Perhaps the comfiest invention known to man, the puffer jacket reigns over all other outerwear once winter arrives. Whether you opt for a cropped iteration to wear with trainers and athleisure or a long, trailing duster paired with jeans and hiking boots, the puffer is the ultimate clothing chameleon.
The colour spectrum is also something to behold, with puffer jackets available in just about every hue. From the neon brights of Nike and North Face to the all-black stylings of Balenciaga and Acne Studios, the puffer jacket remains unchallenged in the fashion space. In 2020, Moncler x JW Anderson breathed new life into the style with a collection of primary-coloured coats in a spotted satin finish.
Similarly, Prada turned heads with its selection of padded blazers on the pre-fall catwalks, while Louis Vuitton kept things classic with a series of quilted jackets. Heading into 2021, the style looks like it will continue its domination, with a variety of styles hitting the shops just in time for the New Year.
