Walk the streets of New York City in the winter time and you’ll find one common string running across its denizens: quilted puffer jackets. If you didn’t think it was possible to look stylish in a quilted puffer jacket, try again because you’ll need it to survive the biting wintry weather that dominates the city. The first two months of the year are the worst to deal with, so it’s mandatory that you keep your body warm and protected with this promising piece. But don’t fret just yet because you can achieve immaculate style by throwing the right pieces together – as I did.

Here are some of my tips for looking stylish in a quilted puffer jacket:

Try an offbeat, original style

I'm not one to run up to a puffer coat and assume it'll suit my personal style, but that's where details make all the difference in the world. I picked this particular cropped version for its airy soft texture and funnel neckline. It can almost pass for a wrap and looks amazing bundled or unbuttoned. I played down the volume with a slim fitting pencil skirt and stuck to monochrome black gear to achieve a figure-flattering ensemble.

 

Use texture and color to your advantage

If you’re not careful, you can easily look consummated by nylon. Luckily, it’s easy to prevent this issue by mixing up your quilted puffer jacket with different textures and austere contrasting colors. The softness of the knit top and structured leather skirt in today’s outfit depleted the airiness of the jacket. And then, the white booties broke up the black. Whether or not you’re wearing a single colored outfit, use texture and color to switch up a basic ensemble – even if that means wearing a bright statement puffer.

Consider your overall style

Before investing in this trendy number, take a look at your overall aesthetic and shop accordingly. For an androgynous, tomboy style, layer a thin down jacket with a wool overcoat. But for a ladylike look, grab a cropped version (like mine) and pair with a high-waisted piece. If your goal is to nail that professional city-girl vibe, a belted version with a furry hood works for even the dressiest days.

If all else fails, try a sporty piece

If you just feel entirely hopeless when it comes to styling a down puffer for the streets, go the the obvious: a sporty puffer. Something like this looks amazing with relaxed jeans, a statement knit, and bulky boots (or sneakers). Leave it to a sporty combo to keep your look uncomplicated yet casually cool.
