The statement puffer jacket

Given the cold snap, not to even mention the new lockdown, a warm, hooded water resistant coat is something we will all need this year.

The key is to get the shape right and to consider what you are going to wear under it.  Hoods, pockets and a longer line are all the things I am looking for.

The truth is that I want the Balenciaga puffer but I cannot justify the price.  I want a very similar style as my Calvin Klein 205w39nyc puffer (below) but in black or navy, as the shape simply works brilliantly.

This was lasts year purchase.  I have bought a few other options since but ended up selling them as nothing compared to the finish and fit on this one.  I am currently watching the preloved market to see if I can find another Calvin Klein 205w39nyc in a different colour.

So, if there is a jacket you love, always have a look preloved first to see if you can find it for less. My friend Sarah just tipped me off to the best padded jackets on sale at Marina Rinaldi


The North Face collaboration with Gucci has reinforced the key place a puffer coat takes in our wardrobe.

  2. Check out the sage green one from Sandro at the Outnet 
  3. The tan ACNE one is on my Sales list as is the Daily Paper version
  4. If money was no object then it has to be this buttermilk Bottega coat
  5. Same with the Balenciaga one, it is so expensive but such a gorgeous shape
