Before we say that puffer vests are back in style maybe we should ask the golden question: Did they ever go out of style? No matter what, every cold season like clockwork, you’ll see puffer vests lined up on racks in store. Hell, there’s probably one already hanging up in your closet right now. Lucky for you, we know just the way to style them this winter if you don’t know where to start.

A puffer vest doesn’t have to be solely for outdoor winter activity—though they perform pretty well while doing so—but can be for truly any winter event. Running errands, going out for the day, vacation, shopping—the list goes on and on.

If the way of wearing a puffer vest seems a little daunting, that’s where we come in. We’ve gathered all the styling inspo you could ever dream of to rock yours endlessly this season. 

 

With a sweater and wide-leg pants

This outfit combo is guaranteed to make any puffer vest look its absolute best. Opt for a more oversized sweater to compliment the wide-legged pant, which pair perfectly together with a vest on top.

Monochrome is never a bad idea, and that includes a puffer vest. Match your base layer with your vest for an off-duty look that exudes athleisure chicness.

With loungewear

Careful, once you pair a loungewear set with a vest there’s nothing you’ll ever want to wear again. The definition of cozy and cool, it’s an opportunity to make a matching set look even cooler.

With an oversized sweatshirt

If you have a long puffer vest you’re trying to style, try it out for size with an oversized sweatshirt underneath. The larger sleeves will make for double the drama, and the effect will be similar to a parka, but sleeveless.

If you’re stumped on how to style your cropped vest, this formula should be your go-to. Opt for a cropped top to emphasize the length of the vest, and balance it out with a wide-legged, high-waisted pair of pants.
