These Outfits Are Proof Your Puffer Jacket Goes With Everything

I'll admit that before spending a snowy weekend in NYC last winter, I wasn't truly privy to the wonder that is the puffer coat. Not only is this jacket style incredibly warm (as in, hanging-out-by-a-fireplace warm), but thanks to the seal of approval from our favorite designers and style icons, it's also on trend for yet another consecutive season. My pick for F/W 18 is a printed option from Michael Kors that conveniently looks super cool with both my daytime and nighttime outfits. Talk about a win-win. Ahead, see two ways I'll be styling this pretty puffer from now until spring.

The slick material of puffer jackets naturally offers a sporty feel, so I like to lean a bit heavily into athleisure looks when wearing this coat during the day. Ideally, that means layering it on top of denim and adding in equally sporty sneakers, a belt bag, and aviators.

The floral print stands out in a sea of solid puffer jackets.

This simple black belt bag gets a 2018 update with the added chain belt.

No laces? No problem. Slide these sneakers on for an instantly cool athleisure-inspired look.

Classic aviators are great, but embellished ones are even better.

This black floral version also works quite well for nighttime. A miniskirt elevates the coat, while metallic and embellished accessories add that holiday feel I'm always trying to achieve this time of year.

In case you wanted a second look at my new favorite puffer.

I'll be wearing this festive skirt to every holiday party this year.

These are the only boots I want to wear during the holidays.
