These plush styles will keep you toasty in the bitter cold.
A puffer jacket is a winter wardrobe staple. Not only do the classic coats create a stylish, snow bunny look, but they keep you incredibly warm while remaining comfortable and lightweight. And it doesn’t take a stylist to figure out how to wear the timeless basic. Just throw a down jacket on top of your warmest layers and winter accessories and voilà, you’re ready to brave the cold. The best part? You stay toasty and look effortlessly put together.
Whether you like yours hooded (so you can seal in heat when you forget your hat at home), long enough to cover your backside, or easily packable for on-the-go warmth, there are plenty of puffer styles in bright, neutral, and even metallic options. If you need a practical layer to throw on for a morning walk or you’re hitting the slopes on a much-needed winter vacation, we rounded up our favorite puffer picks from Nordstrom, Talbot’s, Levi’s, and more.

32 Degrees Lightweight Packable Jacket
If you’re looking for a steal but still want a quality item, it doesn’t get much better than the varieties available at 32 Degrees. This jacket rings in at just $25, and it’s surprisingly warm while cut in a slightly tapered fit. It also comes in neon colors for those searching for a statement jacket.
Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Shiny Puffer Jacket
Uniqlo is a perennial go-to for packable puffers. We love this shiny navy option, but the plush jacket is available in five other neutral colors.
Nap Loungewear Matte Quilted Puffer Jacket
If you’re looking for a heavy duty puffer jacket, we love this feather-filled option from Nap Loungewear. It also comes in ivory and grey and when you wear it, it’ll feel like you have a cloud wrapped around your body.
Amazon Essentials Long-Sleeve Full-Zip Hooded Puffer Coat
Amazon makes a line of affordable fashion essentials, including their take on the classic puffer jacket. With nearly 3,000 five-star reviews and an under-$35 price tag, this option is an easy yes from us. We love the olive color for when you’re tired of wearing dreary black in winter but still want a muted hue, but it comes in 15 other exciting colors like bright red and mint green.
Talbot’s Faux Fur Trim Hooded Alternative Down Parka
Talbot’s take on the timeless coat comes with a removable faux fur-lined hood, defined waist, and snap pockets that’ll keep your keys and phone secure while you’re out on a winter jaunt.
Abercrombie Lightweight Packable Puffer
Abercrombie’s hooded puffer is so lightweight and packable that it fits into a tiny little drawstring bag that’s small enough to keep in your purse (or toss in your luggage) for when you need a little extra warmth.
Abercrombie Faux Leather Mini Puffer
Faux leather is everywhere this season — from leggings to blazers, and even coats. Abercrombie’s faux leather take on the puffer style is cropped but still looks polished, making it easy to wear from day to night.
Levi’s Puffer Jacket with Faux Shearling Trim
Our hearts fluttered when we spotted the faux shearling details on Levi’s long puffer parka. Keep your hands warm in the deep front pockets and your ears protected from whipping winds by pulling up the generous hood that’ll feel so nice against your face.
Levi’s Puffer Jacket
Here’s another choice courtesy of Levi’s, but in a traffic-stopping hue. Opt for this bold and bright style if you already have a go-to neutral jacket. This version has a drawstring on the back that cinches in for when you want a more fitted silhouette.
Daily Ritual Standard Quilted Long Coat
This quilted puffer coat hits above the knee and is a perfect option to throw on when you have to run out for a few errands and don’t feel like getting dressed up underneath. It doesn’t hurt that it’s on sale for under $50, too.
Umeko Hooded Down Jacket with Adjustable Length
Instead of buying three separate short, medium, and long-length puffers, this 3-in-1 puffer coat has zippered sections you can easily remove to achieve all lengths. The timeless versatility can’t be beat.
Royal Matrix Metallic Puffer
The holidays are always a fun time to add some glitz to your wardrobe, and you can easily apply that philosophy to your puffer jacket. Stand out in this silver zip-up that costs a fraction of its high-end look.
Hill House Reversible Edie Puffer Jacket
Two jackets in one? Sign us up! Hill House’s reversible puffer features a ditsy floral print on one side, and a solid complementary color on the other, so you’ll never get bored of it.
Universal Standard Matterhorn Mid Hooded Puffer
Universal Standard’s high-collar style will look sharp layered over a sweater dress, but equally amazing over your favorite jeans, chunky cashmere sweater, or workout outfit. Given its versatility, it’s a coat you can reach for season after season.
Urban Outfitters Bestie Puffer Jacket
Puffer jackets don’t have to be boring and this pastel pink Urban Outfitters style proves it.
