On My Radar: Cute Puffy Coats

Puffy Coat. Puffy. Hmmmm, that couldn't sound much more unflattering, could it? Fat Coat. Maybe that's worse, but that's about it. If the thought of buying a puffy coat immediately makes you think diet, well, I've found you some options that have cute waists, and won't make you look like the Michelin Man. There are some occasions where a coat has to be functional and not just cute, i.e. shoots in the freezing cold outside all day, trips to Chicago in mid-winter, Titans games in get my drift. If you feel the same, check out these cute puffy coats on my radar this month.

Long Meribel puffer, $198.40, J. Crew
And it has a hood!

Long belted puffer coat, $128, Gap
I just bought this one from the Gap with my ungodly amount of store credit. I haven't given it a try in frigid weather, but I'll let ya know how it goes.

We The Free Down Puffer jacket, $298, Free People
The elastic detail at the waist will keep you looking like a girl
underneath all that down.

Puffa Parka, $550, Rebecca Taylor
Not many of us are in the market for a 550-dollar puffy coat, but it's oh-so-dreamy isn't it? I love the print!

My Meribel puffer in medium just arrived and I'm disappointed. It's totally a fat coat, not svelte at all...maybe I needed a small?

with my puffer coat, i definitely feel like i have an extra layer all over. the trick is to make sure that belt is very tightened so that people can tell you still have a waist! i think during the winter there's definitely an understanding that we all are wearing a few "extra layers"
