Winter in the city is better embraced than fought. As fall starts to fade away and temperatures dip closer to the 30 degree range, it's time to break out those really warm layers. At the top of the list is the puffer coat: unbeatable for keeping toasty but not historically the most flattering.

Luckily, this ski slope staple has been re-imagined by the likes of Helmut Lang, SAM., Theory and more. Check out the gallery above for twelve updated options that we promise won't make you look like the marshmallow in your hot cocoa.—Nicola Fumo
