Given its close resemblance to the sleeping bag, I used to think a puffer coats were the ultimate sign of giving up. It wasn’t until they were shown on the runway this season in variant shapes, sizes, and colors that I rethought the piece entirely. What was once a fashion no-no, has now made a surprisingly chic comeback! Puffer coats are the “it” jacket to wear this season for fashion and comfort’s sake.
The coat used to be out of favor, worn only in extreme temperatures or out of pure laziness. Designers started noticing there was an opportunity to re-vamp this typical style by making it look cool for Winter… I mean who doesn’t want to look highly stylish and comfortable at the same time? This style update finally embraced a real women’s casual lifestyle, shedding new light on the puffer coat.
Despite its oversized silhouette, there is actually a lot of ways you can make a puffer coat stylish. One thing I suggest is to pair the coat with pieces that show your body’s shape. It is all about wearing items that balance one another out, like for example the fitted dress I am wearing is a nice juxtaposition to the less fitted coat. The tides turn so quickly in fashion, I am definitely never judging another piece of clothing again!
