These $98 Puffer Coats Are a Cute AF Alternative To Black — Plus, the Freshest Ways to Style Them
For me, coat outfits go one of two ways: the thoughtful route when I've put thought into my look (even if it's the tiniest effort) and "survival" mode when I care zilch about what I'm wearing and just need a warm layer to brave the elements (these moments include walking my dog, running errands, and heading to a workout). When it comes to the latter, I default to a black puffer coat every time. And yes, I have several. Two mid-weight versions (one with a hood, one without), a cropped number (this one's particularly pillow-y), two knee-length styles (one has a waist-cinching belt while the other is straight and loose — my pick on days when the food baby is real), and an ankle-grazing maxi coat (this one's the big boy; a snowpocalypse-proof piece of outerwear that's more or less a glorified down comforter with pockets and a zipper).
Despite being quite the black puffer coat enthusiast, I'm totally into the playful versions that have made their way into the spotlight in recent seasons. Have I rocked a floral-print or pastel puffer? Not yet. Am I going to? Oh yeah! Am I'm doing it on a budget thanks to these supercute puffers from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's, all of which are $98. That's less than $100. For a puffer coat. Correction: cute AF puffer coat.
From the prettiest shade of pink to black-and-white plaid and a black floral print that's edgy-sweet (my ideal foray into the world of printed puffers), these affordable puffers are the "but make it fashion" answer to the basic lineup hanging in my closet. There's even a quilted denim style for chilly but not-too-cold weather that I'm all about trying with casual pants, skirts, and printed dresses.
