THE PUFFER COAT IS COOLER THAN EVER

If you have been watching the news or reading any of the latest headlines lately, then it is safe to say you need a break from it all. It has been quite a whirlwind with the ongoing nasty political, pre-election day banter, Hollywood breakups (Adios Brangelina) and the devastating aftermath left behind by last week’s hurricane Matthew. It’s hard not to notice also that temperatures are already starting to take a nose dive as fall has arrived. So before we hit the end of daylight savings time on November 6th, now would be a great time to look for that one coat that will take you through some of the coldest days of winter. What would be the one coat to invest in this coming winter? An oldie but goodie, the puffer coat! Yep – the goose down functional favorite was seen all over the fashion runways courtesy of Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Moschino, Lanvin and many others. The trick is finding one that best suits your style and of course, comfort and warmth is always key. These days there so many options from vests, short jackets or long and colors. If you are feeling daring and tired of the old classic black puffer coat, try a metallic, green, red or even winter white. Here are some cozy options  to consider when shopping for that puffer coat.

NAVY HUES AND PEACOTS TAKE OVER FALL TRENDS

Fall is by far one of the best seasons for fashion. The versatility, the textures, patterns and layers make for a season of cool, fun style. Back in February, we told you that designers had presented a mix of casual and also polished fall looks at NYFW . What we saw repeatedly on the runway were different versions of navy and military inspired jackets and peacoats. Sure navy wool double-breasted coats have been fall classics forever but who doesn’t like the resurgence of something we may already own. In fact, if you already own a peacoat maybe it’s time to update the look entirely and go for a military style cape. Did you see that one coming? The cape has been a favorite for many seasons now and we can bet our fashion dollar it’s going nowhere soon. The color navy was also a popular color on the runways everywhere. Some examples would be Fendi, Miu Miu and Burberry.  It’s a staple and can easily be mixed with olive green, pastel pink, beige or for fun just add a pop of red. This is the time of year when outerwear options begin to peak.
