Chic Up your puffer with these styling tips
Slim down the rest of your outfit
Because the puffer coat is so bulky you want to keep the rest of your outfit’s silhouette slim. So do not wear anything heavy or chunky with it.
Emphasise your waist
The puffer coat is a very bulky and shapeless item, and will add inches around your waist. The key to making it look more flattering on your body is to create a nice silhouette by cinching with a belt and to accentuate your waist. If your coat does not come with a belt, just use any belt that will match your coat to tie around your waist.
Go for colour, print or pattern
Invest in a coat that come in a nice bright colour or one with a nice print or pattern. This way you can turn it into your winter statement piece. If you are more comfortable with a black or nude coloured coat then just layer it with other pieces to add lots of contrast.
