Fending off the Cold in Puffer Jackets

Since we are in the middle of a winter weather event I didn’t even know existed (a “bomb cyclone” – really???), and this very cold winter sadly seems to just be getting started, this is the time to make sure you have a seriously warm winter coat.  For these frigid temps and blowing snow, the only coat I’m wearing is my puffer from H&M (above).  This is actually a straight size coat that runs large, and I talk about the sizing here.  H&M also offers a very similar style in plus that goes up to a size 26:

They also have a flashy metallic version, perfect for fashion-forward winter looks:

If you are looking for high quality and unique structure, the Kanda Puffer from Universal Standard is the way to go:

If you are looking for a different color or length, I’ve rounded up the best options currently available in plus below:


You can also check out Simply Be’s coat section online – they update their styles all the time, and they have some really fun puffer jacket options too (they call them “padded jackets” though – UK fashion terms are always so interesting to me!)
