Under Wraps: The Investment Puffer Jackets To Brave The Elements In

Nothing encourages us to rethink our sartorial choices quite like a sudden drop in temperature. A sudden onset of wind, rain and frost calls for smarter outfit choices that we can brave the elements in, and how better to do so than in a tried-and-true puffer jacket? Our latest styles have been meticulously crafted from responsible materials and generously filled with recycled down, making them a considered wardrobe staple to cherish. Irresistibly cosy, thanks to their plump shape, not only are puffers the most practical winter style, but undeniably one of the coolest.

Our heightened appreciation for daily walks last year saw a resurgence in hiking-wear, and the trend has shown no signs of wavering. Oversized and long-line silhouettes became key as comfort became a priority, and this year, our favourite styles envelope their wearers to create an easy yet confident statement. It’s worth noting that puffer jackets are timeless too. Staples like the Tessa – which sits just above the knee and is fit with a hood for added protection – come in selections of black and khaki for the utmost versatility. For added intrigue, the reversible Tessa transforms from subdued taupe to dusty blue in one swift motion.

Elsewhere, the Wren, with its elegant overturned collar, is a puffer that feels as smart as its woolen adversary. With its quilts sewn in a geometric formation throughout, the design is minimal but utterly chic. When styled with jeans, a comfy jumper, and trainers it offers a polished look for weekend city slickers; and when styled with tailored trousers, a printed blouse and some heeled boots, it’s ready for the office commute.

Unlike the Wren and Tessa, the Esme comes in a slightly shorter and wider shape. With a choice of navy or light blue, it feels particularly sporty, thanks to its drawstring hood and funnel neck shape. The Lydia, meanwhile, is characterised by a contemporary cropped length and subdued grey shade that lends itself well to urban, street-style looks.

Finally, don’t make the mistake of assuming puffers have no place in after-dark dressing. A luxurious leather gilet places a spin on the classic, channeling the same tough appeal one would expect from a leather biker. Shrug it on over a knitted polo neck jumper, or for evening soirees, wear it over a printed midi dress to add an enviably fashion-forward edge to your look.
