How I Made My Puffer Coat Look Stylish

January 25, 2018

A puffer coat or jacket is a garment that most of us will wear more for practicality rather than for style. I personally have a couple of shorter styles for sporty situations; a vest for extra warmth and one long coat for really cold days. From time to time, I try to style them with chic pieces to totally transform their boring look.
The day of this fun photo-shoot was very cold, windy and as you can see, the snow was falling beautifully. I wanted to go outside and have fun with the weather but in order to stay warm, dry and safe, I needed the help of my ugly buddy...yes, I'm talking about my puffer coat.

One easy way to bring my puffer coat to the next level is by cinching it with a stylish belt. I practiced this styling with my puffer vest in this look here in 2013 and here in 2017.
I also found it very helpful to top my puffer with a roomier and longer coat such as a maxi trench. This is a great idea if you are like me and don't like the look of a puffy coat but you appreciate its functionality on very cold days.

That day, I didn't wear a scarf because the furry neckline and turtleneck kept me warm enough. I personally love the look of the turtleneck peeking out from the coat. I also traded a no-brainer beanie for a stylish and yet warm woolen hat.
Styling my puffer coat with cropped pants was a chic move, however, I had to wear them over leggings in order to keep me warm and dry.
I like the idea of wearing snow boots for outdoorsy situations, but for a day in the city, I much prefer a pair of stylish lugged sole combat boots. They can be very safe and warm if you wear them with appropriate socks.
All of these small changes made a big difference with the overall look of my boring but much-needed puffer coat. Although I don't believe there is no such thing as a stylish puffer coat, we can still give them a stylish approach.

The most flattering puffers for women are the ones shaped to the body. These styles can be cinched and effortlessly topped with roomier coats. See the examples below:

A great trench coat is a lifetime investment. I can't say enough about my appreciation for my green trench. It's versatile, timeless, extremely stylish, functional...etc, etc. I found similar choices for you to shop in case you don't have one:

White cropped jeans are undeniably chic, however, finding the right fit for your body type is the key to their versatility. Browse through the styles below in case you want to join the chic pants club:

In my honest opinion, every woman and man should have a pair of lugged sole shoes in their wardrobe. They literally can save your life!! They can prevent you from falling while walking on slippery grounds. These are the coolest combat boots with a lugged sole on the internet:
