Let's face it - when it's below freezing, icy wind is blowing, and snow is falling, the puffer jacket is donned and the Michelin Man sightings begin. Do not fret, darlings. There is plenty of great style inspiration out there to help get us through the Winter cold with all our fingers and toes intact and still lookin' totes fetch. These nylon/down marshmallow coats are often the subject of love/hate debates. Although they may not be the most stylish outerwear piece, they are certainly the most practical in the elements. Stay warm and stay stylish by copying some of these outfits we've rounded up!
How to Style the Puffer Jacket
Belt It/Cinch It
Try a figure flattering dark palette and proportion-balancing slim bottoms to keep this puffy look stylish. A belted jacket or cinched waist is a definite plus.
A cropped, fitted style will show your waistline and keep you from being swallowed up in a ball of down.
Wear a chunky, high-neck sweater under your puffer for a little added warmth, and removing the need to zip the jacket (at least when it's not full on blizzard-ing).
Fur Makes All Things Better
Sure, the fur lined hood can be a fun Eskimo look. But what about adding a big, oversize fur shawl collar, snood, or scarf to the mix? Play it up. Layer a fur vest under your puffer. Add some drama to the look, and extra warmth!
Keep it Sporty
Distressed denim, lace up boots or sneakers, a beanie - athletic, sporty chic style keeps the puffer casual-cool.
Accessories that POP
Add some fun (maybe even neon) accessories to the mix. After all, you're wearing a puffy marshmallow jacket and it's snowing outside. Be a kid again - dress it up and add some whimsy!
The Fashion Girl
The Fashion Girl Drape: It's a thing, albeit a completely impractical thing for the everyday gal. However, to achieve the look in the Winter, layer a sweater and/or moto-style jacket under your puffer for extra warmth. If you're feeling like a fashionista.
