Thanks to our ongoing nostalgia for the '90s, the puffer jacket has become the autumn coat of choice over the past few years, shaking off its ski chalet and Alan Partridge associations to be embraced by everyone from your boss to your little sister. With luxury houses and the high street offering their own versions (although tech-first brands like The North Face and Uniqlo are still wintry weather champions), it was only a matter of time before the ubiquitous style evolved into something new. Enter: the quilted jacket.
Thinner and more streamlined than its retro cousin, the quilted jacket is this season's preferred outerwear. The beauty of the quilted jacket? Much like the puffer, it feels like you're wearing your duvet, so there's no need to sacrifice comfort upon leaving the warmth of your flat. Layer up or down depending on Britain's changeable autumn weather, and don with anything from comfy jeans and patterned jumpers to our beloved dresses and boots combo. A sure winner to keep the autumn blues at bay.
