If you follow me on Twitter or YouTube, then you probably already know that I am spending Christmas up north with my husband’s parents this year. I’ve lived in Florida for many years, so as you can imagine, I have a lot of warm weather wear to stock up on. Item number one on my list of “how to survive a northern Christmas” is a super warm and cozy coat, which is why I am in love with the quilted and puffer jackets that are emerging as the trend of the season. The thick insulated layer is bound to keep you warmer than a simple lined coat, no matter what the materials. I’m not a big fan of the puffer jackets that make you look like a big ol box, so I chose styles that are either cropped or cinched at the waist to give the illusion of shape amongst all those layers. Be sure to check out the links below for all of the color options available.
