Now the temperature has dropped it’s the perfect time to invest in outerwear – and this cosy coat trend is one to embrace, pronto.
There’s nothing better than a practical piece that’s also on-trend – so we on the fashion desk are rejoicing that the puffer is back for its fourth season at the top of the coats charts.
You probably have a plain black or navy version knocking around in your wardrobe already, and that’s most definitely not redundant this year. But for a look that’s less Sporty Spice and more grown up, try a splash of rich colour, a longer length or a nipped-in waist – as seen at A.W.A.K.E. Mode, Chanel, Burberry, Chloe and Christopher Kane for autumn/winter 2019. Trust us, you won’t regret it when the temperatures plummet even further.
All the warmth without sacrificing any style points – we’re sold!
So without further ado, here’s our pick of the best puffer coats currently available online.
