In these tweener weeks that constitute the time between summer and fall, outerwear presents a little bit of a problem. You want something that will keep you warm, but obviously you want to keep your parka on the shelf. Luckily, a lightweight trench coat is ideal for this time of the year. It keeps you safe from the elements, but won’t have you looking out of place. Uniqlo is making a surprisingly solid option — we find ourselves saying that quite a bit about the Japanese mega-brand. It has clean lines with no ornamentation but for wrist straps and epaulets, making it perfect for any outfit. You can just pop it on as you walk out the door without having to worry, “Wait, does this go with my look?” It is cut short which we like, but the best part is that it sells for a mere $100. So at this point, there really isn’t any reason for you not to buy it. You can get yours at Uniqlo New York, or call them and they’ll send one to you.
