There is nothing better on a cold, crisp day than to slip on your puffer jacket with fur trim and take a walk outside. But what do you know about that jacket?
The puffer jacket is a sectioned design that is similar to a quilt. The outside of the coat is made up of puffy sections connected by seams. Each puffy section is stuffed with down or other material that adds to the jacket’s warmth. Many people prefer puffer jackets because they are much lighter than heavier jackets, like those made of wool.
In the 1970s, Penny Rogers, a British clothing designer, created what became known as the “Puffa Line” of coats which she created from styles she had seen in Canada and the United States. In fact, the jacket gained notoriety when it was worn by Princess Diana in several photo shoots. Since that time, puffer coats have grown in popularity for both men and women.
Because the jackets are lightweight, they are perfect to wear during cold weather months. They tend to be used as a casual jacket, but occasionally can be dressed up a bit.. They are particularly popular with winter outdoor sporting enthusiasts as their “featherweight” makes them easier to manage on ski slopes or while hiking in cold weather, and the fur trim blocks protects the face from harsh winds, snow, and freezing rain.
