Wearing a puffer coat in the winter used to not be cool or chic — it used to be a signifier that it was finally so cold out that you didn’t care what you looked like. (That is, unless you are smart and never put fashion over function.)
Those days are way behind us, though. Brands all over the spectrum, from Aritzia and Topshop to Everlane and Ganni, are churning out puffers that are just as cute as they are truly warm. We’ve pulled together some of the very best ones out there right now, ranging from lightweight to heavy-duty.
It also feels important to shout out the heavily discounted styles from American Eagle (all of the brand’s puffers are 40% off right now!), along with one of the JW Anderson x Uniqlo jackets that I cannot believe didn’t sell out. Check those out, along with a handful more, below.
