I had a chance to catch up with a few of my girlfriends last night and we got on the topic of puffy coats and whether or not they could be fashionable. As an owner of a few fashionable puffy coats myself I don’t feel any shame when I’m wearing mine around town. To be fair living in Chicago during the Winter months allows you some leeway between fashion and function. Of course there are occasions where I question a woman wearing a puffy coat when she is going bare legged in heels. You can be hot or you can be cold, but you can’t be both at the same time. So as long as your outfit is winterized I say go for it – stay warm, be bold, wear a puffy coat.
