Back in the ’90s, the only people rocking a puffer were George Costanza and the members of NSYNC — and they weren’t exactly fashion idols. But thanks to recent appearances from Meghan Markle, Rihanna and Billie Eilish, puffer jackets are cool again and we want nothing more than to bundle up in one, too. Unlike wool peacoats which can itch like crazy, puffers are notoriously warm and cozy. Wearing one makes you feel like a human burrito, hence the moniker “sleeping bag coat”. Most retailers nowadays carry a variety of different styles, from cropped to oversized, so you’re guaranteed to find something in your favourite colour.
