To combat snow, freezing rain and gusting winds, the only functional outerwear option is a reliable puffer jacket. Ladies no longer have to stuff themselves into the shapeless creations from their childhood because brands like Gucci, Burberry and Balenciaga have reimagined the padded coats. High fashion designers have transformed the puffer jacket from a streetwear staple into a winter must-have item. We’ve rounded up our favorite options for the season that can fit a range of style needs.
Our favorite of the bunch is Gosha Rubchinsky x adidas Originals‘ longline puffer jacket. The hooded coat arrives in black with silver hardware on the zippers and white contrast logos. This piece is the perfect mix of sporty and casual for those who like to straddle the line. Other prime picks include Rick Owens‘ shell down jacket which eliminates the need for a scarf and MM6 Maison Margiela‘s standout silver option.
