Love being enveloped by a hug or fluffy blanket even as you leave the source of hug or bed? Puffer jackets to your rescue
I’m certain that besides it being practical for icy cold weather, wearing the puffer jacket is akin to having a permanent hug enveloping you or the clever way of having a built-in bedding so you can plop yourself somewhere and snooze whenever you feel like it. How else would you even reconcile the appeal of the puffer jacket trend?
Puffiness in general when it comes to the beauty and fashion worlds are actively avoided but the hot outerwear trend for the bone-biting weather leans into the volume. Some say that it is a look the skinny pulls off because the extra puff seems like a charming contrast over their frail frames. Perhaps, this is another extension of the lampshade trend.
I personally think that if you’re inclined to appreciate the act of hugging pillows and wrapping yourself in a thick blanket shielding from the chill or the pressing needs of life outside the comfort of your bed, then the puffer jacket is a must-have because you’ll feel like you’re still hugged by your cozy blanket but you’re now able to walk out of the door looking presentable and ready to tackle the day ahead.
I don’t know if I’d ever want to wear a puffer jacket in the future should I find myself in a cold place but the way the fashionistas are wearing theirs ever so effortlessly is certainly making me pause to ponder if I might.
