Why the puffer coat is a winter-styling essential

The ultimate winter warmer is now a bona-fide high-fashion hero

Fashion
Puffer street style: Veronika Heilbrunner (blue puffer), Alyssa Coscarelli and Lauren Caruso, Pernille Teisbaek, Michelle Li, Caroline Issa

Whether you’re in a city facing a cold snap or taking wintry strolls in the crisp countryside, make sure you snuggle up in one of the season’s temperature-raising puffer coats before you brave the elements. The latest styles aren’t just cozy, they lend a directional edge to your look, too. And thanks to Balenciaga’s statement styles, Moncler’s high-performance pieces, and sleek vegan ‘leather’ versions from Hungarian brand Nanushka, there’s a style for everyone.

Seek out short, boxy silhouettes and follow Michelle Li and Veronika Heilbrunner’s lead by layering a cropped coat over elongated hemlines. Or, for a practical update to the smart woolen overcoat, choose a maxi puffer to shrug on over everything from dresses to jeans and statement boots, as perfected by Pernille Teisbaek. Staying warm has never looked so cool.
