Happy 2017! It’s January. It’s been an unseasonably cold winter for much of the country, it is far from over, and nothing will keep us warmer and offer protection from the elements than a puffer. Are you stumped as to how to style a puffy coat without looking like a dowdy marshmallow? To look chic in a puffy jacket is easier than you think. You’ll be warm and toasty and still stylish just by keeping in mind when styling the coat you must balance the bottom with slim and tight fitting items.
When looking for a puffer, try to find it in black and ones with faux fur on the hoodie (adds an instant chicness!). Also avoid your baggy mom jeans, and stick to slim skinnies or warm thick leggings. Adding chic accessories like a structured handbag and bold lipstick makes a big impact too. Do avoid more bulky scarfs that add more weight to your upper half.
To get my look, pair my favorite puffy coat from Shoes.com with oversized long denim, black skinnies (50% off), Michael Kors pointy-toe booties (50% off!), chic sunnies, and a Zac Posen structured bag.
