Every winter presents the challenge of how to look stylish without freezing your butt off, and this year, it’s an even more pressing question. Now that most socializing is taking place outdoors, the coat has become the new going-out top, with hats, gloves, and scarves the new It accessories. They’re all anyone can see, so they’re the only part of your outfit that really matters. (At least to everyone else.) Enter the puffer scarf: a trendy way to stay warm and make a statement. They’re like — wait for it — a puffer coat … if it were a scarf. Amazing! And if you don’t want to splurge on a Norma Kamali sleeping-bag coat, it’s a much cheaper option. This puffer scarf by COS is big enough to be a blanket and can be worn inside on the couch. Below, some more options.
