Winter Wear | Puffer Coats

Winter 2013-2014 Down Coats >> HERE <<
Wind gusts, snow storms, sub zero temperatures. No, this isn’t your local weather forecast but it probably sounds something like it. Winter officially started one month ago and this bitter weather is already taking it’s toll. It’s time to start bundling up and one of the best ways to do that is with a puffer coat.
I remember telling someone, “I don’t wear snorkels.” When I left Boston I packed my puffer away and replaced it with a pea coat, and last year I traded the pea coat for a cape. In my mind they were much more fashionable than a puffy coat. I love my cape. It’s the cutest little thing but the fact is it’s not very warm. I find myself wearing four or five layers beneath it which leave me feeling heavy. I haven’t worn a puffer since my last winter in Boston, three years ago, but I think it’s time to bring it back out.
Singer Mariah Carey and actresses Rachel Bilson and Catherine Zeta-Jones are all wearing puffers to keep warm this winter. You should too. When choosing your puffer, look for styles with a belt, an empire waist, or slanted stitching so your figure doesn’t get lost under all of the puffs. Here are a few O So Chic picks to get you started.
