We’re not quite sure when it happened, but at some point the weather went from zero to hundred real quick. We’ll give it to summer, it hung on for dear life, for as long as it could. And then all of a sudden the temperature dropped and we’re now left wondering, where autumn went to? Rather than enjoying cool autumnal breezes, it feels like we’re in the early stages of winter. And whereas usually when we’d use this time of year to show off our transitional outerwear, e.g blazers and oversized cardis, we’re now seriously considering busting out the heavy duty puffer jacket.
Not that we’re complaining too much – being one of this season’s major staples, the puffer jacket has had an lovely makeover and it’s bigger and better than ever. As seen on the AW16 catwalks oversized puffer jackets were the norm…and there’s only one way to wear it – slightly off the shoulder as seen at Balenciaga and more recently on RiRi during Paris Fashion Week.
Impractical? Yes. Sexy? Hell yes! And therein lies one of this seasons biggest fashion dilemmas – how to wear the puffer jacket while still remaining impeccably cool and collected as we navigate through our daily lives of commuting and school runs?!
But hey, it’s “fashun”, we’ll work it out…
In the meantime here’s some slightly less oversized puffer jackets that’ll make braving the wintry winds, pure pleasure.
