I am so excited about the return of the Puffa Jacket! I have a whole new video dedicated to my top coat picks this season and of course the Puffa is included, take a look here. So many designers embraced the padded coat for AW16 and made wrapping up warm look so cool. One of my favourite designer versions of the padded coat trend has to be the sold out, pink Marques Almeida coat of dreams.
When I was about 13-14 years old I remember my mom buying me a super long padded coat with a faux fur trim, it was amazing! It was my school coat that could have doubled up as a sleeping bag, in fact I called it the sleeping bag. When this coat was over (got too small) I was so sad because I never found anything as amazing, until now.
You all know I love bomber jackets but the Puffa is a classic and will always have a place in my heart. This particular Puffa coat has short sleeves, a hood and it’s blue because I just love colour. Now that it’s super cold in England I can wear my leather jacket underneath or a really thick knit.
I am also in love with my Afroji trainer accessories from AFROFLY/9. If you follow me on Instagram you should know all about Afrofly/9. Afrofly/9 is one of my favourite brands because its born and bred in London, it’s different, it’s so me and my super talented friend Leslyn Fraser is the creative genius behind the brand. Obviously the gold bamboo Afrojis are EVERYTHING and I can’t stop looking at my kicks when I wear them. Be sure to check them out here.
This is one of my favourite outfits because tracksuits are so comfy, trainers make me happy and the Puffa just completes the look.
Let me know what you think,
