New York Fashion Week is right around the corner and I am always thrilled to go back to New York City again. Although fashion week is all about experimenting with new trends and looking chic, staying comfy and warm is my top priority. As an L.A. girl, I’m definitely not ready for the cold temperature in New York (I mean… I wore my puffer jacket even in the 60 degrees weather in L.A.). To get my fashion week wardrobe NYC-weather proofed, I picked out a few puffer jackets that can help me stay warm when I go out and about in the cold.
The trick to making puffer jackets chic is to keep it oversized. Instead of the typical slim-fit puffers that are tailored to accentuate your waist, look for ones that are bulky and puffy. Trust me on this. If you want to add some shape to the outfit, wearing a belt over the oversized puffer jacket (or get this Avec Les Filles Wrap Puffer Jacket that comes with a belt!) This Nike Down Jacket is also a good option if you style it over sweaters and a pair of ankle boots.
If you want to brighten up a dull winter wardrobe, try Colorful puffer jackets! For those that are not used to wearing colors and struggle with styling colorful items, my tip to match the rest of your outfit to the jacket and create a monochromatic outfit (like how I styled this grey puffer jacket here). Light-toned puffer jackets are so versatile, you can either go street-style with an oversized hoodie and a pair of knee-high boots, or stay classy and wear a turtlenecks sweater underneath.
