Puffer jackets and parkas are some of the most popular and versatile cold weather outerwear options. They are both practical and stylish, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Here are some ways to style puffer jackets and parkas with dress shirts for a chic and fashionable look.
Puffers and Parkas as suit jackets
Puffer jackets are not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about suits, but they can actually be a great alternative. Puffers are not only stylish and fashionable, but they are also incredibly warm and comfortable, making them perfect for colder weather. When selecting a puffer to wear as a suit jacket, it’s important to choose one that is well-fitted and has a clean, streamlined silhouette. Avoid overly bulky styles, as these can make your ensemble top heavy and difficult to pair with dress pants.
Puffers, Parkas and Color Go a Long Way
For a classic and polished look, try pairing a black puffer jacket or parka with a white dress shirt and black trousers. This is a timeless and sophisticated outfit that is perfect for a variety of occasions, from the office to a night out on the town.
To add a pop of color to your outfit, try pairing a brightly colored puffer or parka with a solid-colored dress shirt. For example, a red puffer jacket would look great with this Powder Blue Herringbone dress shirt, or a green parka with this Pale Pink & Proper shirt. These are fun and vibrant looks that are sure to turn heads. Try them out or play with your own color combos.
Puffers, Parkas, Casual styles and Patterns
For a more casual and laid-back look, try pairing your puffer or parka with patterned dress shirts. This is a great way to add some visual texture to your outfit. For example, you could wear a puffer jacket with a custom-tailored Lightweight Flannel plaid shirt and jeans for a casual weekend look. Pairing a parka with a patterned shirt – like this Diamond Squared print dress shirt – and slacks is a great move for more formal occasions.
