The return of the Puffer Jacket

2016 is fast becoming the year that fashion got practical.

What with trainers overtaking heels, oversized knits replacing restricted tops and now, the portable duvet that is the puffer jacket is topping our shopping lists. Puffer jackets (or puffa as I like to call them) are certainly having their fashion moment. What was once reserved for the ski slopes and country casuals has had a wearable wardrobe update for A/W16, thanks to Balenciaga - and Rhianna, obvs! Worn draped off the shoulders over a slinky slip or topping off a tailored trouser, the puffa is becoming (dare I say it?) a chic way to update your winter wardrobe. Basically, channeling your inner toasted marshmallow never looked so good!

Here's some of my firm faves from budget to broke.
