Now it’s true that on this blog cosiness is a key theme and that autumn is a wonderful time of year for enjoying this. So obviously it is great news that this year the puffy puffer coat is back in a big way and dominated the autumn/winter fashion shows. A staple garment in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, now the puffer coat is set to be more popular than ever and since it is wonderfully adapted to keeping out those fierce winds and icy chills, this can only be a good thing.
If you are looking for a gorgeous puffer coat this season then you’ll be simply spoiled for choice since they’re everywhere from high street to haute couture and everything in between. Having spent seasons shivering in an inadequate leather bomber jacket, the news that the puffer is back is going to be celebrated by every fashion conscious person! To help you decide where you should be looking for the perfect puffer coat, there’s a small guide here to help you pick the one that is just right for you this season.
Cosy and in a gorgeous charcoal grey colour with a hood and a bit of faux-fur thrown in to boot, this Everlast puffer is going to get you through the season stylishly and at a bargain price too. Also available in a stunning winter white and black (although the black is more expensive for some reason), you can get this cool puffer for just €18 from Sports Direct. Wear with some skinny jeans and your favourite trainers for a sports luxe look, or swap the trainers for chic ankle boots for a city style that is pretty much impeccable.
Puffa is the original brand that came out with the puffer ‘duvet-coat’ idea so if you’re looking for a quintessentially British puffer look that had fans like Princess Di, then invest in one of their designs which are available at one of our favourite online retailers ASOS. This puffa in powder pink is particularly gorgeous and will add just the right pop of colour on those dark days. Since it is oversized and bulky, wear with a correspondingly bulky and cosy winter knit for that cool baggy trend that we all love. With the puffa branding and a cool collar, you’ll love those cold days when you can wear this pretty puffer.
If you like to push the fashion boundaries no matter what you wear, then why not combine another key trend of shiny metallic when you choose your puffer coat. If you’re looking to pick up a puffer coat off the rack of a high street store anyway, then head to H&M where you can find puffers in dazzlingly bright colours like royal blue, canary yellow and this fabulous silver chrome. In the classic style with slouch shoulders and a big collar, this coat looks far more expensive than it actually is; since it is from H&M you can get it for around €40 which is a complete bargain considering how on trend it is and the fact that you will look trendy and be toasty when wearing it!
