Which colour puffer jacket

Ok I'm absolutely useless at making a decision. I love this puffer but I can't decide on a colour. Which of these would you think would be most adaptable and go with the most? I like the reflective silver the best but they don't have my size angry.
Not usually quite as nervous about a purchase but I have to order from the US so returning it is a massive pain if it's not right.
Thank you!

I vote burgundy, really nice shade for winter

The cream, more of a neutral for me smile

Both are very versatile and can be worn with almost everything within a certain range of colours.

What colours do you tend to wear?

Straightaway the Burgundy has a clear advantage - it won’t show dirt nearly as quickly.

Hmm you're right about showing the dirt actually. I hadn't thought of that. I think I'm a bit more drawn to the burgundy actually but I have a pair of cherry red doc martens that I wear quite a lot and I think it might be a bit too matchy matchy...

Nah it’d be fine. Just mix it up with a contrasting scarf/bag/hat. 🙂

Provided you are not a pale skinned blonde, the burgundy will be nicer. It would overpower a pale person

It depends on the skin undertone. If it’s warm it should be fine, regardless of how pale.

Thanks for your thoughts everyone. No I'm dark haired and olive skinned so I don't think it would be too dark a colour

Then I'd say you could carry off either colour. Personally I love the Burgundy.

Burgundy is one of my favourite colours for autumn/winter. I pair it with other deep, warm colours, and add something contrasting to avoid too much matcha-matchy. For example I often wear burgundy boots and a burgundy beret, but then I’ll make sure to wear a leopard print scarf and some olive green gloves. Or I’ll wear burgundy boots and a burgundy bag with a rust coloured jacket and a navy scarf. Etc etc.

It’s actually a really versatile colour.
