The refresh of the puffer, the best of 2017

We all know it's coming, but we can't help but be shocked when it arrives. Yes, I'm talking winter. The bitter chill in the air means it’s time to get as cosy as possible when venturing into the outdoors, but luckily for us the fashion gods have provided us with something warm, comfortable and dammit, functional. What better option is there than the puffer coat?

Popular back in the '80s and '90s before becoming synonymous with ski dads and tourists, the puffer was revived last year on the catwalks of Balenciaga to Stella McCartney before hitting up #streetstyle. Fast-forward to this season and what's changed? The puffer has even more to offer, with off-kilter shapes, vibrant prints and tactile fabrics giving us all a refresh for winter 2017.

If you associate the jacket with athleisure or streetwear, think again. This season's puffers look as brilliant over Ganni's floral midi dresses as they do with kick flare denim and a trusty knit. And did we mention you won't find a cosier coat? And don't worry about resembling a marshmallow, then we’ve compiled an edit that might just win you over.
