Puffer Jackets That Are Actually Flattering

We would never let you freeze in the name of fashion.

The best parts about the temperature dropping below 60 degrees are that the Lower East Side streets no longer smell of steaming sardine poison, and I get to discard my leaking Craigslist A/C window unit. But most of all, I can finally wear my treasured Saks Potts Fur Trim Trench Coat, the color of a Barbie Beach Cruiser or a lavender milkshake. But one thing is for sure: my majestic trench stands literally no chance against a slight winter breeze. I might as well be naked. We all have that one enchanting coat, whether it’s our grandmother’s chestnut mink fur, or some leather vintage gem. At the end of the day though, we all need a puffer jacket. If you’re like me, you fear the puffer. The agony of potentially looking like a seasonally depressed Marshmallow Man, or even worse, a Finance Bro. I would rather my lips turn blue during a smoke break than dawn a slim-fit Patagonia. 

But there’s no need to freeze in the name of fashion! Here’s a list of puffer jackets that are glamorous and all the rage, just like you. So, you don’t have to lose feeling in your fingers to be a trend-setter.
