41 Puffer Jackets That Are Perfect For Layering If You’re As Cold As I Am This Winter

The first few weeks of 2024 have proven to be very, very cold. All I want to do is wrap myself up in a blanket and never leave my bed. That being said, winter weather calls for the perfect style opportunity: layering. It’s quite literally the only way I get out of the house without freezing. If you don’t have a jacket on, you’re doing something wrong, queen. Plus, layering is the key to looking like a fashion icon in the winter. Ditch that blanket and replace it with a puffer jacket

In my opinion, puffer jackets are never not in style (unless it’s summer, that would be torture). Upon purchasing one of these jackets, you may find yourself wondering, “Why are puffers puffy?” (Or maybe that’s just me.) The jacket has a filling inside that creates little air pockets, which then trap your own body heat, making you ready to take on the winter. They are the perfect way to stay warm, and they’re super versatile, with styles ranging from cropped to super long. Much like a puffer, I’ve got your back. I’ve compiled a list of 41 puffer jackets that are sure to keep you toasty and stylish throughout the rest of winter 2024.
