Yes, they are warm, and light, and all that, and they repel rain and snow—but they also repel admiring glances! For those of us who have always been defeated by the down jacket, for women who prefer tutus to jeans (ok, me) or favor a fifties frock, a scruffy fur jacket, and Chelsea boots (ersatz Saint Laurent on the L train!) comes a possible solution: Wandering blank-eyed around Uniqlo last weekend (who says I’m bored?), I came upon a puffer that undermines the assumptions that have always sunk this item: It’s genuinely pretty! It’s printed with tiny pink Victorian flower buds, as if Marie Antoinette, traipsing around her Petit Hameau with her head still attached, was chilly! It’s so thin and light that it can be stuffed into its own matching drawstring pouch. And if you are still reluctant, you can break it in slowly, maybe hiding it under a vast vintage coat, to provide an extra layer of puffer protection for the stormy season ahead.
Here, a roundup of the prettiest puffers to try now.
