10 Ways to Wear a Puffer Coat

While Austin is admittedly warmer than many places this time of year, the past few weeks have had me digging into the depths of my wardrobe in search of warmer layers on more than one occasion. I love a good trench coat or jean jacket, but sometimes you just have to bring out the big guns– and by big guns I do mean the puffer coat. Nothing will ever be as warm as those down-filled, quilted pockets so, at a certain point, nothing else will do.  My love affair with them has grown the more I’ve seen them gracing fashion week photos and street style round ups.  Once relegated to ski slopes or extreme casualwear, I love seeing people styling them with chunky boots, cropped jeans, and even lady pumps. Keep reading for 10 of our favorites, a puffer coat shopping guide, and don’t forget to stay warm out there this weekend, friends!

  1. Great post! I used to live in Austin, but now I’m in Chicago… so I’m having to learn the ways of the puffer coat!!

      Haha! I guess so! It’s like high forties outside right now and you would think I was in a blizzard. I’m learning that I’m not very good at winter!

  2. I do need a new puffer coat but I think I’m going to wait until next year. I don’t feel like buying one now and only using it for another month or two!

      That’s probably a good idea… although I bet you can get them super cheap in about a month!
