Stylish Ways to Wear a Puffer Jacket

The winter months are coming up fast! And with that, we start to pull out our winter wardrobes. But if you’re starting to get a little tired of that coat you’ve had for years, maybe it’s time to upgrade with new prints and colors! Lightweight and toasty warm, puffers are a crazy cute and versatile fashion staple for when our thermometers start to drop!

Work It

Wear it to work. Does the cold-commute-air keep making you question your outfit? Layer up with a printed puffer. Adding a colored print is an easy way to brighten up any workwear outfit, and it’s even better when it actually keep you warm. Go ahead and keep that office thermostat low–your adorable jacket is keeping you cozy.

Laid Back

Keep things casual. Grab the packable puffer when the usual sweater layering just isn’t going to cut it. We know you still want to look cute, even when there’s no real reason for it. If you live in a place where the temperature fluctuates a ton throughout the day (freezing morning, warmer afternoons) you can always tie your puffer around your waist.

Layer up

…And under. Packable puffers don’t have to be jackets—we have vests, too! Try layering a bright & cheerfully colored vest under an outfit with a mostly neutral palette.

Stylist Tip: Vests keep your core warm. If you find yourself doing quite a lot of brisk walking (we sure do when it’s cold!) a vest is a great way to ensure you don’t freeze, but do get some ventilation for when you arrive at your destination.

Sometimes, you don’t need a reason to wear a puffer—they’re just cute! Style an outfit around a fresh hued puffer for a fun athleisure look. Love this look? Try matching your vest with details in your outfit (we picked the sweater.)

If all this styling inspiration has you ready for a puffer upgrade, take your style quiz and order a Fix. Ask your stylist for a versatile neutral or be bold and request a printed or bright-colored layer. Relax as you wait for your five items to arrive. Try on everything at home, keep what you like and send back the rest. It’s just that simple.
