For a bitterly cold winter, nothing does the trick like a puffer jacket. And while you probably got sick of the sight of yours after all those park walks during the height of the pandemic, the humble puffer jacket deserves another winter as your old reliable in the coat department.

Sienna Miller swears by them for winters in New York. So do Katie Holmes, Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid. Hailey Bieber even wears them in LA, having just been spotted in a grey Prada puffer. They’re the clothing equivalent of a duvet day – and we’re betting one out of every four people you pass on the street today will be wearing one. This season's might have functionality at its core, but it also comes with edge.

They're XXL in size, 100% snug and totally unafraid of taking up space. Just look at the examples on the autumn catwalks if you need a quick visual: Balenciaga's was styled with turtlenecks and baggy jeans; Celine's with tank tops and leather trousers. At the extra end of the spectrum was Jacquemus, who sent waist-cropped versions down the runway, and Khaite, whose inflatable coats reached well below the knees. But Marc Jacobs' - gorgeously jewel-toned and floor-skimmingly oversized - and has got to be the ultimate acquisition this winter.

They might be considered high-fashion now, but many editors are long-time fans. ‘I’ve lived in these coats ever since I grew up in cold Montreal winters,’ says Tank’s fashion director Caroline Issa. ‘What I love is how stylish they’ve become.’

From longer-line styles to short, cropped versions, the puffer is clearly the coat of choice for the fashion set. And not just because it's so warm (and the pockets are deep enough for all manner of snacks). All hail the power puffer.
