Winter in New York (or New England, or Chicago, or lots of places!) means business. It gets cold. Really cold. For this reason, a great winter coat is imperative. I tend to live in a puffer coat December through February (and sometimes March!) While it isn’t all that hard to find a warm puffer coat, it can be hard to find a stylish one.
So many of the parkas I’ve tried on add a lot of bulk and tend to make me look like a walking marshmallow. A warm marshmallow, but still.. a marshmallow. That fact alone is what drew me to Woolrich’s Bow Bridge Down Coat. It’s sleeker than any other parka I’ve tried, but still so, so warm! The nylon/cotton Ramar cloth shell is coated with Teflon™ to repel water, wind and stains and it definitely gets bonus points for the fleece lined pockets. I would say to size up if you’re between sizes. I’m typically a small or medium in coats and took a medium in this one and it’s perfect!
Bloomingdale’s stocks a ton of gorgeous Woolrich parkas as well as a large assortment of cold weather outerwear pieces. This one is my favorite but I also really loved the look of this grey one too. Lucky for us it’s still a little too warm to pull this out (most days at least) but I always get my winter coat early on in Fall as the best ones always sell out!
Love that quilted down lining. So warm, without weighing you down. I joke that for New Yorkers, our winter coats are our cars. We’re constantly walking around and taking public transit. It’s important that they be dependable – and stylish to get us where we need to be!
