How To Style A Puffer Jacket

Puffer jackets are considered wardrobe staples for colder seasons and these oversized quilted jackets can be statement pieces in themselves. Lately, we’ve seen them not only during fashion week but all over Instagram on street style bloggers. They come in different styles, cuts, and colors, and can be styled in multiple ways depending on your mood, fashion style, and occasion in the colder months. I recently styled one of my favorite long puffers on Instagram, check it out here. If you are curious about the hype of puffer coats, I’m sharing how to style the puffer jacket to give you some inspiration.

What Is A Puffer Jacket

Also known as down jackets, puffer jackets are made with geese or duck feathers. That’s what makes them so incredibly warm and insulating throughout the winter season. That, in addition to durable synthetic fibers for added synthetic insulation. Other than these main materials, puffer jackets are very versatile when it comes to fabrics, colors, thicknesses, geometric shapes, zippers, hoods, and so on. In today’s modern world of fashion, there are plenty of puffer jackets made for women specifically, with extra details that accentuate and support the female body.

Are Puffer Jackets In Style

Puffer jackets are always in style, especially ones made with high-quality water-repellent or resistant materials. If you live in a colder climate – think New York, Chicago, Denver, or Seattle – a stylish puffer jacket is pretty much a cold-weather staple in your daily winter wardrobe. P.S: Look for one with a faux fur-lined hood for extra warmth. I’ve seen a lot of celebrities breaking out the trusted puffer coats this season. I’m in love with the puffer jacket street style Emily Ratajkowski, Hailey Bieber (in North Face), and Jennifer Lopez have all been wearing this season. So much inspo for winter coats this season.

This puffer jacket is a longer length and is such a great option for colder days. I styled it with my favorite classic leggings from Luluemon and Target hoodie. I finished off the look with a cream-knit beanie and my Sam Edelman black combat boot for under $150.

This cropped metallic puffer is by Mackage and has been a favorite for the past few years. I love the tweed inset paired with black leggings. It’s such a great jacket and can be dressed up or a great jacket to wear for hitting the slopes. I wanted to add some dimension to the look so I added my favorite black and white striped turtleneck.

Styling this long puffer again, but wanted to change up the look a bit. I changed out my leggings for some faux leather leggings by Commando and styled them with these Splendid winter boots and a Target sweater.

If you think a puffer jacket needs to be only casual or worn on a ski trip, those days are long gone. A puffer is an essential winter staple that can be worn so many ways. Below, I’m sharing a few tips on what to wear with your puffer jacket.

A faux leather pant or legging paired with a combat boot is a great option for a styled winter look under your puffer coat. You can add a ball cap or beanie to be a bit more casual.

Classic Trousers

You cannot go wrong with classic trousers even under a puffer jacket. Especially a knee-length puffer. It not only makes the look a bit more casual for street style but paired with sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt is another great option for styling your puffer jacket.

A monochrome all-black, white, or camel winter outfit will elevate your look no matter if it’s casual or dressy. In the winter adding the same toned scarves, gloves, and hats will blend the outfit. You can even add a pop of color to your accessories if you need a pop to your neutral colors.
