The -ber months are essentially the time when we’re expecting the chilly weather to come so we have an excuse to wear our sweaters and jackets. You know, those pieces that are holed up in your closet since summer. But the past few months have been warmer than usual, which sucks because puffer jackets are in this season.
Puffer jackets and coats were first spotted on the fall 2018 runways of New York Fashion Week. They come in varying colors, sizes, and prints, and they’re sure to keep you toasty in colder climates. Ariana Grande has proven this time and time again wherever she is.
Fashion sisters Laureen Uy and Liz Uy also wore puffers while attending fashion week. While Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle was spotted borrowing Prince Harry’s jacket during their royal tour in New Zealand.
So, aside from luggage, you should consider investing on a puffer jacket of your own. After all, some countries’ temperatures can drop up to 10 degrees Celsius—better safe than sorry. Don’t know where to find one? Check out our list below.
