It’s still puffer jacket season, and the down-filled wearable quilt has proven to be the go-to choice for the style conscious this winter — with none other than Kanye West rocking a North Face Nuptse jacket earlier this year.
The puffer vest, which is simply a sleeveless version of the jacket, offers the same cozy warmth while also being the perfect winter layering piece that can be worn over a sweater or under a jacket. Once the spring finally arrives and the temperature heats up, the jacket acts as an ideal outer layer, as demonstrated by Tyler the Creator and Drake in the Instagram embeds below.
We’ve rounded up the best puffer vests on the market right now, including the sleeveless Nuptse jacket from the North Face, a matte orange offering from MKI, a patchwork jacket from Soulive and a logo vest from Balenciaga. Browse the selection below.
