Do I Really Need Another Puffer Jacket? Probably Not, But Here Are the Ones I’ll Be Browsing This Week

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, puffer jackets, or “bubble coats” as some would like to call them, have really been bursting through the winter style scene recently (both figuratively and literally). There’s something so magical about a big, puffy jacket with a unique texture during the winter months — it’s super chic, but still has a sense of ~casual coziness~. Still, their massive volume makes them a little tougher to cohort into a big bubble coat collection you may be dreaming of.

I may or may not own too many puffer jackets to begin with, but TBH, I just can’t stop buying them. I’m not even sorry about it. This trend is so warm and cozy — who can resist? Here are the jackets I’ve had my eyes on lately for you to also consider adding to your collection. 

1. The classic red 

Red bubble coats have a street-style flare all of their own, and they’ve become a cult favorite in the street fashion scene. The bold red color, shiny finish and puffy, eye-catching material makes red bubble coats like these true statement pieces that can level up a simple sweatpants and t-shirt combo in no time. 

2. UO Hadley puffer jacket, Urban Outfitters, $89

There’s something precious and dreamy about a pastel puffer jacket. If you want a softer look, this pastel puffer jacket can deliver that easily with its super long puffy sleeves, baby blue color and cropped length. Throw this jacket on a more muted pattern to make a delicate yet chic look. 

3. A violet number

One wildcard color in every section of your clothing is a must, and a fun, violet bubble coat may just be what you need. Wearing a show-stopping purple jacket encourages you to match with more vibrant colors as well. If it’s a warmer day, pair this jacket with a neon mini skirt or a pair of neutral flared sweatpants to make a bold statement.

4. Quilted vest with hood, Zara, $69.90

This sleek puffer jacket vest takes on a completely different vibe than your typical puffer coat. The black color slims the puffy look of the jacket, making it look much more sophisticated and high fashion. If it’s really cold out, put on a neutral gray turtleneck and the vest on top for a look that could walk the runway. 

5. Sophisticated beige bubble 

Another chic option, this beige bubble coat does wonders for any warm outfit. Pair beige bubble coats with any neutral beige, golds and warm tones for a cohesive, monochrome outfit that you’ll feel warm and wonderful in. Finish the look off with a matching bucket hat and a chunky sneaker to take it over the top. 

Bubble coats are an awesome addition to an outfit when you find just the kind you think fits your style vibe. There’s a lot more variation than you’d think, so don’t be afraid to browse around and think outside the box when it comes to your next winter fit.
