When it comes to affordable outerwear options Uniqlo always has my back. So, naturally, when temperatures took a turn for the chilly, I made my way over to the brand's flagship store in SoHo to scope out this season's options.
Buying affordable outerwear can be tricky, especially when you live somewhere it actually gets cold. Really cold. You want something that's cute and will work for a variety of occasions (including fancy parties and work meetings) and one that will actually, you know, keep you warm. And you want it all at a reasonable price. It's a tall order to fill--but this coat from Uniqlo manages to do it all.
I bought this wool-blend coat back at the beginning of fall and have wound up wearing it more days than not. It looks good with jeans and booties but also works with a fancy party dress and tights. Though wearing a scarf is kind of essential (it doesn't button-up very high), that's okay by me because 99% of times my winter outfits include some kind of scarf anyway.
Though I have it in the dark grey color, the camel and black versions are also highly appealing. The best part is that it's now on sale for under $80!
Go get it here.
