What’s the best way to ward off a chill this winter? The puffer coat, of course. While its utilitarian design might seem uninspiring, fashion designers would disagree. An exaggerated collar highlights the look’s chic and cozy appeal at Balenciaga, while clever quilting makes its mark at Chanel. At Adam Selman, however, the coat stays true to its roots—with the addition of a playful polka dot lining. Further, modern materials up the style ante with high-shine designs from Sacai (in vibrant violet) and Stella McCartney (in basic black).

To mimic the look on tips, take a cue from guest artist Allie Baker and create 3-D designs that mix sculpting, texture and a touch of bling.
