Winter fashion, especially outerwear, is a great equalizer in terms of style. The most cutting-edge outfit won’t matter when the wearer is bundled up, and even the most shapely figures tend to disappear amongst the layers. Luckily, the puffer coat is a stylish solution. These lightweight, ultra-cozy coats have been around since the 1930s and get updated every season to reflect trends in color, cut, and details. Locals can bundle up in puffer coats and jackets sold by several boutiques and shops around town. Read on for a compiled list of where to buy puffer coats in Hoboken and Jersey City.
