Behold: Jennifer Garner on a walk through Brentwood, casually baffling onlookers in an outfit that defies reason. A delicate chain paired with her sporty athleisure ensemble, wearing no less than three shades of navy, and do we even have to say it? Leg warmers! Still, there's one element of her confounding look that never fails to spark controversy: the puffer vest.

Each and every fall, this contradictory piece rears its nonsensical head and causes a stir among critics and proponents alike. Detractors will say it's a waste of fabric — how can your torso be cold enough to warrant such heavy insulation while your arms flail about practically naked by comparison? Fans, however, recognize the puffer vest's singular abilities during these in-between seasons. They'll also argue, naturally, that it just looks cool.

Garner has no qualms letting the public know what side of the divide she stands, and she goes a step further. Her Xiren beige puffer vest is actually reversible, featuring a red bandana print on the reverse, making it essentially two puffer vests in one. Two puffer vests in one outfit! Now that's a bold statement for the haters.
