Puffer Jacket: THE must-have for winter!
A piece that should definitely not be missing in this year’s winter outfit? The puffer jacket. Whether in muted colors, in bright tones or in a metallic look – the trend jacket always looks great. But it is not only because of its appearance that it is conquering our wardrobes – it is also wonderfully warm. You can find out here how you can combine the puffer jacket and what dos and don’ts there are when it comes to styling.
Why we love the puffer jacket
Warm AND stylish: everyone wants a winter jacket like this, right? Dreams come true, because the cozy puffer jacket combines both. It not only protects against cooling down in cold temperatures, but also convinces visually in countless variants. In bright colors, made of cord, plain or patterned: the selection is huge.
Depending on the style you want, choose between an oversized bomber jacket and a long down coat with a hood. Do you like it flashy? Then opt for a puffer jacket in a bright color like neon pink, or wear a jacket with a shiny vinyl look. It becomes more subtle with muted colors such as beige, black, or olive.
How did the puffer jacket get its voluminous shape? This is due to the inner lining. It consists of real down, synthetic feathers or natural fibers. Good to know: the down jacket was originally developed for mountaineers to keep them warm and dry when hiking. Another advantage is that the elastic and light material does not restrict freedom of movement – making it the ideal companion for a hike.
Elegance meets casualness
You thought fluffy jackets didn’t go with an elegant outfit? Oh but. They bring a great contrast to classy trousers, an A-line skirt, or a figure-hugging knitted dress. Tip: Leave the puffer jacket open – it looks even more casual and reveals your entire outfit. Of course, when the temperature is below zero you keep your jacket closed. Then a belt over the down coat creates a nice waist.
Tone-on-tone styles are also currently popular: For example, you can go completely on red and combine a red long-sleeved shirt, a maxi skirt, and a clutch with a red puffer jacket. Golden jewelry and large sunglasses create fancy vibes. This outfit goes with stylish kitten heels as well as with white sneakers. A perfect evening look!
The vegan alternative to the down jacket
As already mentioned at the beginning, the down jacket does not have to be made of real down – there are now great alternatives, many of which are also suitable for allergy sufferers. Many labels are now using organic cotton, recycled polyester, hemp, cork, linen, or TENCEL ™. Another down alternative? Milkweed. Never heard of it? Then be careful: Milkweed is a milkweed that comes from North America. From these fibers are obtained that are not only extremely light, breathable, and hypoallergenic, they can also warm you perfectly at sub-zero temperatures. Mega right?
