How do you feel about practical, insulated outerwear? In the past I never would have considered purchasing a puffer jacket, despite the fact they’re essentially wearable duvets. My mindset went something like this… I’m a city girl. I work in fashion. I do not climb mountains, adventure in the wilderness or present Countryfile. Therefore I have no need for a durable coat from The North Face.

But lately I’ve been seeing loads of cool girls around London wearing The North Face puffer jackets. They’re generally paired with vintage jeans, classic sneakers, beanie hats and oversized sunglasses, and I’m such a fan of the look.

Maybe this is a sure sign that I’m creeping closer to my thirties. Or perhaps my sudden affection for durable jackets stems from AW16’s infatuation with puffer coats. But whatever the reason, I’m sure to be well prepared for the impending winter chill…
