You might think that the best way to go when it comes to puffer jackets is keeping it cropped, fitted, and body-skimming, especially if looking to flatter your figure and make your outfit as timeless as possible. Maybe those oversized Gucci North Face jackets just aren’t for you, and if you’re planning on going for a puffer, you know you need something classic and fitted. Well, all of your prior bias might be flipped on its head as soon as you get a good glimpse of elongated puffers that hit at the knee or below. Not only are they warm, but long puffer jackets are tremendously chic, taking any look into sophisticated cold weather territory in no time.
As per Glamour, full length puffers that hit you at the knee or below are the epitome of a statement piece, and should be treated as such. The outlet recommends going for a super-femme, leather-like version, especially anything with buttons and a dainty collar. Complete the look with heels, a puffy clutch bag, and simple lines underneath for a look that takes you from early fall to peak winter. L’Officiel recommends balancing your long puffer with minimal volume underneath, suggesting wearing it with streamlined, tight-fitting leggings. Still, as evidenced by countless street style stars, a long puffer also looks great with black flare pants, chunky platforms, shades and a crossbody for on-the-go chic. Similarly, straight-leg jeans, sneakers, and a classic sweater also complement this look perfectly.
