We’ve officially hit that part of winter when it’s a given (in most parts of the country, that is) that it's going to be downright freezing basically any time you decide to step outside. Naturally, if you want to avoid frostbite, you're going to need a long puffer coat for winter to keep you warm when you have to face the elements—not just any insulated coat will do.
When it’s this cold out, you're going to need a long puffer coat that’ll cover not only your upper body and midsection but also your butt and thighs—two key areas that don’t get any protection with shorter jackets. Without the added length you'll get with a long puffer coat, you’ll be left walking around with the lower half of your body way more exposed—and chilly—than it needs to be. Plus, this winter longer-length and full-length puffer coats are actually one of the biggest outerwear trends you can wear.
And, since the long puffer jacket trend is alive and well this season, plenty of retailers have caught on to the need to stock up on plenty of different chic (and cozy) styles to help you get through the rest of winter. Of course, it’s also easy to get so overwhelmed that you’re paralyzed by choice. Let this be your guide to finding the best long puffer coats for winter.
