Nothing beats back the post-summer malaise of short, chilly days like an oversized, bright puffer. Big, Michelin-man/marshmallow volume, worn unzipped like Bella Hadid, Cara Delavigne or Zhangzou, above. Resist the urge to go with practical colors and silhouettes–like a black, waist-crop version–basically the outerwear equivalent of sweat pants. Go big and go bright!
Ever since Andre Leon Talley put on his iconic, floor-sweeping red coat designed by his pal Norma Kamali, the puffa has been re-engineered as a statement piece, offering architectural structure with all its warm, lightweight practicality intact. This season we found lots of lighter shades of pink, lavender and pale yellow.
