Classiest quilting! FEMAIL selects top-selling items to help you embrace the season’s biggest fashion trends

  • Alexandria Dale offers advice on how to embrace the quilted clothing trend for this season
  • Mui Mui, among others, featured quilting within their AW21 collections
  • Trend has been spotted on the Duchess of Cambridge and Emma Roberts 

WThe number of searches for this clothing item increased 1,300% after Kate Middleton, hen, wore a quilted vest on Tuesday. Most notably seen on Chanel’s iconic flap bag and Her Majesty, who loves a quilted jacket, this season the style has taken over. Loewe’s AW21 collection featured quilting by designers like Max Mara, Jonathan Anderson and Mui Mui. The high street is following their lead. Whether the traditional diamond pattern, or the new onion-shaped design — like on Mango’s collarless coat (below) — it’s a sleeker look than a bulky and padded puffer. You’ve never looked so stylish when keeping warm.
