Puffer jackets, also called quilted jackets, have a signature quilted design with sections that are “puffy” between the stitching. They are filled with down insulation or synthetic fibres, both of which can provide a high level of warmth depending on how well they are made and the quality of the synthetic fibres. Another attribute is that they are often very lightweight despite being very warm (with the down-filled jackets weighing a little more, so keep that in mind). Compared to wool or leather, puffer jackets provide a unique combination of both warmth and lightness. For example, our Cooler Wear Vest keeps your core warm in well-below freezing temps while keeping bulk and weight (and cost) to a minimum.
The rise in the puffer jacket’s popularity since 2014 has been absolutely amazing. It was all about the pea coats, parkas, and bombers in the past, but now, insulated down coats are now the rave of the moment under the winter coats category’s and it might remain that way for a long time.
Maybe the rise is due to the acceptance of hip-hop or the growth of high-tech fabrics, whatever the reason is, it has really taken over. However, with several styles to select from, it can be difficult to decide on your choice at an affordable price that will appeal to you.
To simplify the process, this tutorial will help with different options you can go for. Check them out in our list of five puffer jackets that are about to storm the fashion world:
1. Nanushka Lenox Vegan Leather Puffer Coat
This vegan leather puffer that the ladies could not do without in 2018 is currently anticipating its release from their closets. Nanushka, the fashion house behind the it-girl coat, has delivered new takes on its now-classic. We have been blessed with this belted, hooded edition that might even be preferred to the OG.
2. MOTHER The Two-Faced Puffer
This option already has a cult celebrity following because of its jeans. Meghan Markle and Jennifer Garner regularly flaunt the Looker style. However, this season’s outerwear assortment will definitely step things up. This reversible down jacket is very light, so your comfort is guaranteed.
3. DKNY Logo-Print Puffer Jacket
It is clear now that logo print is going nowhere this season. Summer’s monogrammed bikini phenomenon is slowly transmuting into fall and winter’s all-over logo print trend. If you do not have the money for a Gucci version, DKNY should be your next choice. The American house will be 30 in 2019 so marking it with a stylish and affordable staple is only right.
4. Orolay Women’s Thickened Down Jacket
This is also known as “The Amazon Coat.” It has really gone viral and it has more than 7,000 customer reviews right about now. It is actually a best-seller in its category. If you head to Amazon and search for “down coat,” this is the top choice. This coat extends to the hip and has a little step-hem that gives a contemporary feel. This coat is so famous, it has its personal Instagram account.
5. Free People Dolman Quilted Knit Jacket
This schlubby, knit coat could pass as a sweater and a puffer jacket. This makes it usable for transitional seasons. One of Free People’s best-selling styles, the jacket attracted close to perfect 4.8-star rating from more than 75 reviewers, and it is buyable in 8 artfully washed-out tones. It should be your go-to option for chilling on the couch. You can use it as your workout gear or rock it with jeans and ankle boots as well.
