How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Puffer Coats

HSWI December 2014

With Aspen Chic comes puffer coats. If you want to stay warm you need to bundle up, but even more than that you need a good coat, usually a quilted jacket with down feathers or synthetic fibers. The two coats today are made with synthetic fibers and great for keeping you warm as you walk along the snowy streets of Aspen, shopping for gifts. These aren’t ski coats, but will keep you warm during your après-ski activities. Even if you’re not heading to the slopes this season, these are two outfits fit for mild winter weather. You’re bundled up and cute, but aren’t planning on trekking through much snow. They prove that puffer coats can look pretty adorable, just remember to keep your bottom half on the fitted side and layer up on top.

How She'd Wear It with Style and Cheek - Puffer Coats

1. Zara Shiny Puffer Jacket With Furry Hood

2. Gap Solid Knit Gloves in Charcoal

3. Dune London ‘Penelope’ Bootie

4. Adia Kibur Earring Set

5. Gorjana Knox Necklace

6. Rag & Bone The Skinny Distressed Mid-Rise Jeans

7. Wonderland Mojave Sunglasses

8. MADEWELL Marled Turtleneck Sweater

9. LA Made Ida Tee

10. Tory Burch ‘Thea’ Smartphone Wristlet Wallet

This is an outfit that at any stage of layering would be really cute. You’ve got the lightweight tee, the comfy turtleneck sweater, and then the shiny navy blue puffer coat all paired with skinny jeans and ankle booties. Keep the rest pretty simple, some charcoal colored knit gloves, a clutch to hold your phone, even a few pops of gold in your jewelry and stunner shades. You may think why bother with jewelry, but these pieces are simple, delicate and with such a cold color palette, it’s nice to have a little gold thrown in there. I believe a cup of cocoa would go great with this outfit.

1. J.Crew Authier® Fit Jacket

2. Chup™ For J.Crew SmartWool® Socks

3. Jeffrey Campbell ‘Stormy’ Rain Boot

4. Kate Spade New York Cueva Rosa Stud Earrings

5. TOPSHOP Cable Faux Fur Pom Beanie

6. TOPSHOP Heavyweight Ponte Seam Leggings

7. Wonderland Colony Sunglasses

8. Madewell Flannel Cargo Workshirt in Buffalo Check

9. J.Crew Merino Wool Belted Cardigan

I cannot get over how pretty this coat is. I’m not usually a puffer coat fan but this white J.Crew Authier® Fit Jacket has made me a believer. Paired with leggings, this outfit is really perfect for those balmy sunny 30-something degree days. The green plaid button-down and burgundy sweater are a classic color and fabric combo that by themselves with the leggings would be super flattering and cute. They’ll also make sure that even when you take off that beautiful puffer, you still have a few layers to stay warm. As far as accessories I kept this look very simple as well, with just studs and mirrored lens sunglasses.
