HOW TO WEAR PUFFER JACKETS FOR AW17

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 15 October 2017

As a hallmark of 90s streetwear, the puffer jacket has enjoyed a resurgence of late. For AW17, it's the style to rival all other outerwear options, having been reinvented and brought out in a number of popping colours and prints. Check out the best ways to wear it, right here.

Classic combo

When it comes to picking a coat for autumn/winter, a simple black puffer is a failsafe option. It’ll keep you warm and nicely complete any cosy ’fit you have in mind. Throw on a camel jumper for a slight colour contrast and team with pinstripe trousers for a refined vibe.

Don a Gosha Rubchinskiy-style football scarf to show that you’re sartorially well versed, and a pair of Vans Old Skool trainers to keep your whole getup casual and classic.

Standout stripes

Alongside co-ords, the double-denim look has lost its embarrassing reputation and been given the go-ahead by the stylish lot. To cleverly cover up this season, pair a denim shirt with a white half-zip top and a colourblock puffer jacket.

The trick is to opt for a coat in subdued hues so that your layers aren’t competing for attention. Keep your accessories minimal, too – go for a striped belt that matches your Nike Air Max 97 kicks for a strong finish.

Peculiar patterns

When it comes to silhouettes, puffer jackets really stand out. If eye-catching garms are particularly your thing, make like Conor McGregor and choose one with a repeated text print (albeit one that isn't NSFW). Go bold all over and style your jacket with a vibrant striped jumper.

Pare down your top half with dark-coloured trews, but maintain the print hype by opting for a pair in a windowpane check. Stay sharp by wearing neutral-coloured trainers on foot.
