In the chic winter outerwear hierarchy, puffers are ranked fairly low. They get a bad rap for their rather inconvenient marshmallow-like bulk and their shapeless (read: unflattering) silhouette. But if last winter taught us anything, it's better to be down with down than ill-equipped to handle Polar Vortex–level temps.

With the looming chill fueling our search, we rounded up the prettiest padded pieces in cheery colors and fierce prints. From charming accents (like toggles and leather-look patches) to waist-cinching pieces that instantly whittle a slimming hourglass figure, we found 12 puffers that are as stylish as they are practical.
