With the new season comes the infamous puffer vest and with the infamous puffer vest comes the fabled finance bro trope. For one reason or another, the cold-weather essential is a key element of the Wall Street and Midtown banker uniform. It's so ubiquitous there's even an Instagram page dedicated to chronicling its presence in New York, often spotted in pairs of Brads and Chads. But it seems Dua Lipa is here to add some edge to the now-hated piece.

While out in New York, presumably to meet baby Hadid, the pop star wore a white button-down, Puma suede classic sneakers, Eytys boyfriend jeans, and a cropped black puffer vest. While some might consider the puffer vest unnecessary over a button down, Lipa's cropped version makes the case for using it as an unexpected layer. If anything, it really is the perfect piece to wear when it's not too hot and not too cold. We'll give finance bros that much, even if their styling does leave much to be desired.

Considering back in summer Lipa made us strongly consider wearing crochet care bears as a bikini, there's no doubt that her approval of the puffer vest will start a much-needed vest renaissance for fall. Especially if it was deemed worthy enough to meet Gigi Hadid and Zayn's offspring. This is definitely the comeback Midtown never saw coming.
