After parading down numerous A/W 2016 catwalks, including Stella McCartney and Balenciaga, it’s clear the puffer coat trend is still going strong in 2017 thanks to standout pieces by Calvin Klein, Greg Lauren X Moncler and even Fenty Puma by Rihanna.
The spin this season is larger and longer quilts, but the classic shorter style is still very much present on the high street too. This re-vamped, elongated coat streamlines your shape, making you look slimmer and taller. Plus it’s great for flattering problem areas like your tummy, bum and thighs.
The puffer coat trend seems to be embracing new fabrics and more daring colours too! Which is perfect if you like to have a statement coat for winter.
