakers and fitted joggers for the casual sporty look. Or opt for a longline puffer over a midi skirt and blouse at work. Interested in styling your puffer for everyday occasions? Proportions are key! Fitted pieces underneath to show off your shape, and the coat speaks for itself as the statement piece layered on top. Our stylists have put together a few pieces for inspiration below.
