Coats are a staple in every wardrobe and this season, the cosy Puffa jacket is topping our winter wish list...
Say hello to the puffa jacket.
Super snug and cosy it’s the latest in a long line of nineties trends to make a return to both the catwalks and our wardrobes. The puffa jacket joins our already bulging #tbt inspired wardrobe and is topping our best winter coats list. And much like many of the other nineties pieces to be given the revival treatment, the puffa jacket is essentially just luxe sportswear.
Athleisure with an edge, the puffa looks as good off-duty as it does to the office. First spotted on the AW’16 catwalks at Balenciaga, Stella McCartney and Marques Almeida, this padded cover-up is having a chic comeback for 2017 too. With designers opting for a more refined quilted shape – Chanel, Altuzzara and all opting for rich detailing, prints, colours and textures.
Providing us mere mortals with 101 options at prices that won’t break the bank.
Hooded Puffa Jackets
From statement oversized coats (we’ve got our eye on a bright red Balenciaga dupe) to sleek, streamlined jackets, there’s a puffa jacket style to suit everyone. Available in allyour classic neutrals (black, grey, navy and co) to bold brights – think everything from dusky pink and mustard yellow to khaki green and shiny silver. As per, Zara has one of the biggest selections but don’t forget Topshop, Urban Outfitters and New Look for your puffa jackets fix too. A cute hooded puffa is certain to keep you cosy and is a really practical option on gross rainy days.
Long Puffa Jackets
Rewrite duvet days with a long puffa. As not only doesa puffa score point in both the sartorial and practical terms – hallelujah! When the chill really sets in nothing will keep you cosy like a snug puffer. After all you are essentially wearing a human shaped duvet – ideal for days when leaving the warm comfort of your bed is particularly problematic. Plus, the hood and waterproof material means you are prepared for any unexpected downpours. Yep, this is a coat your mum would definitely approve of. Urban Outfitters and ASOS both have maxi styles available which are guaranteed to keep you snugger than a bug in a rug.
