Olivia Wilde was all smiles seen leaving the gym this week. Her post-workout ensemble consisted of sleek leggings, Hoka running shoes, and her trusty Stanley Cup Tumbler, but our eyes went straight to her red puffer jacket. It’s the J.Crew Puffer Jacket with PrimaLoft insulation, and it just so happens to be at a major markdown today. Already on sale for 10 percent off, you can add the code EXTRA for a whopping total savings of $115 — but hurry, sizes are selling out fast.
The J. Crew Cropped Puffer jacket is not only on-trend in cardinal red, but also supremely functional for transitional whether, where chilly mornings and breezy afternoons will dominate the coming days. The jacket, which still remains in stock in beige, black, and white colorways, features sustainable construction in 100 percent recycled nylon and PrimaLoft (a down alternative) insulation, which will keep you warm and toasty in steep temps without bogging you down. Its cropped, slightly boxy fit with pops of pink lining and gold buttons lends polish to a variety of outfits — and, even better, allows for layering, making it suitable for office attire or an extra cozy day in sweats. Regardless, it makes a statement even on your most low-effort days.
Customers are loving it, too, with many commenting on the oversized shape and gorgeous color, a red-hot trend we’ve seen all over the runways. One tester said, “The red is stunning and I am not the red coat type. It’s beautiful and playful and perfect for spring.” Another raved, “I bought this in ‘natural’ and went back and ordered it in black because I loved it so much. It does run a little big, but it’s outerwear so I wouldn’t want it too fitted anyway. I find it to be a cute spin on the traditional longer puffers from past seasons which I also own. It fits perfect on my 5’2” frame.”
As spring inches closer and closer, we foresee styling this piece like a bomber jacket with high waisted jeans and a vintage band tee, or with a winning combo of a slip dress and white t-shirt. It’s ideal with the ever-changing temperatures and guaranteed to get compliments, but be sure to jump on this deal — limited stock means it’ll likely be gone by season’s end.
