Styling a Puffer Coat For The Snow
There’s a chill in the air and snow on the ground; do you know what that means? Time to get your Winter wardrobe started.
I got a head start by sourcing this beautiful, like-new, baby blue Sam Edelman puffer coat on thredUP this summer. (You may have seen it in my summer outfit dump!)
I have been waiting patiently for the temps to start dropping so I could style it! I got lucky and it happened to be cold AND snow.. and it’s only November.
But this isn’t a weather blog, we’re here to talk about fashion. Mainly how cute this thrifted puffer coat is and how I got it that way.
(To be fair, I’ve had some practice with a thrifted puffer coat outfit before!)
The Perfect Puffer Coat
This puffer coat hits all my criteria for a winter coat which is that it has to be colorful, fun, and functional.
Over the years, I’ve become a fan of puffer coats but they normally come in dark colors, which I understand has more mass appeal than a rainbow-colored puffer coat. But I lucked out finding this light blue Sam Edelman jacket from thredUP. (My other raspberry-colored puffer coat was Lands End – also found on thredUP!)
How I Wore My Puffer Coat In The Snow
This coat has so many color combination possibilities! Though for its inaugural wear, I wanted to go with head-to-toe pastels. While it’s technically Fall and autumnal colors rule; the white snow is the perfect blank canvas to wear whatever colors you feel like.
I went with a newly thrifted blue waffle knit sweater, my favorite skinny jeans, and some accessories from Maurices that I’ve had for a few seasons now.
I also chose a thrifted pink scarf and funky pin to tie the colors back into the hat! (Note: I opted out of gloves because of how little I was actually outside + it’s not actually that cold when it’s snowing)

Giving Winter The Boot
