There’s nothing I love more than a casual #OOTD that feels strongly put together – and in the winter, that usually calls for a puffer coat. But how exactly do you wear this winter essential without looking like a marshmallow? That’s what we’ll be covering today.

As ski-chic trends gain steady ground this season, you’re guaranteed to see more and more street style stars/influencers incorporate this piece into their daily outfits. Given the jacket’s practicality, it’s hard not to jump on the bandwagon. Fortunately, it comes in so many different silhouettes, cuts, and colors that are more wearable than ever. Keep scrolling for my tips on how to make a puffer coat look chic this winter.

Try a Monochromatic Outfit

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my fashion career, it’s that a monochromatic outfit never fails to look chic. Even with a puffy puffer layered on top, dressing head-to-toe in similar tones always comes off sleek and polished. Plus, it really seems like you know what you’re doing (even if you don’t). So whether you’re in the mood for a dress or trousers, throw on a matching puffer – and voila!

Rock A Statement Piece

Wile you can never go wrong with a classic neutral pick, it wouldn’t be my first choice – especially if you’re not already a fan of the puffer coat. Instead, go really bold and pair two unexpected pieces (like I did above). Whether it’s a glittery color, fluffy texture, or a leather puffer, layer it over a printed top or dress for a true statement-making effect.

Cropped is Cute

Still not convinced a puffer coat can be chic? Try a cropped jacket with high-waisted pants for a cute, retro vibe. The cropped silhouette gives your outfit a sporty-feminine spin that looks more sophisticated. You can then throw on shearling boots for the ultimate cozy winter look.

Give Your Outfit A Street Style Edge

The puffer coat doesn’t always have to be the focal point of your outfit. You can also use it to give a sophisticated outfit a cool-girl spin… For instance, layering it over a pencil skirt and boots, topping off your favorite dress, or pairing it with sleek, wide leg trousers. Wearing the puffer coat in this way simply adds a sporty accent that highlights the overall look.

Sometimes, the best way to rock the puffer is to wear it in its true form: all-out sporty. That means wearing it with leggings, denim, and/or joggers. If you want to spruce it up even more, then try patent leather leggings, cute kitschy prints, and bold colors. I love pulling these looks together for my girls too!
