Sandro Makes A Case For The Puffer Jacket — & We're SO Into It

    Every fall, we start scoping out our next most important seasonal buy: an amazing coat that we'll practically live in. But, this year's search is over before it's even begun. Blame it on Sandro.

    The French label is pretty spot on when it comes to predicting not only the styles we know we love, but the fun new shapes we're willing to give a whirl. And, in this case, we're talking puffer coats.

    Nestled in a collection of chic, sophisticated peacoats and perfectly distressed, leather bombers, Sandro helps us welcome back a fluffier outwear shape that — no — doesn't remind us of our down comforter. It's all the cool of the early-2000 puffer — without any of the doofy. And, because we need something to wear beneath our jackets, Sandro's fall line also comes packed with sexy-smart minidresses, cropped wide-fit pants, and winter-ready Bermuda shorts (if there ever were such a thing). Paired with the label's two-tone creepers and borrowed-from-the-boys striped button-downs, consider us fall-ready...and it's only just July.
