The best puffer coats and jackets to invest in now (and wear forever)

Posted by for Fashion

The puffer coat is here to keep you super snug this winter – these are the best styles to invest in.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to stock up on all the wondrous winter goodies to keep you toasty and stylish. When it comes to being as snug as a bug, no piece of outerwear can truly compete with the puffer jacket. Luckily for us the high street is packed full of padded styles and it fits right into our need for comfort and protection right now.

And it isn’t just the high street that recognised that we might need to cocoon ourselves over the colder season. Way back in February, the catwalk shows across the four major fashion cities were full of gorgeous padded and quilted coats to keep us well protected from the elements. 

Puffers regained popularity last winter and the trend has stayed strong this year, making this one to invest in right now. When looking for the perfect puffer there are lots of things to consider. 

From super bulky cropped styles, to bold colours and prints, there are so many options out there.

If you’re looking for super levels of snugness, then a down-filled puffer coat or jacket offers a solid layer of protection from the elements. And don’t forget to check the waterproof abilities of your final choice too. While there are plenty of fashion-forward styles this season in a host of interesting and stylish fabrications, make sure your purchase will match what you need it for. 

The puffer coat is certainly back with a bang and we can’t wait to get wrapped up in these key styles.
