On the field of fashion, the down feather jacket is becoming a major league player.
Seen on both the streets and on the runways, the warmest of coats is back on track and enjoying a merry fashion revival. So keep an eye on exemplars that cross your path, as you’ll definitely need to add one of these ‘doudounes’ to your collection.
And now that we’re talking outerwear, don’t forget to stock up on some bomber jackets as well.
Key to success when it comes to down jackets:
- Think bold colours like red & pink.
- Oversized is a must: the bigger the better, it should be like the jacket is wearing you and not otherwise
- Fabric matters: nylon and polyester are definitely ok, but velvet deep blue or denim oozes fashion, as seen on the runway during Stella McCartney’s show.
Style your down feather jackets with a simple pair of jeans or make a statement by choosing for a monocoloured ensemble like my fashion idol ID fashion Editor Julia Sarr Jamois.
