What is a Puffer Jacket?

by Shanead Marques
Puffer Jackets have become popular, trendy and reliable winter favorites over the last few years, and not without reason.
 
Filled with either down or synthetic materials, puffer jackets are excellent insulators, which means that they work to retain your heat and regulate body temperature no matter the outside weather.
 
Thanks to the Down or Synthetic filling, puffer jackets have a unique blend of reliable warmth and lightweight wear, making them an easy-to-wear, easy-to-pack and easy-to-store product for everyone.
 
Puffer jackets also come in a variety of styles and cuts, meaning you can layer your outfit around the puffer jacket you choose. For example, a thinner puffer jacket may be perfect as a middle layer for warmth, protected by a water resistant outer shell. Conversely, a thicker puffer vest may be all you need on crisp mornings atop a moisture-wicking long-sleeve tee.
 
 
With an easy-to-spot, signature quilted aesthetic, puffer jackets have undoubtedly become trendy staples in any true winter wardrobe. With a diverse range of features across styles, such as hooded options, weight, length, accessories, pockets and color palettes, personalizing your puffer jacket to an outfit or seasonal trend is simple and stylish.
 
Not sure how to wear and style your winter puffer jacket as an everyday piece for the season?
Here are 5 easy, on-trend ways to wear your jacket with cool confidence.
 
  • If you go for a longer puffer jacket, jump into the trend of belting it around the waist atop a causal, cute, neutral outfit. The belt will help you retain a flattering figure, while the neutrals help keep your overall outfit understatedly stylish.
 
  • Look for jackets with fur or faux fur trimming. This trim is super in-style lately, and immediately adds a level of elegance and fashion to the piece, telling the world that this is part of your outfit, not just a throw-on.
 
 
  • If the weather is slightly warmer, keep your puffer jacket undone, revealing your outfit underneath. This keeps you warm enough and put-together, without compromising either your comfort or your style for the day.
 
  • Wear pants that aren’t baggy, such as leggings, when wearing a puffer jacket to combat the “puffy” look of the jacket up the top. Similarly, this will flatter your figure subtly but effectively.
 
 
Match your color scheme to your outfit.
The most reliable way to truly tie your puffer jacket into your casual, cute outfit is to ensure each piece shares a common base color or palette. Opt for natural, diluted hues or similar understated colors that naturally complement one another.
