The Closet Staple You Need Now

Bernardo quilted puffer coat


After years of being the disgrace of winter outerwear, puffer jackets are celebrity style staple. Since stars are usually the first to jump on a trend, if not the very reason the trend exists in the first place- I’ve spotted them bundled up in their wonderfully insulated coats. There’s Gigi Hadid in her gorgeous red puffer coat, and then we have Blake Lively in her luxe navy long version. Model Romee Strijd rocked this retro puffer coat perfectly!

I want to share one of my favorite recent fashion finds and new closet staple. I just got this Bernardo quilted puffer coat and love the red color. it’s the perfect pop of color with the rest of the fall neutrals that are slowly taking over my closet.

This jacket is perfect if you’re a person like me who loves to be warm, but not overly bundle up to the point where you can’t move! With its Primaloft ThermoPlume fill, this jacket is super warm and lightweight, allowing for a slim fit without the bulk of many other down jackets. (Check out my tips on how to dress warmer, not wider HERE) It great for Fall weather, before the harsh winter cold starts, and a great addition to wear inside if it’s cold and then layer if needed. It’s amazingly thin, yet warm!! Its super lightweight jacket and feels like a feather when you’re holding it. I am 5 feet 5-inch-tall, and a size small, and the small size fits perfect for me and looks great.

This style features a stowaway hood in the standing collar, gunmetal hardware, and its unique quilting pattern creates a streamlined, feminine silhouette. With its water-resistant fabric and packable feature, I love the way it stuffs into a small pouch. It’s a must-have for the on-the-go lifestyle!! Perfect for tossing into a tote and ideal for travel. It can do double-duty as a pillow during long trips.
