The first time you were ever encased in a puffy winter coat, chances are you more closely resembled the Michelin Man than a street style personality. So, we understand if you proceed with a bit of caution when navigating a warm yet potentially silly winter trend. But while everyone’s entitled to their own threshold for how voluminous their outerwear can be, let us assure you there are cool puffer coats out there that satisfy both your need to stay toasty and your desire to look your best.
Ahead, we’ve laid out 19 cold-weather essentials that feature unique textures, patterns, and colors. They offer fits that are both tailored and unapologetically cloud-like, depending on your preference. Furthermore, each puffer coat below will make for an exciting and interesting addition to any wardrobe. Keep scrolling to find one that not only speaks to you but is prepared to keep up with whatever winter has in store.
Look for unique textures, like this faux-leather iteration.
This partially puffed piece will be a real showstopper.
We're all about the glove-like sleeves and practical thumb holes.
Those oversize front pockets lend a utilitarian vibe to this design.
For a truly statement-making piece, pick a bright color… or a whole rainbow.
If stripes or plaid dominate the rest of your wardrobe, why not your winter gear as well?
The glossy-texture trend is infiltrating all garments this winter.
A beautiful color, such as this shade of teal, makes this style a must-try.
