Whether or not hitting the ski slopes is in your future, winter temperatures are here for at least a few more months. And aside from the pros, no one did sporty fashion (before athleisure was a thing) better than Princess Diana. 

Although she was endlessly photographed in everything from ball gowns to bikinis, it is Diana's leisure looks that continue to inspire our off-duty style decades later. Case in point: her red puffer jacket. It was simple yet statement-making (you couldn't miss her on the mountain), and we love this piece not only for its place in one of the world's most iconic wardrobes but also because it is the epitome of both practical and chic

While Princess Diana's red ski jacket was likely of the more technical variety—she wore it to exercise, after all—we've found 11 similar styles that will suit any winter-weather leisure look from Aspen to the Alps, including a nearly identical $75 option from H&M. Keep scrolling to find your perfect red puffer to wear all winter; no ski boots required.
