Puffer coats: so ubiquitous they might seem like the lowest common denominator of winter outerwearAfter all, anything you wear to Target at 2 a.m. on Black Friday because your little brother needs the newest xbox can’t be that cool, right?

Wrong. Choose well, and you can find a puffer coat that’s both stylish and warm—one that won’t give off even a whiff of Marshmallow Man vibe.

Below, three ways to wear a puffer this winter that’ll keep you looking cool while staying warm:

Option 1: Sleek ‘n Chic


Coat: Canada Goose | Pants: Brooks Brothers | Sweater: James Perse
Watch: Belk | Shoes: Cole Haan | Pants: William Abraham (similar)

 SG Says: Puffers don’t have to actually be that puffy. This one, from Canada Goose, cuts a slim figure without losing the warmth or the quilting.

Option 2: Upscale Outdoors

Coat: LL Bean | Pullover: Patagonia | Socks: J.Crew
Watch: Belk | Shoes: Nike | Pants: Topman

SG Says: The dressy joggers make the Patagonia and puffer combo feel at once more formal and less granola. Our favorite part, though, is the millennial pink-tinged sneakers and socks.

Option 3: Downtown Cool

Coat: ellesse | Overshirt: Obey | Beanie: Uniqlo
Wallet: Herschel| Sneakers: Converse | Jeans: AllSaints

SG Says: Puffers want to be outside—but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look cool. The cutoff hem on the jeans, along with the high-top Chucks (don’t forget a warm sock!) instantly elevate the jacket – and shacket – underneath.
