The Puffer Jacket Fall 2017
The puffer jacket is one those clothing pieces that are always showing up each season, but is a bit extra trendy this time around. The puffer jacket fall 2017 has been all about the oversized style and also the colorful statement. Red, pink, orange, blue, green – all colors imaginable. As you know, red is one of the most popular shades of the season which makes a red puffer jacket kind of ultimate! The oversized style follows the tune of the 1980s vibe which is another trendy factor to check off! Some of the designers that worked the puffer jacket style are: Balenciaga, Sacai, Kenzo, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Tory Burch!
How To Style The Jacket
So the puffer jacket fall 2017 is about the voluminous, oversized, style. To balance this, the bottom part of your outfit can favorably be defined. A pair of skinny jeans, leggings or a skirt are all great examples. Adding the OTK boots is a terrific way of adding a trendy and comfortable touch!
As the jacket is quite the statement itself, I’d avoid adding excessive accessories. That means a hat or a beanie, oversized scarf or jewelleries, as in a necklace, might be a good idea to skip! I’d also think about what color the jacket is and making it pop by matching accordingly. A red jacket is fun to go monochromatic with or contrast with some crispy white! A black jacket is chic to pair with grey pants or a classic pair of blue denim. If you want to play with the silhouette go for the 70s style. Add a pair of heels for the balance!
A Chic Outfit
One thing about the puffer jacket is that it has a subtle 90s street style vibe to it which gives it a casual vibe. This makes the jacket perfect to contrast with more fancier pieces. An outfit that embodies this perfectly is the one below. The overall in combination with the white sweater has a rather elegant touch to it with the clean lines and classic color combo. The classic bag and the sunnies adds to this feeling. That’s where the puffer jacket makes up for a perfect balance as it adds a street style vibe. Pairing the street feeling with the sneakers is a great way of creating coherency. I think this outfit is a great one if you need an example of how the puffer jacket fall 2017 can be worn in a more subtle way, yet working in a more proper context.
