Happy New Year loves! We made it to 2020! I am so excited about the fashion this year, hence the first post of the year dives right into a major fashion trend, the puffer coat. I know you’re thinking why this coat? Are they warm, why are they in style, are they waterproof, and why are they popular? Let me go ahead and answer all these questions and then I’ll show you how to style and elevate your puffer coat.
Puffer coats are in style simply because they are warm and for the most part waterproof. They are an ideal coat for cold weather. It is important to note that over the years fashion has moved into a comfort and style direction. Marrying comfort and style has been a winning recipe for so many brands, hence why we see items like puffer coats gain notoriety amongst fashion girls all over the world.
Elevating your puffer coat is easier than you thinkTo achieve this, simply wear your coat the same way you would wear a tailored, or dressy coat. Most people view these coats as casual or playful. You have to change your mindset to fully embrace this trend. Viewing the coat as one that is chic and elegant will make styling the coat easier. The silhouette of the coat is also very important, try and pick a silhouette that is clean, classic, not too busy and will always complement the outfit it is worn with.

What to wear with itI picked a white puffer coat because winter white is inherently chic. Pairing the coat with a similar color always elevates the look. A classic pair of knee-high boots, chic sunglasses, and an on trend clutch all complete the look, hence creating the ultimate city girl outfit of the day.
