All you need for winter at UNIQLO — That’s Not My Age


About 10 years ago, Mr TNMA and I went to the Arctic Circle at Christmas and were HEATTECH’ed up to the hilt. For super-cool thermals and simple, wardrobe basics, I’m a long-term UNIQLO fan. The cashmere jumpers are lovely – and the new 3D designs are crafted using Japanese knitting technology, to create a seamless garment. Nice one. Everyone knows about UNIQLO’s down outerwear which is great for more relaxed occasions but when I went in-store to pick out a few pieces for this collaboration, I was impressed by the smarter styles, too. The oversized, belted coat (below) is a great pull-on-and-go style (though not as warm as the down jackets, so you’d need to layer up) – and check out the super-smart, pleated HEATTECH trousers. Yes, really! Brilliant when you’re spending time outdoors in December and I’d definitely wear both these items with a cashmere jumper in a business context.



Add a cashmere beanie and gloves and you’re good to go.


Apart from HEATTECH socks and gloves, I hadn’t paid much attention to the accessories at UNIQLO, but the ribbed beanies and cashmere designs are top-notch. The cashmere gloves‘ long, ribbed cuff is folded over but can be opened out to exclude the draught, or if you’re wearing a coat with shorter sleeves. And a special mention for the handy shoulder bag – I’m wearing it across my body but you can just put it on your shoulder. When I met one of my friends carrying it, she told me that she and her husband and their 24-year-old daughter all own one. This could possibly be the perfect, multi-generational Christmas gift…
