Although puff jackets reliably provide warmth, they don’t always make a fashion statement, being bulky, heavy and unflattering. Well, not anymore.
Puff jackets have come a long way, and today’s versions are lightweight, slimming and easy-to-pack. Ready to add a new one to your wardrobe? Here are our favorites for a variety of cold-weather needs.
