There are a few reasons puffer jackets have been a longtime favorite among the fashion set, making numerous appearances fashion month after fashion month all over the world. First, they’re super comfy, secondly, they keep us warm on even the most frigid of days (my NYC colleagues can attest to this), and thirdly, they’re perfect for hiding that hideous bulky college sweater you’re secretly wearing underneath.
On my hunt for one perfect puffer jacket for my upcoming travels, I stumbled upon a stylish slew of them from Andrew Marc and Marc New York—we’re talking everything from modern bombers to long dusters and everything in between. Sidenote: I also spotted a few non-puffer options that are so good they needed a little moment here too. (The suede moto? Um, yes.) Keep reading for all 11 of my favorite jacket picks. I’ll be sitting here patiently waiting for puffer-jacket weather.
