The cold weather is slowly creeping up on us but despite the fact we haven’t yet hit winter, The Frankie Shop’s quilted jacket has already become one of the season’s biggest hits.
If that tells us anything, it’s that quilted outerwear is set to reign supreme again in 2021, which really comes as no surprise at this point.

Puffers and quilts were seen time and time again at Fashion Week, 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.
Sporty styles are timeless, but now more feminine prints cover puffers to create vintage-inspired pieces. Free People’s iterations are a shining example of this, as well as Freya Simmone’s floral jacket.
This has opened up the trend to so many more (me included), making it one of this winter’s most wearable looks.
