How To Style An Oversized Puffer Jacket

As Winter is just around the corner,

this is the perfect time to prepare for the cold weather and puffer jackets/coats are the obvious choice to add to your wardrobe. But they can be problematic to style.

For me, a puffer jacket is a must and I own quite a few which vary in colour, size and thinness. The colours I have vary from black, white to fluoride green and mustered yellow.

Puffer jacket has always been and will continue to be the first choice of Winter wear. They are often the right weight, holds warmth well, doesn’t crinkle, is water proof and of course extremely comfortable.

But when choosing what type of puffer jacket I should wear, it largely depends on a few factors;

All of these factors play a major role in my choice of puffer jacket for an event. Therefore, when you are next at the shops looking for a puffer jacket, keep the above questions in the back of your mind as they will guide you towards the best choice.

Every year, fashion houses are trying to modify the puffy jacket and add their own take on it. This year is all about comfort and thankfully, the bigger the better! An oversized puffer jacket is a hit this season and guess what.. There are no limits in your choice of colour or shape.

A Guide – How To Choose Oversize Puffer Jacket !!!

  1. When deciding on a puffer jacket, your choice should strongly depend on the weather in your area. If you get regular snow, make sure the material of the jacket is water resistant. If you live in an area where the wind can get quite high, make sure your puffer jacket has a wind proof material inside and if the temperature drops below -10 degrees, ensure your puffer jacket includes good insulation.
  2. If you can’t afford multiple puffer jackets, you should consider your occupation. That means if you are a student or working in a very relaxed environment, the world is your oyster and you can choose any colour or shape. However if you are working in a more conservative environment,  you might want to choose pastel based colours or a dark grey, charcoal, brown or deep blue theme – all of which will look magnificent in the City streets lined with snow.
  3. The length of the puffer jacket is something to consider as well. If you live in a very cold Winter environment, you should opt for a jacket which is a touch longer just to make sure that your kidneys and knees are protected from the cold draft.

Bella Hadid’s style is one of the brightest right now and she rebelliously combines different clothing styles into to a very modern and edgy ensemble. A small sized coral / blue puffer jacket is tatefully blended into a very strict and simple outfit with classically fitted high waisted jeans and a logo Fendi jumper. The old school bag and boots bring some retro vibes to the whole appearance which makes it quite interesting and memorable. Pay close attention to the way she is wearing the jacket: the sleeves are rolled up and jacket is wide open and unzipped. Using this trick of mixing and matching opposite styles (in this case; sporty, vintage and classical) we can remove any similarity to other styles and create some individuality.

Who said pink!? Gigi Hadid did! And not only did she say it, she regularly wears it and looks absolutely magnificent! An enormously fluffy blanket that turned to be a puffer coat was a great idea to bring a cheerful outfit of golden culottes and a cropped baby pink jumper. She not only looks warm and comfortable but very trendy too due to the gold & pink combination, white glasses and huge puffer jacket. It instantly attracts your eye and acts as an unforgettable statement piece. The good news is that everyone can easily recreate this look by changing their colours and/or materials but nothing can change the fact that culottes look great with a long puffer coat.

If you think high heels can only be worn with feminine clothes, have a close look at Rihanna and Kim Kardashian! They pair very flattering footwear with sporty and military styles. They have a history of building trendy outfits by combining high waisted trainers or army pants

accompanied with pointed shoes and a huge puffer jacket . To ensure that all pieces are working well together, color matching to the remainder of the look is essential. Adding some sprinkles of glam to a very casual and simple sporty looks make this combination extremely practical, comfortable and trendy! Adding some glamorous details really can bring the look to another level of style and fashion.

This may surprise some of you but evening dresses can also be worn with puffer jackets. A perfect example regularly worn by Rihanna in one of her brightest and most daring outfits. Upon first look, this beautiful silky dress and puffer coat may have been paired accidentally. But if you look carefully, you will notice that the colors were chosen with a deliberate purpose to complement each other and the baseball hat was added to dress the outfit down. Minimalistic heels, fine jewelry and cat eye shaped sunglasses put the whole piece together and completes this bohemian sport chic evening outfit.

Metallic puffer jackets have been a favourite of celebrities and bloggers for a long time as they are easy to style and look gorgeous when worn. Kendall Jenner combines one with a pair of tight leather pants to make a rebellious and brutal outfit. She has allowed the jacket to be the most important piece in the whole ensemble and complements it with simple colors like grey and black. The addition of  the silky scarf is another statement piece used to support the jacket.
