A Lightweight Puffer for Winter Layering

For winter weather that’s hot one minute (boiling in the sun under two sweaters) and freezing the next, you’ll need pieces that are both warm and easy to layer. This J.Crew puffer is just the thing: Throw it on over a sweater, or wear it under an overcoat on a cold day. The thin, down-filled material will keep you cozy, and it’ll look great either over a winter dress or paired with slouchy denim on a weekend afternoon.
