How to: rock a gold puffer

Who doesn’t love a bright & fun metallic puffer on cold & gloomy days? The ultimate statement piece - comfy, weather appropriate, & cute. How do you rock it without looking like a baked potato?? See below:

1. Choose a puffer with a good finish - I tried to avoid high shine metallic finishes in cheaper materials. As jackets wrinkle - I wanted a fabric that would hold with wear to avoid that “tin foil” look. This particular rose gold puffer from Gap had a softer satin-like finish that did not crinkle. 


2. Keep a simple color palette  - whether you want a high contrast look pairing the puffer with black, or a cleaner monochrome vibe with neutrals and white, keep it simple and let the gold be a statement and shine on its own. 


3.  Pair with clean & classic pieces - a big voluminous puffy jacket can get overwhelming. Whether you pair with joggers, skinnies, canvas sneakers, or running shoes - keep the rest of your look classic & simple with clean lines/silhouettes.
