First developed for cold climes but finding its feet in the street fashion of the ‘90s, the puffer jacket is now woven so deeply into the fabric of modern-day style that most wardrobes are home to one in some form. Not only does a puffer jacket enhance outfit silhouettes by being unashamedly bold and bulky, but it’s also a practical, lightweight, and warm companion to see you through the winter. It's a prime example of enduring style rooted in function.

While there is light at the end of the wintry tunnel, there’s still a whole lot of chill to come this year. Whether you’re on the search for something fashion-forward from the likes of Cold Laundry or if you’re more taken by a time-tested classic like a North Face puffer jacket, it’s not too late to cop a puffer jacket to see out the rest of the cold.
