The Puffer Coat Chic Come Back
The Puffer Coat is no longer just about functionality and practicality. You have to stay warm and look cute at the same time, especially with all the recent crazy snow storms occurring both the east/west coast. Experts are saying it’s making a chic comeback this Fall/Winter from designer houses to high street fashion. It’s accessible from all price points and the options are endless. They come short, long, fur trimmed, floral print, appliqued, leather accents and even in velvet fabric, as seen from Vogue. With that said, there is no proof of this trend slowing down.
A couple of months ago, I was in search for a down coat for a family trip to Japan. I was hoping to find a coat that’s lightweight and warm that went with every outfit. I was planning to bring only one outerwear and traveling with the family puts a limit on suitcase space. After trying many styles with no luck, I came across a Mackage Leather Trim Hooded Down Parka in navy on the sale rack at Nordstrom! Score! This coat is amazing! It had all the qualities I was looking for and its made well qualities will last a long time. The shape is fitted without feeling like a “sausage” and the leather belt creates a waist shape. The continuous hood from the double wind shield placket is Mackage’s signature detail. I bought a size medium and was able to fit a medium weight sweater without suffocating myself. I’ve never been so happy with a coat.
