Usually during fashion week, street style stars put fashion before practicality, oftentimes wearing fur in the summer and bare legs in a blizzard. But this season, functionality is in fashion, and puffer coats were everywhere on the streets of Paris, London, Milan. They ranged in size and color and materials.
The key to making this look work in a high-fashion way is how you style it. Try pairing the sporty piece with a sleek slip dress, or try distressed step-hem jeans. The mix of feminine and sporty pieces is the coolest way to dress right now.
So, for late fall season and winter too, the puffer jacket is the cold-weather marriage between style and sensibility.
