The puffer coat is to winter what a sundress is to summer: it’s that one reliable piece that you can wear over and over again without virtually any thought. And while the Fall 2018 runways certainly had luxury puffers in spades—at Chanel, they were even trimmed with tweed—there are a number of affordable coats to shop on the market, too. Naturally, leave it to an It girl such as Bella Hadid to find a perfect puffer style that strikes the right balance of classic and trendy while being actually, well, warm. (A crucial detail.)
Stepping out in New York City the day after a heavy snowfall, Hadid embraced cold weather dressing by wearing a white puffer coat by Aritzia. The Super Puff style retails for $228 and comes in a wide variety of different colorways. For more of a streetwear-inspired finish, she then paired it with a graphic “J’adore Dior” T-shirt, blue wide-legged trousers, and chunky white sneakers. And it wouldn’t be a complete look with her signature supermodel flair, which she embraced with tiny, of-the-moment accessories, such as a pink Prada shoulder bag and rectangular sunglasses.
