As we’ve already noted, one of the most prevalent street style trends seen during international F/W fashion weeks was the statement coat – with the puffer jacket emerging as one of the biggest hits, literally. With the mood being the bigger and brighter the better, the puffer jacket – once considered the domain of ski slopes – has made a huge comeback into the high-fashion scene this season.
Over-sized and exaggerated styles have been spotted on some of our favourite fashion icons from Rihanna to Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian, with stand-out colours like red, pink and metallics being particularly popular.
Given that they provide comfort and real protection against the elements, we’re totally crushing on this fashion development. If you’d like to get on board with this trend, but prefer a more understated approach, opt for a black or olive green version with a cropped or fitted silhouette. That will see you through this season, and many more to come.
