It's definitely been cold these last couple of weeks in January however, I was happy to report that we hadn't seen a single flurry yet.  Of course, yesterday, I jinxed myself & we got a nice dusting of snow, so hopefully this post/link up are as timely and helpful to you as it was for me!   

I have needed to bundle & layer a ton lately for the cold, especially in the mornings & at night when I am commuting to and from work. Down jackets can be unflattering & frankly just make me feel like the Michelin man, but they are sooo warm, so I've come up with a few ways to make puffy coats & winter boots look flattering. 

3 ways to make your puffy, winter coat look cute:

1. Find a coat that belts or cinches at the waist.  This tip is simple & will allow you to show off your shape no matter how puffy the jacket.

2. Wear slim pants.  Slim pants/leggings paired with a puffy jacket & heavy boots will help balance out your proportions.  

3. Add bright accessories to a dark colored coat. Make your coat fade into the background by adding fun accessories.  Everyone will be too busy staring at your cute hat & gloves to notice how bundled up you are!

Have you had any snow in your area?  How do you style your puffy jacket?
