Five Puffer Jackets With Panache

November 12th, 2009


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.

    I’ve always been of the opinion that puffer jackets are extremely difficult to pull off without looking like the michelin man… you don’t want too much puff. I’m trying to picture the puffer jacket + dress + leggings combo and it’s just not working for me.

    I love the American Eagle coat. I always get a puffer coat for winter as they are much warmer as a wool coat and great for rainy days (I live in Ireland) and I am constantly searching for unusal colours, styles.

    i love the belted puffer. just about as close as down can get to a good classic trench.

    I am a huge fan of puffy jackets – especially since I have to deal with Canadian winters! I’m absolutely in love with the Martin + Osa jacket. So classy! I also like the orange AE one too!

    I myself own one dark brown one from the Canadian company, RW&Co. I’m looking to purchase a longer version for colder winters. I found out that Eddie Bauer has great puffy jackets with the technology to boot!

    I have a knee-length down Patagonia puffer jacket that keeps me warm, but is cut in a feminine way and isn’t bulky. It has a chevron pattern to flatter and slim and is my staple winter coat.

    I’ve been wearing puffers for 2 or 3 winters now. This year I’ve settled on a Mont bell ultra light jacket that I think is just great.
