Although they might be chunky, puffer jackets are too deliciously warm for us not to wear during the winter months, so it’s worth your while to make them fashionable. And it’s all about the styling.

Whether your puffer is long, short, in a cute colour or just plain black, trust us when we say that there is a way to style it cuter than you could ever imagine.

We’re so sure that we’re going to prove it to you. Here are five ways to style your puffer so fashionably, that you’ll forget that you ever saw it as a necessity rather than a fashion statement.

Wear It Oversized

An oversized coat is super in right now, so why not an oversized blazer?
