Hi everyone!! I hope you are all keeping cosy and warm-funnily enough, the weather here at the moment has been quite mild and sunny for December, so extra thick layering is not quite on the agenda just for the moment!
One trend that has been in fashion for a couple of decades now has been the 'puffa jacket'-it is definitely one of those 'marmite' trends in that you love or hate them. I fall in to the 'love' category- I remember having a bright orange Miss Selfridge one back in the 90s and although I still love the style I would only ever wear neutral dark colours now!
The celebrities certainly know that not only can they be stylish, but they are just so warm and snug and in the Daily Mail last week it looks like this is a trend that will be around for quite a while to come, especially for those in colder climes:

Over at Net-A-Porter they have some really fabulous picks and if money were no object I would certainly be picking one of these snuggly options:
I picked up this Armani black puffa jacket last winter and its very 90s inspired in the crop style:
I love the little Armani details on the zipper and pockets and being down filled, it really is a cosy option for the winter. I found it for less than £10 in the Sense charity shop and I must have had good jacket thrift luck that day as I also found a H&M khaki and fur lined parka jacket that is still going strong for me again this winter.
I cannot resist a jacket and any style seems to be on my radar for this season-wool, puffa, faux fur- in fact my wardrobe is bulging purely in winter wear!
What style of winter coat or jacket is on your style list this winter-do you love or hate the humble yet cosy puffa?
