A fashion trend that gets both your mate’s and your mum’s approval? AW16’s fave coat does just that and as you've probably noticed, the puffer jacket is back with the kind of vengeance usually seen only in Liam Neeson films thanks to designers like Balenciaga, Carven and Acne.

Velvet, satin, traditional, boxy, long, hooded, funnel necked… The choice is endless. We’ve done all the hard work and nailed the 18 best styles to buy. We’re nice like that.
