Heattech by Uniqlo–Thermals to Show Off
Last year I discovered Uniqlo Heattech, Uniqlo’s unique range of thermals which a) actually do keep you warm and b) in many cases are good enough to show off.
This year the range has just got better, and as someone who lives in the frozen wilds of Buckinghamshire (well certainly frozen some of the time) I went for a quick update yesterday to discover that the collection, from range to colours, has improved a great deal.
If you don’t like the cold I suggest you go through your collection of thermals and sling out anything that ‘just does’. Then rush to Uniqlo and order your winter warmers fast.
You’ll find excellent neutrals such as beige, charcoal and black alongside deep plum, turquoise and olive green for many items, so the choice is entirely yours.
This collection is well worth investing in – it’s exceptionally reasonably priced (and there are frequent special offers), it washes like a dream and you can wear it over and over again. Oh yes, and it actually keeps you warm.
Favourite items are the slinky jersey stand neck (and if you like the neck to fit quite snugly you might want to go a size down.
Their long and short sleeved scoop neck t-shirts, again better on the smaller size
Leggings to wear under your jeans and anything else (there are nothing like layers when it gets cold). You’ll also find cable tights, stirrup leggings and extra length ribbed leggings to keep your legs and feet warm.
Plus long knee socks in snow prints, to wear over a thin sock layer.
Don’t hang about with this collection – it seriously sells out – you’ll find some sizes missing already at Uniqlo Online, and although they replenish their stock it’s frustrating to find that what you want isn’t there at the moment you’re ready to buy.
