Written By: Danielle Caswell

This coming fall/winter will be filled with all kinds of puffer jackets in various silhouettes and colours! It has been apparent that the puffer jacket has taken the runway by storm, which is perfect for these cold Canadian days coming our way. With the top designers taking their spin on the jacket, we will be seeing a lot of top fast fashion companies and local boutiques following. 

From long quilted jackets, to short jackets with new colors, prints and interesting materials used for fun textures.  We will be seeing the fall/winter garment options cater to the latest color trends making the perfect outfit. 

Not only has the runway seen all the newest versions of the jacket but the perfect send off to this season was at the MET gala seeing Rihanna wearing Balenciaga in a head to toe all-black puffer jacket /dress that definitely gave us serious fall vibes. The puffer jacket was once popular for the sporty individual hitting the slopes but now is becoming a favorite for all.  We are going to show you the top trends for this season’s jackets and some tricks on the best ways to style it. 

The quilted puffer jacket

Not only needed for the harsh fall/winters of Canada to keep you nice and cozy but also add that touch of style. This season don’t go for just your average long coat. Keep an eye out for those long Puffer jackets with a touch of pattern sewn in “The quilted look”. This will emphasize any outdoor look with the added texture or style it with a belt to give you some curve. 

The colorful and printed puff

Last fall/winter we saw more short colored puffer jackets thanks to the collaboration with Gucci x The North Face. Since then, the trend has taken off! This coming season we will be seeing more of the jacket in different colors like purples, pinks, reds and oranges. The fun doesn’t stop there, if you love a print the popular jacket will be seen in florals, paisleys and animal prints.

New textured puff

Corduroy, vinyl and leather:  Neutral lovers, we always keep you in mind! Keeping things clean, cut and neutral with the puffer jacket is easy – just add some texture to get the perfect look. This season we will be seeing a lot of corduroys, vinyl and leathers to our outdoor apparel.  Going for the monochromatic look, this is the jacket for you with its luxurious textures.

Keeping things stylish sometimes gets lost in our outer wear during the harsh cold days but these options of the trending Puff jacket will help you keep up that personal style all while staying warm.
