    So, I Own a Silver Puffa Jacket

    Yep, it's true:



    I used to absolutely love it. It's a real statement, and incredibly warm and practical. My girlfriend HATES it.

    It doesn't really go with my style anymore. I have contemplated selling it, but can't bring myself to do so.

    Is this garment totally unacceptable? I recall seeing a FaBe article on a catwalk show, which contained a few items of down-filled metallic outerwear. Can anyone recall it?

    Or can anyone think of a way to incorporate such a garment into a stylish ensemble?

    I think you should find some matching silver puffa trousers and silver high tops. Match rather than contrast, it's more subtle.

    Wow...just wow...haha.

    Not my cup of tea. I'd eBay it. Some people are still into that sort of stuff. It's definately a statement.

    All you need is a ginger wig and you've got the perfect fancy dress outfit!

    Tone makes a good argument; pink trousers would look great

    As wrong as it may be, I have a soft spot for everything metallic or glittery. I'm in love with these jackets (by John Richmond and Balmain):







    And these Moncler puffa jackets look very nice indeed:





    That said, even I believe you should put it up on e-bay. If you haven't had the urge to wear it lately, you'll probably never have it again, and it's almost impossible to pull off to begin with. If you keep it though, I really think it'll look amazing with pink trousers.

    Trainers and darker jeans will give you casual look, jumper and thats it.

    If you're really going to keep it, I'd pair it with some slim cargos, or khaki chinos. The silver/khaki combo is just awesome.
