Celebrities are not impervious to the cold, even if they manage to somehow look more glamorous dressing for it than we mere mortals. Where some similarities do lie, however, is in their sensible choice of outerwear. Whether you're having a wild time at your favourite Sainsbury's Local or going on a walk around the country manor grounds with David Beckham (you too? Weird!), what brings A-listers and our wardrobes together is a shared love for puffer coats and jackets.
Only today were we reminded of the fact when 2020's official "queen of casual" Katie Holmes, stepped out onto the chilly sidewalks of NYC wearing a snuggly, puffy black cropped jacket. It's a style of basic padded outerwear that I've seen all over the streets of east London too—plain enough that you could snap one up from & Other Stories or Arket and it would equally expensive as an ultra-version from a designer brand.
Joining her in recent days comes a roll-call of equally influential names in every kind of puffer coat style possible: Emily Ratajkowski opted for something more statement-making, Rosie HW went some the ultra-ultra high-fashion option (what else?) and even Victoria Beckham, who is usually to be seen in very smart, fitted, classic attire, has given into the comfort of a little black puffer. Keep scrolling to see how they've styled their duvet coats, and shop some of the latest styles we've seen online.
Style Notes: Styling as many celebs before her, Katie Holmes's cropped puffer actually looks coolest with baggy jeans. It may be time to crack out the thermals for underneath…
Style Notes: Keeping warm in style, VB has a classic puffer jacket style and an equally traditional glass of mulled wine.
Style Notes: Maya Jama's black puffer and gold hoops combination feels oh-so-London.
Style Notes: Another mega option for this look is Prada's tailored duvet styles. Please note: A Lapland backdrop and newborn baby do not come with every purchase.
Style Notes: The North Face is no longer just the go-to brand for hiking fanatics—it's had a fashion makeover, and Emily Ratajkowki is buying into the idea.
Style Notes: Bella Hadid continues the trend for mask + puffer + baggy jeans here in NYC.
Style Notes: Wearing the quilted coat of everyone's dreams from Toteme, Rosie HW has of course provided the blueprint for a sophisticated take on this cosy trend.
Style Notes: Kendall has also reinterpreted North Face for a high-fashion ice-skating moment.
