Get Something Different
First, a plain puffer or quilted coat in black isn’t that exciting. It will keep you warm but won’t do much for you style wise. Opt for something that will stand out a bit from your other pieces. Go with a metallic (like this jacket), a bold color you love, or an interesting print. However, don’t go with something too on trend- you want to be able to wear it next year.
For example, I like the metallics since it gives a bit of a glam vibe to an otherwise basic coat. Also, it’s a little bit extra and I am here for it!
Along with a leather jacket, a puffer is something you can wear year after year. For instance, this puffer coat is from Old Navy from a couple of years ago. I’m wearing a large. I linked similar ones.
