How to Style Puffer Jackets Like Kate Middleton, J.Lo, Ciara, and More

Puffer jackets are certainly not the most exciting winter trend in existence, but that doesn't mean you can't style them in cool and unexpected ways. Need a little bit of inspiration to get started? I've got you covered. I scoured through tons of celebrity photos and settled on my favorite six puffer-jacket outfits from the likes of Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, Irina Shayk, and more.

Hadid, of course, knows exactly how to give the humble puffer jacket a high-fashion upgrade, while Middleton is partial to a more laidback approach involving skinny jeans and lace-up boots. Meanwhile, Ciara has offered up a fantastic outfit idea if you want to dress up your favorite puffer. Scroll down to recreate celebrity puffer jacket outfits.

Leave it to Bella Hadid to make a basic puffer jacket look like a million bucks. I love her monochrome outfit and how she expertly styled white jeans for winter. I found some strikingly similar pieces below to help you re-create her look.

Another excellent monochrome outfit, this time courtesy of Ciara. I would never have thought to coordinate my puffer jacket with a formal outfit (usually, I'd assume I'd take off the jacket upon arrival), but Ciara is really convincing me to give the matchy-matchy look a try.

Everyone is obsessed with how warm The North Face jackets are, but now I'm giving you another reason to try out the brand: it's EmRata-approved. I love how she let her blue jacket take center stage by teaming it with black pieces.

4. Sweatpants + Combat Boots

This one goes out to all the lazy dressers like me: Yes, you can make sweatpants look cool outside the house. Just copy Irina Shayk and wear a sweatsuit with a shiny black puffer and lace-up boots.

5. Skinny Jeans + Lace-Up Boots

This outfit is a prime example of how Kate Middleton strives to be relatable with her clothing choices. Her sporty jacket, classic skinny jeans, and practical boots don't scream royalty but are staples nonetheless.

6. Furry Scarf + Sweatpants + Sneakers

You didn't think J.Lo would skip the opportunity to add a touch of glamour to her puffer jacket, did you? She did so in the form of a furry scarf, which will keep you looking warm and posh at the same time.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
