29 Impressive High-Street Puffer Coats That Are Perfect for Spring

Puffer coats have long been considered practical. But stylish? Thanks to a host of designer interpretations of the cosy, borderline-ugly outerwear, they've become something of a fashion-insider must-have. Arguably, it was 2020 when the puffer coat's sartorial status really reached its peak. Socialising outdoors was considered the norm, and the likes of Bottega Veneta and Totême created very special puffer coats, the majority of which swiftly made their way to the top of many an editor's and influencer's wish list. 

But then, we started last year spending a lot more time outside, and the duvet coat became essential for many of us—and not just those with budgets for the designer versions. In February, according to global fashion search platform Lyst, searches for "duvet coat" rose quickly and were up 34% in the space of a month. People were also searching for "maxi down coat," "duvet jacket" and "quilted duvet coat," and it looks from the new-in offering at so many stores right now we're about to hit a similar peak as we continue into spring—it might be bright out, but there’s still some chilly days ahead. 

If you're hunting down a puffer coat right now, then we've got good news. We've spent all week finding the best and most affordable versions on the high street, just for you.

The shops (both digital and real-life) are practically bursting with puffer coats, from classic black to bolder hues, with the most frugal coming in at £54. That's not to say they don't look premium. Design details such as statement labels and built-in belts as well as interesting silhouettes come together to create an expensive-looking edit. But don't take our word for it. Keep scrolling to see them. They’re so good every bone in your body will tell you they’re designer. Spoiler: They’re not.
