If we had to name the most unexpected outerwear trend of the season, it would be the swift return of the jacket style we wore in middle school. We're talking about the puffer jacket. Everyone from Gigi Hadid to Rihanna has been spotted in one (the latter celeb quite a few times), and we're really starting to see the appeal. It's an eye-catching look, for sure, especially if you opt for a bold color or an oversize silhouette. Plus, it will actually protect you from the elements.
The latest celeb to warm up to the idea is none other than Rita Ora. The singer stepped out to brave the chilly New York streets in Acne Studios' Baltimore padded down coat in a bright orange hue, and we definitely did a double take. Not only did she nail the trend in the color and fit department, but this particular one takes it to the next level with exaggerated armholes and built in off-the-shoulder styling. Talk about a statement piece. To balance out the bold coat, she opted for a sleek black turtleneck dress and flattering lace-up heels. Are you coveting this style as much as we are yet?
