a drop shoulder puffer


A super warm coat is pretty much a must in NYC once December hits, and especially into Jan and Feb. I’ve fought it for the longest, but after 11 years in the big apple, I’m finally adding a puffer coat to my collection. I’ve always stayed away from puffer styles because I couldn’t find one that was stylish enough and that I actually WANTED to wear. After years of “freezing” for fashion in the latest high street silhouettes that came in materials not quite warm enough for real winter, I’m happy to report that this Bernardo puffer is basically my first “real” winter coat, and I’m obsessed! It’s not the sporty puffer coat you’re used to. Think relaxed fit, drop shouldered, and boxy (in a good way). The army green color is an escape from the black coat uniform we New Yorkers tend to gravitate toward come colder months. And, since puffer coats are trending, I’ll be wearing it with jeans and dresses alike. Get ready for this puffer to make many a cameo on the blog!

    Puffer coats really are a double edged sword. Yes, they keep you warm but more often then not they make you look like a marshmallow in the process. I feel your sentiments, but unlike you I can’t suffer that much for fashion, it’s just too cold! I love this style though, the color is reminiscent of an army jacket and the shorter length enables pairing with a variety of silhouettes.

    Side note – you have some really interesting proportions happening in this look, and I like it!
