Yes, we’re still wearing our puffer jackets this season, except in a different way. The key is to find a puffer style that varies in print, texture or colour. With puffer jackets continuing to up the fashion stakes, you no longer need to wait for camping or hiking days to rock one.
Say goodbye to wearing your puffer with leggings, and welcome the new range of styles, which now come in different designs and finishes, from longline to belted styles, and beautiful printed designs. Longer puffers are ideal for curvier hips, while petites should opt for shorter finishes.

Here’s how to wear your puffer jacket this season:
The stylish puffer jacket
The puffed jacket is undeniably a perfect wind breaker. However, it’s made more stylish than ever to suit everyday wear. This slightly shorter crop looks good on all figure types and a great winter investment for those really chilly days.
A belt is a must-have accessory this season. Why? Because a sleek belt is ideal for nipping in the waist to create an hourglass shape, while adding interest to the simplest of outfit. In fact, it can glam up almost any look.
A pleated skirt is a perfect piece you can instantly dress up or down, along with your puffer jacket. Not only is it a great go-to for easy style, but it’s also perfect for flattering your silhouette. Make sure to wear a shorter, minimalist puffer jacket with a pleated skirt.
Something as simple as a midi knit dress with belt detail, looks fabulous with a puffer, and will ooze fashion confidence. To get the most out of your outfit, opt for ankle sock boots.
Update the 70’s style with a puffer instead of the traditional check shirt. Corduroys are back on trend and what better way to dress them up this season, than with a stylish puffer?
