Puffer jackets have been big (literally) for a few seasons now and that trend took another step forward with oversized futuristic styles in a host of vibrant colours. They’re a great investment too as you can layer them over virtually any style of outfit. Oversized short puffer jackets by [brand] and [brand] are perfect for both smart and casual looks, whereas long-line styles by [brand] and [brand] are real statement-makers. Look for details such as funnel necks, big hoods, or interesting quilt patterns and belted details. Use the jacket colour to create a tonal look - pair a beige puffer with neutral check trousers for example. Puffer bags are a cool way to finish off the look, too, along with tonal gloves and chunky Derby shoes.  

If you want proof that you can never be too cool for school, then this season’s preppy trend is it! It’s the perfect time to flex your vintage polos with contemporary varsity jackets and plug into some 50s nostalgia. The key item is the letterman jacket, and you can find great examples in bold colours at the likes of Tommy Hilfiger. Complement the jacket with straight-leg chinos by Moss Bros or go for a sportier look with trackpants by adidas and Under Armour. Either way, keep it colourful and relaxed, tapping into collegiate icons like the striped rugby shirt. Baseball caps and high-tops by Calvin Klein and Nike keep the streetwear cachet high and are a slick way to finish off the look.
