You probably have a plain black or navy version knocking around in your wardrobe already, but the puffer 2.0 is less Sporty Spice and more street style chic. As seen at A.W.A.K.E. Mode, Chanel, Burberry, Chloe and Christopher Kane the latest grown up styles come in a rich colours, long lengths and even offer a more structured silhouette (yes, it is possible).
