Classic coats like the camel wool coat and black peacoat belong in almost every woman’s wardrobe. And though they’re my favorite style to wear, sometimes the weather demands just a little bit more (I’m looking at you, all-day blizzard warning). But the problem with a lot of women’s puffer coats is that they tend to look more outdoorsy and slope-ready than timeless and chic. So I did a little digging to find you the best options for puffer coats you can wear this winter season that will complement, if not make, your outfit.
The criteria: minimum of a 4-star rating, majority of positive reviews, varying budgets (but under $300), loved for its warmth capabilities, and of course, chic!
The shiny, but not too shiny, patent finish sets this coat apart and turns it into a fashion statement.
What reviewers are saying: Color is just wow. And the jacket itself is amazing….highly recommend
2. H&M Oversized Water-Repellent Down Coat
It’s giving Toteme. But really, this bonus oversized scarf takes this coat to runway level.
What reviewers are saying: Great quality. Their down coats are unmatched. Don’t sleep on them. Great value and fashion-forward…
Marshmallow vibes but in the best way.
What reviewers are saying: Whoever designs HM puffers needs an award. I always love them. I’ve bought 3 over the last two winters, the style, the warmth, they are always hitting!!
4. H&M Knee-Length Down Jacket
This shade of brown is not a color you see a lot on coats and it’s refreshingly chic.
What reviewers are saying: If you’ve been in the midwest you know how cold it gets so I wanted to make sure I was getting something warm and cozy for the winter. This jacket is so perfect!…if you’re on the fence about this one, don’t be, go for it!
5. H&M Oversized Puffer Jacket
Yes, it’s very oversized, but that’s what makes it look cool. And if you’re tired of black coats, try this dark khaki green instead. Still versatile, still stylish.
What reviewers are saying: Very cozy and warm and just the right length! Hits right below the waist… Love the earthy color too. I usually wear a medium and XS was perfect, so runs big!
6. Everlane The ReNew Long Puffer
No-frills coat with oversized pockets. Simple. Stylish.
What reviewers are saying: I love this coat. It’s super warm and very cute. It’s got an interesting shape to it that I really like. A 10/10 coat perfect for cold Canadian winters.

8. Orolay Down Coat Mid-Length
What gets chicer than the classic black-and-white color combo? Plus, that subtle hi-low hem elevates this coat and sets it apart.
What reviewers are saying: It’s difficult to find a decent coat! I wanted comfort and warmth, but shower resistant. I wanted a longer length with a snug hood. I wanted style. I got it all with this gorgeous coat!
9. Orolay Thickened Down Jacket
If social media has a favorite puffer coat, it’s this one.
What reviewers are saying: I’ve seen this coat all over social media and eyed it but never took the plunge, and then I saw that it was on sale and I couldn’t resist…Overall, I give this a perfect rating because it’s amazing, light-weight, and soooooo comfy cozy.
From neutrals like cream to striking colors like lemon yellow, this coat has a color for every personality. The matching scarf adds extra warmth while also being super chic.

11. L.L.Bean Ultralight Long Down Coat
Simple and streamlined design that gets the job more than done.
What reviewers are saying: I love this coat. I’ve had it for 7 years; it kept this Cali girl warm through Chicago winters & the Texas deep freeze of spring ‘19….would definitely buy again!
Things to love: The cinched-in waist, the not front-and-center logo, and the perfectly oversized look.
What reviewers are saying: I live in Utah and we have been having lots of below freezing temps and this jacket has kept me warm! No seat warmers in my car needed, and I only had a thin long sleeve underneath. Internal drawstring is really nice to sinch the waist a bit more – definitely recommend!!
13. Eddie Bauer Frostine Down Jacket
A shorter length option with a chic color combo? Yes, please.
What reviewers are saying: Very comfortable, warm! Just what I needed living in the mountains!
