Wrap up: 10 cosy puffer jackets guaranteed to keep the cold at bay

by Jennifer McShane
24th Nov 2019

These are cosy AND stylish

When the temperature drops, puffer jackets are an appealing choice. Pillowy or padded, there is a load of choice out there for you to choose from and, happily, all puffer jackets will definitely keep you warm and snug in the inevitable winter chill. Fashion Director Marie Kelly prefers to describe them as “wearable duvets,” which is a necessary wardrobe staple for us all during the winter season. You can make a statement with an oversized coat and if you’re worried about getting lost in one, opt for a coat that’s nipped at the waist. Along with a sleeker silhouette, it gives the jacket a more feminine edge.

Scroll on for our ten puffer jacket picks — to suit a variety of different budgets — and be sure to wrap up when you’re out and about.
