The Fall 2020 season of New York Fashion Week was a cold one. While the temperatures didn't reach arctic proportions, the wind chill certainly called for layers — and lots of them. Fashion goers bundled up by way of a popular coat that's probably a mainstay in your wardrobe: the puffer jacket. As NYFW street style skews more casual from season to season, puffer coats are on the rise and it couldn’t be a better time to bust yours out of the closet (or snag one for $25 at ASOS).
Whether styled with maxi dresses, high-waisted jeans, or something in between, runway show-goers chose nearly every style of puffer coat and jacket for the occasion. There were cropped silhouettes and floor-grazing dusters, bright colors and classic neutrals, and even some floral-printed styles. One chic fashion-lover even busted out a denim puffer because you can never get enough of that heavyweight cotton weave.
Gone are the days when puffers jackets were mostly paired with knits, denim, or sweats. Almost all the puffers worn by street style stars were teamed with heels. One show goer even layered her puffer over a floor-length gown, juxtaposing the sporty coat with a formal under layer.
