Battling the subzero winter temps is a war in and of itself. Finding a jacket that will actually keep you warm and stylish when you step out in that icy chill is even harder. Sorry, peacoats, but you’re just not going to cut it. So, what’s the best solution for this frosty dilemma? The puffer coat, of course. And — okay, okay — before you start in on how this style is the furthest thing from cute (and, quite frankly, can make you look like the Abominable Snowman), just hear us out.
Despite puffers' sometimes bad reputation, we promise there are several options out there that’ll keep you toasty and chic. And, they could actually rival any embellished, brocade, super-fancy coat you have in your closet. So, if you're ready to avoid any chance of frozen digits when it's time to step into the arctic, then shop the 11 puff-tastic toppers ahead. You can thank us later when the below-freezing air feels like a sauna.
