There comes a certain point in winter when the only outerwear layer that’ll suffice is a big cozy puffer. Wear beneath it whatever you please, but the icy temperatures warrant a down jacket basically every day from now until the end of March. Because of this, we all tend to feel pretty restricted when it comes to our wardrobes and the dreaded outfit burnout becomes uncomfortably nigh. The only solution is to treat yourself to an extra puffer or two (or, depending on how savvy your holiday sale skills are—more).
It’s a good rule of thumb to invest in one puffer that serves as the bread and butter; a neutral hue in a classic silhouette. If you’re venturing into your secondary puffer purchase, consider something in a bold pattern or a bright color. In other words, the more room you make in your closet for puffers, the more playful they can become.
If you’re not sure where to look aside from the usual suspects like Uniqlo, continue ahead for our roundup of the best brands that’ll help you feel snug as a bug in a rug all season long.
