Looking for a new way to wear your favourite puffer this season? We’ve got the lowdown on how to style a puffer jacket, for all the looks you need.

Street style

Street style and puffer jackets go hand in hand. For this look, it’s all about making a bold statement, while still staying comfy. 

To get the look, pair your favourite puffer with slim-fit jeans, a graphic T-shirt and a pair of classic sneakers. Accessorising with a beanie and a minimalist backpack can add an extra dose of style.

For a more polished look, layer your puffer jacket over a crisp button-down shirt and tailored trousers. It’s an easy combination that works just about anywhere.

Winter adventuring

Looking for the perfect puffer jacket outfit for those cold-weather adventures? When the temperature drops, your Napapijri puffer jacket becomes essential. The key to the ultimate wintery style is how you layer.

So start with a thermal base, add a fleece or wool sweater, and top it off with your favourite puffer. Then, don’t forget accessories like insulated gloves, a bright scarf, a beanie or a wool-lined hat.

If you’re headed off on a snowy escapade, pair your puffer jacket with waterproof trousers and sturdy boots or snowshoes. Whites and pale tones are classics in the snow, but don’t be afraid to go for contrasts. You’ll also get some extra visibility in the powder.

Urban exploration

You’ll need an outfit that lets you move when out in the urban jungle. So keep both durability and comfort in mind. Pair your puffer with rugged cargo pants and a long-sleeve t-shirt for a go-anywhere look. Then add a pair of sturdy, waterproof boots to conquer the urban terrain.

For accessories, consider a waterproof watch and a compact, crossbody bag for those essentials. Add in a beanie for some classic puffer coat street style.

Evening smart casual

Transitioning your puffer jacket for an evening smart casual look is easier than you think. To start, choose a dark-coloured puffer, such as black or navy. Then pair it with a fine-knit turtleneck sweater and dark-wash jeans for a sleek, streamlined look. Next, elevate the outfit with leather or leather leather-look pieces. Chelsea boots and a matching belt work perfectly.

Want to add a touch of elegance? Opt for a stainless steel watch. For men, the result is a men’s puffer jacket outfit that’s ideal for dinner dates or other evening events where you want to look polished but relaxed.

Women can create an easy puffer coat outfit with the very same basics. To finish, just pop on some statement jewellery such as big hoops or a chunky necklace to add an easy, after-hours feel.

Weekend getaway

If you’re headed off for the weekend, you’ll no doubt find your puffer jacket becoming one of the most versatile pieces in your luggage. 

For a relaxed look for the day, pair your jacket with a comfortable crewneck sweatshirt and joggers. Then add in a pair of stylish sneakers. Perfect for catching a bite, exploring a new town, or just hanging out.

Or, for those chilly evenings, add to the outfit with a woollen beanie and scarf. It’s a look that’s ideal for night-time sightseeing, hitting the streets or casual dinners.

Keeping active outdoors

When it comes to staying active outdoors, your puffer is ideal, keeping you moving freely while helping you stay warm. So pair yours with some moisture-wicking base layers and stretchy bottoms for maximum mobility. Add a warm mid-layer like a fleece if it's especially cold out.

When it comes to footwear, grab a pair of hiking boots for rugged terrain or insulated snow boots if there’s been sleet or snow. A woollen headband, thermal gloves, and a sleek backpack keep this puffer jacket look all about low-key street style.

More puffer jacket styling tips and tricks

Looking to master the art of crafting the perfect puffer coat outfit? Here are some extra tips to keep you ahead of the game.


Don’t forget to accessorise when it comes to crafting your puffer jacket style. Scarves, hats and gloves can all add colour and texture. Opt for items that contrast with your jacket or choose complementary tones for a more easygoing look.

Bags are a great accessory option, too. A crossbody bag or a sleek backpack can mean an extra pop of style and handy storage.

Seasonal colours

How best to style a puffer jacket changes with the seasons. In autumn, think about layering your puffer jacket over a long-sleeve tee, then add a lightweight scarf. Then as winter approaches, replace the scarf with a thicker, woollen option and add a knit beanie and mittens or gloves. In early spring, your puffer is still on trend. Wear yours over a hoodie or light cable knit sweater.
