Kmart has released its new range of autumn/winter fashion and it includes a bargain $40 puffer jacket that’s a fraction of the price of similar jackets on the market.

The powder blue design caught the eye of Aussie Instagrammer @kmartinsider who noticed that an almost identical jacket is being sold for $170 at Decjuba.

A couple of people who have already bought it commented that they were thrilled with their purchase, saying, “I got this jacket the other day and love the colour,” and “I got one Kmart you did it again love it”.

It also comes in a caramel colour but some sizes have already started to sell out online. If you miss out, scroll down for more bargain options at the bottom of this article.

Kmart does it again

It isn’t the only popular puffer jacket on offer at the discount chain, and another Aussie influencer, Simone Marie, posted a video of herself trying the black collared jacket, which is also $40, on Instagram Stories saying, “I feel like I’m a little bit short in the sleeves but I like it.”

Meanwhile the longline puffer jackets, which retail for $49, are also doing the rounds on social media.

“Got the new longline puffer jacket, snug as a bug! Great quality for $49. I’d recommend going down a size as it’s a generous fit,” one person wrote on Facebook, while another said, “‘Stop, Puffer Time!’ True to size (slightly oversized) water repellent, HUGE hood, recycled padding in the longline”.
