How to brave winter in style? Pull out a puffer jacket, of course. These casually chic jackets are super warm (thank you, down filling), and they can add a bit of life to more formal clothes. Try a puffer with a dress (+ tights/leggings) and boots - it’s amazing how chic this looks. Here’s our five favorite puffer jackets to keep you warm this winter:

Ribbed Sleeve Down Jacket | $98 at Gap
Get the best of both worlds - the warmth of a puffer with the slim, trim silhouette of a sweater on your arms. Maybe it’s not quite slimming, but it’s as close as you’re going to get with a puffer.
AE Puffer Coat | $119.50 at American Eagle
We’re enchanted by this bright orange color. You’ll be seen wherever you go.
Puffer Jacket | $170 at Martin + Osa
This creamy slim fit puffer manages to be sophisticated, even for casual days.
Long Belted Puffer | $235 at J Crew
Warm up this winter with this rich plum colored puffer. We love the herringbone-esque striping on the puffer; the v-shaped lines make for a slimming effect.
Bubble Sheen Jacket | $32.80 at Forever 21
When you want to make a statement, try this shiny black puffer. Works for day with an asymmetrical top and jeans and night with a cocktail length dress.
