J.Crew Wintress Puffer Coat Review

I think I have just about wool-coated myself to death these past few years and it's time to update the seriously-cold-coat department in my closet!  I've resisted the J.Crew puffers these past few years, but I really liked the idea of the belt to give a little shape to such a puffy coat... so I bit on the 25% off discount....

This is the Shadow color in an XS.
Bonus: also comes in Petite and Tall

I typically wear a 2 in Crew coats, and I feel this runs about TTS with most J.Crew things.  I know a down coat isn't very exciting for most people, but for some reason I'm really LOVING this coat!  I LOVE the tie belt, I LOVE the length (just right for running errands, etc...but still covers the bum!) I LOVE the hood, the color, the feel, the thumb holes.... pretty much everything!

Maybe it will go on sale eventually, but I feel good about getting the 25% off since I think I'll be wearing this a TON this year!

Bottom Line: Need a really warm coat that still has a bit of style!  Check this one out!


  1. Super cute on you! The length and cut are really flattering for a puffer. Thanks for the review!

  2. It's a cute coat! I wish they had it last year when I was looking desperately for the right one.

  3. Looks great and I think 25% off is a good deal.

    Would you say the color is navy? It looked almost steel gray on their website. Also are the buttons brass colored or silver? Thanks so much!

  4. It's really good that it comes in P and T. You have to have the right size in this type of coat. I think 25% is good. Ppl are waiting for a coat promo and I don't know what that would look like. 30%? It's hard to get 30% off + sale. My size/color is pretty much sold out and winter over by the time the latter happens.

  5. I enjoy your blog so much, I wish you'd post more! to encourage you, I've given you the Liebster Blog award. Check my blog for more information.

  6. I own the "Shadow" color, and in-person, it seems more like "Navy" even though on the site, it looks more like what you said--steel gray.
