Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe Just Proved This Outerwear Trend Is Here to Stay
The puffer coat trend is still going strong in the New Year. Just take a glance at Reese Witherspoon’s Instagram post if you need more proof that this cozy, fluffy, super-warm outerwear piece isn’t disappearing from the fashion scene anytime soon (at least not for the next four months).
Witherspoon shared a photo of her and daughter Ava Phillippe, who’s her actual doppelgänger, posing in front of what appear to be snow-covered mountains. As such, it’s safe to assume the family trekked to a chilly locale that required some heavy-duty winter wear.
So, what do you pack when you go somewhere spine-chillingly cold? As a Minnesota native, I’ve experienced my fair share of below-zero days (last year, we even hit a low of negative 50 degrees Fahrenheit!), so I can confidently say that I know all about these cold-weather essentials. Shearling-lined boots, like the ones Katie Holmes wore last month, are an absolute must, as is a thick, warm coat that ideally doesn’t weigh, well, 100 pounds.
Enter Moncler jackets, whose impressive celeb fan base has built up over the years to include the likes of Naomi Campbell, Priyanka Chopra, Sanda Bullock, and Reese and Ava — and for good reason. The label’s outerwear pieces are sleek yet sporty in their aesthetic, and smartly designed with Moncler’s signature lightweight, direct-inject down fill that keeps you warm without weighing you down.
The coats don’t come cheap, though, ranging anywhere from $800 to $3,000. But perhaps the best example of why they’re definitely worth their hefty price tag is Reese herself, who has owned her long black Moncler coat for (at least) 10 years. The star wore the same Moncler puffer in 2010 as she did for her photoshoot with Ava on January 2, 2020. Now that’s a true testament to the brand’s coats, both in terms of their long-lasting quality and enduring style.
Whether you live in a chilly locale or are simply planning to visit one in the near future, consider adding a Moncler puffer to your cold-weather lineup. You’ll be so happy to have it on hand once the temperatures drop below 30.
