NYC is cold. So warm coats are key. Down coats, in particular.
Every winter, I am on the lookout for a toasty, hip, and affordable coat. This year, I headed to the Uniqlo J+ coat section. Jil Sander has been doing a collaboration collection with Uniqlo for the past two years, and this Fall/Winter season is her last joint effort with them. (Read about their parting ways here ). I love Jil Sander — her modern and sharp lines, clean aesthetic and general relaxed vibe all resonate with me. So her collaboration with Uniqlo is a win-win situation. Jil Sander fashion at Uniqlo prices!
For under 400 dollars, I bought 2 J+ coats — both warm, cozy, stylish (as stylish as a sleeping bag coat can be) and unique. Why two? (why not?) One is short, and one is long. And for those of you who deal with cold winters– there is a difference — you wear the short coat on cold days, and the long coat on unbearable, frigid, oh-holy-sh*t-its-cold days.
The first one. Drum roll.
$169.90 is a steal for a coat you wear every other day in the wintertime!
And the second one….
So if you live in a freezing place, such as I do, RUN to Uniqlo and buy these coats while they last. I am sure you will not regret it for a minute! (Unfortunately, you cannot buy Uniqlo online — only in stores, but you can check out the various styles on their website  for inspiration).
Until Friday, have a great rest of the week!
