Not to be the bearers of bad news here, but winter is upon us, and depending on where you live, that means it's only a matter of time before it gets frigid outside. There are plenty of outerwear trends, from chic leather trenches to cozy shearling styles, we're shopping this season. But if there's one style of coat we're reaching for when temperatures hit the near-freezing zone, it's long puffer coats that will up our defenses against the cold, rain, and snow.
Typically quilted and insulated with down or sustainable materials like recycled fibers, puffer coats provide the extra warmth we need when the going gets tough. It doesn't hurt that this season's offerings are as stylish as they are functional, are available in an array of colors, are cut in elevated silhouettes, and feature details like waist-cinching belts and asymmetrical collars.
To make sure you're aptly prepared for bone-chilling days ahead, we rounded up 24 of the best long puffer coats of the season. Keep scrolling to check them out, and nab one (or two!) for yourself while you're at it.
