At this point I think it’s safe to say that the quilted jacket is the style of the season.
The Frankie Shop’s oversized quilted jacket has proved one of the most coveted items of the year, selling out time and time again.
It inspired the high street to follow suit, with quite literally hundreds of similar jackets and coats emerging that gave the label’s a run for its money.
Of course, the trend first started at Fashion Week. Puffers and quilts were seen time and time again on the catwalk, with Prada, Stand Studio, Givenchy and many more sending iterations of the equestrian-inspired outerwear down the runway.
Meanwhile quilted vests, which reigned supreme in 2020, are back again too. As much as I love these, I do live in Britain, so they won’t keep me warm for long.
That’s why I’m focusing my attention to the jacket version, which will last me a lot longer.
There are a surprising number of ways to wear them, and while they were previously worn as an exclusively practical choice, they’ve come a long way.
The silhouette has changed from a tight-fitting and not-so-flattering cut, to an oversized and more casual silhouette.
This has opened up the trend to so many more (me included), making it one of this winter’s most wearable looks.
