In recent times, quilted jackets have come back into fashion. For good reason, they keep you warm during the long winter days and adapt perfectly to all outfits. They invaded the catwalks of fashion shows and landed in many brands. With their cousins the parkas, these pieces of the wardrobe are a real weapon against the cold of the season. They are available in multiple versions to satisfy all styles and silhouettes. All our advice for choosing the right padded jacket.
A harmonious cut to stand out proudly
Once synonymous with over-inflation, the quilted jacket now comes in light and ultra-thin models, very light and which can even be slipped under a coat. In various colors to match many outfits, we like to wear it proudly. Oversized pieces do not leave room for the cold and give a bohemian look. For women who have a marked waist, a belt will bring an additional touch of femininity.
To choose this type of jacket, it is important to follow some recommendations. Take care to choose a harmonious cut according to your silhouette. Tall, slender women can afford any length. Women with more voluptuous curves will opt for a mid-length model to camouflage their hips or an “trapeze” cut with clean lines for more modernity and style. Avoid models that are too tight, otherwise you will feel stubby.
Tips for wearing your jacket well
How to properly wear your down jacket? If you choose it in a sporty version, choose fitted jeans and a pair of trainers to keep the proportions nice. For your daily life, a more urban model will do, accompanied by a pair of low boots or ankle boots.
With a dress, you can perfectly wear this type of jacket, provided you mix it with flat shoes that do not go up too high. Indeed, it could cut your figure otherwise. Avoid waders, stilettos and overly elaborate shoes, you would lose modernity.
Similarly, avoid the black puffer jacket if your outfit is also dark. Choose a beautiful color such as navy blue, camel, burgundy, gray or even khaki. Also avoid down jackets that are too tight or too small. Choose it in your size. Same for the type of model: the matte version will bring a chic side to the whole. The pretty details and finishes, such as beautiful press studs or a faux fur hood will also add something extra, with a nice contrasting lining. Finally, regarding the cut, know that the length should not be too short or too long. For the shortest, it must arrive below the hip bone. For the longest, it should reach mid-thigh.
