Out and about in Amsterdam and once again rocking a few trends at the same time. One of my favorite trends is the quilted puffer jacket. This post is a little overdue, as we are already entering spring real soon, but hey you can wear the trend well along into the new season too. especially here in chilly Amsterdam.

As much as I love classic pieces, I am a huge fan of new trends.  I love renewal, so I always pick up on the latest and freshest styles.

It has been cold still and this particular puffer jacket has been my life vest for the past weeks. No need to layer much. Just throw it over a sweater and I am warm and comfy. So while we're at it, let me share a few tips on how to wear the puffer jacket.

Emiel and I shot these photos on the Skinny Bridge  also known by the Dutch as The Magere Brug. It's one of the most beautiful bridges in Amsterdam.  This wooden drawbridge was once so narrow that it was hard for two pedestrians to pass each other. To cope with increasing traffic on the Amstel, a wider bridge replaced the narrow original in 1871.

When the sun sets The Skinny Bridge is a popular attraction for romantic couples and photographers and with the thousands of lights illuminating the charming bridge it's easy to understand why right? 

The local legends tells that the Skinny Bridge was named after the 'magere zussen' (skinny sisters). These two well-off sisters lived on opposite sides of the river. They are said to have had the wooden bridge built to make it easier to visit one another.

"Up your coat credentials with the cold weather favorite of the season; the puffer jacket". 


To be honest with you guys  I was never a real fan of the puffer jacket. The reason I love fresh new trends is the fact that I can totally change my mind about certain fashion pieces and start loving it to a point that I am totally obsessed with it. I am not sure if this is a good thing, because once the trend has faded, I might hate it again and wonder what I was thinking wearing it in the first place.  We live and learn, right? My closet is still overloaded with trend pieces from 2012 I wouldn't want to be caught dead in right now. So nowadays I do pick up on a  new trend more carefully. After spotting the puffer jacket on the Paris and Milan runway shows, this trend has totally won me over.

In my opinion, the key to pulling off any puffer coat the cool way is to add a dash of edginess by wearing it with studded leather pieces. I grabbed my favorite leather skirt, a studded bag from Michael Kors. and a sexy pair of fishnet sheers from Hunkemoller for that "I am with the band" vibe.
  
Other fabulous combos are the puffer jacket with a pair of distressed denims.  Suede sweatpants and a pair of heels, or think a leopard skirt and a lace crop top for a chilly night out. No need to worry about freezing to death while still looking on point.

 Stylist Tip: "Throw it way back and champion those 90's nostalgia vibes with a cropped quilted jacket in a sweet pastel shade, or opt for an oversized style to up your street style cool"
