The Winter Uniform Every Cool Girl Will Be Wearing

Written by: Eduarda Loureiro

I’m always up for scouting the next big trend(s) every it-girl will be wearing whether it’s on the streets, off the runway, or even in my Pinterest.

Not all the trends are a go for me though, but I know a winning combo when I see one.

And one thing’s for sure – there’s something about ugly pieces making a comeback.

For instance, the slingback-grandma shoe, the old-age cardi jacket or, in this case, the puffer jacket. Being hugely associated with athleisure, it’s no wonder I’ve seen it wavering across street style photos.

I have to say, it’s one that clicked for me, especially since I moved to New York – the winters here are brutal. I almost feel like you have to come up with fashionable alternatives to survive… The light jacket or no-socks thing does not work. This trend is one I’m looking forward to abusing. It seems comfy, weather-appropriate, practical, and above all, stylish. This winter uniform is simple:

Puffer Coat + Cropped Jeans + Ankle Boots

On another note, Luisa Via Roma is giving us an extra 20% off sale items from the 22nd until the 30th this month. Plus, Shopbop’s Buy More Save More event is also here – shop it now! These guys are helping us prepare for winter while saving some serious dollars!  Here’s how you can rock the puffer trend:

Long Puffer Coat

The long puffer is a must-have. It protects you all around, exposing only a teensy part of your legs. It’s a great option if you live in a city with lots of wind, rain, and cold. Don’t be afraid to go all out in the details. Given that most of your body is going to be covered, take a chance on your shoes and accessories.

Belted Puffer Coat

The belted puffer is a win-win. You can keep everything tight with a simple belt, while elevating your whole look. Again, high-impact accessories are key when you’re wearing an ugly statement piece.

Puffer Jacket

Last but not least, the standard puffer. This one is definitely my favorite because the options are infinite – it’s the most versatile of them all. Don’t forget to add a pair of cropped pants or jeans with some sparkle and shine.
