The Length of the Puffer Matters

First, where the puffer hits you on your frame matters. Think of it as the centerpiece of the outfit. You style everything else around it. For example, I like a cropped style so my silhouette does not get lost with the additional volume.

Get a Puffer That Fits

Second, be sure to get a puffer that actually fits you! For instance, don’t get one that is huge and just adds volume to your frame. A trick to figuring that out is to see where it hits you on your shoulders. It shouldn’t jet out too much past your shoulders. Conversely, opt for a puffer vest that allows you to see your shoulders.

The Simpler, the Better

Third, go with a simple style. It is tempting to go with a puffer that has a lot going on. Resist the temptation to do that! The volume of this piece already adds something different to your look. So, just stick to a simple style in a neutral color. This will ensure that you will actually wear it.
