Though it might seem like a waste to buy a coat as winter’s wrapping up, you'll still get at least a month of wear before putting it away for next season. And buying now will score you a great deal. This time of year, brands you can normally only get for full price are on sale. A great deal on a puffer coat (like this one from S13) is your best bet, as styles don’t change that much from year to year.
