Day 4: Uniqlo's winter coats on offer
Another day, another bargain. This time, £20 off this Uniqlo coat. Usually £79.99, it's currently £59.99. All wool coats at Uniqlo are on offer right now and, for a limited period, there's even free delivery online, too.
With its rich caramel tone, softest wool, funnel neck, minimalist tailoring and androgynous design, it ticks all the boxes for this season's most desirable: the camel coat. Plus, it's a great high-street interpretation of the ones seen at Chloé and Stella McCartney. I particularly love the front breast pockets – a manly touch that's quirky and cool.
The only problem is, I like the black version (below), too. (It also comes in dark grey.)
While camel looks effortlessly chic and turns a simple coat into a statement piece, I rather like the understated presence of the black coat. It's more suited to all occasions and all manner of wardrobe; I think I'd feel the pressure to look smart at all times with the camel coat. Plus, with the black version, if I get bored I need only replace the buttons for brass ones and I'll be working the military trend.
Which one would you go for? Let me know as, even with £20 off, I can't justify keeping both!
