With 80-degree weather still sticking around in many parts of the country, it can be hard to even think about putting on a coat. But between back-to-school posts and Halloween prep, and the weather changes, temperatures can turn frosty practically overnight (as anyone who lives in the North East probably knows). 

Now is the time to stock up on your jackets and autumn outfit ideas, this way you won’t be shivering every time you step outside.

One classic jacket that is always a great investment, never goes out of style, and is guaranteed to keep you warm? The puffer. Puffer jackets simultaneously make a statement while guarding you against that biting chill in the air, and right now, there are plenty on the market to choose from, meaning all the more options for crafting the perfect puffer jacket outfit. After all, adding a statement piece like a puffer can take a mundane outfit and turn it into a bold, trendy ensemble for chilly fall and winter days.

Here are some ways to rock your puffer jackets:




You can’t go wrong when pairing a puffer jacket with another one of the season’s biggest trends: trousers. Polish off the look with a pair of casual sneakers and a flattering sweater for an outfit that’s comfortable and chic.

Chunky Footwear


Chunky Footwear:

Donning chunky boots or sneakers only adds to the drama of an oversize puffer jacket (in a good way). Nail the look with a pair of lug sole boots, dad sneakers, or classic Dr. Martens, and tie it all together with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans.

Sleeky basics


Sleek Basics:

A sleek long-sleeved t-shirt or turtleneck is a puffer jacket’s best friend. These basics truly allow the oversize silhouette to shine and provide a blank canvas for other eye-catching essentials like sunglasses, jewelry, and handbags.

High Waist Jeans


High Waist Jeans:

High-waisted jeans are a wardrobe essential no matter what the outfit, but they pair particularly well with puffer jackets. From kick-flare to skinny to boyfriend, simple high-waisted jeans are the perfect complement to oversize, chunky puffers. 


Puffers are basically athleisure at heart, so of course, they work well with their loungewear counterparts: leggings, joggers, and sweatshirts. Paired with a beanie and sneakers, you have the perfect laid-back winter look.
