Can thermals be sexy? Uniqlo has slinky layers to beat the chill

Uniqlo HeattechUniqlo Heattech is my go to place when the chill sets in and when I want thermal layers thaUmiqlo Heattech long sleeved roll neck top - colourst don’t just do the job but look good too.  They’re fine, very stretchy and come in lots of different shapes, from camisoles to scoop neck and roll neck tops, short sleeved t-shirts, long sleeved lace back crew neck tops, striped tops and plain fleece tops.  They’re also very well priced.

So successful has this brand been at keeping us warm Heattech has now evolved into sweaters, sweater dresses, jeans, leggings and socks, and you can be sure they’ll all do the job you’re buying them for. 

There’s a wide choice of colours but some sell out very fast so don’t leave it too late to order the new season’s colours.

M&S Collection HeatGen Thermal roll neck topEach year I look for a brand to produce an alternative to Uniqlo Heattech and the only one to so far is M & S with their Heatgen range which has expanded radically this season. 

The pictures are definitely better, the prices slightly higher, and they are both excellent at keeping you warm.  M&S has also increased the colour range this year so it’s well worth giving these a try. 

The collection includes roll neck tops, sparkle effect tops, scoop neck tops in 11 colours, leggings, bodies, lace edged vests and decorative tops.  And it’s growing every season.

So there’s really no excuse not to stay warm this winter – but repeating myself, don’t wait until the last minute – these are no longer such a well kept secret and the best styles and colours are gone in a flash.
