Ahh, the curse of the puffer jacket: the sporty topper can brave any blizzard, but not any sartorial situation. Weekend errands? Sure. Après ski? Of course. But an occasion more fancy than sporty? Not so much.
And that's why we're so thrilled by this Nau down jacket, which is both voluminous and waist defining. The surprising shape renders it sort of artful, like something we'd see on the Comme de Garçons runway instead of Mariah Carey at Sundance. With skinny pants and some ultrapretty, bad-weather boots, it just might make sleeping-bag dressing office friendly. (Or at the very least, "drinks at a snooty new bar" friendly.)
As an added bonus, the jacket rolls up into a ball the size of grapefruit, so it can be stashed in your satchel for added warmth on the go. Which, really, is a Winter provision worth its weight in gold. So, shall we add one more to our list of investment-worthy coats?
