Told you puffers are making a trendy fashion statement!

The toffee followed me home. (I ordered the red first - but it's NOT tomato red as the photo suggests. It's a lot more muted in person, and not "my red" - but might be yours).

It's Zara, but VERY well made. I was shocked. It looks like a designer piece. Stunning hardware and pipping detail. Genius positioning of the quilted paneling both in the front and back - VERY slimming. And fitted on the waist too. Gorgeous curved hem. The fabric has a sheen to it, which, along with the hardware gives it a dressier vibe. The tailored silhouette creates a more polished look.

You have to have a long neck to wear this style because the collar does not fold down. The furry neck inner is very cozy too. (AND there is a pop-out hood). Best on a smaller bust and defined waist. Runs small and narrow, but not short. Size up for broader shoulders. Looks good zipped and unzipped.

I LOVE my new glitzy short puffer, and will wear it with dressier items too.
