Most of the apparel and accessories listed below are unisex, making your search for your next staple super easy. From UNIQLO’s iconic AIRism line to its viral pleated pants – here are six must-have items from UNIQLO you NEED to have in your closet.
Anything From The AIRism Line
You can’t go to a UNIQLO store without copping one or two… or three AIRism pieces. Whether it’s soft undergarments or a simple plain T-shirt – the AIRism line is heaven-sent, especially for us sweating Malaysians. Because the weather here is relentlessly hot, the technology underlying AIRism material offers a cooling effect that makes living under the sun more practical. The quality of the pieces is unparalleled, which is why AIRism goods are must-haves to update your wardrobe.
Uniqlo U Crew-Neck Short-Sleeve T-shirt
Who says you can have too many basic T-shirts? UNIQLO certainly disagrees. The Uniqlo U Crew-Neck Short-Sleeve T-shirt is an excellent basis for layering and should be in your closet. Not only do they come in a variety of colours, but the material is really superb. Because of the exquisite material, layering over this shirt with outerwear doesn’t feel stuffy at all. Regardless of the weather, the cotton fabric makes the shirt exceptionally pleasant to wear.
Waffle Crew Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt
If you prefer sweaters, the Waffle Crew Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt is an absolute must-have in your wardrobe arsenal. The waffle fabric’s wonderful texture makes the sweater feel absolutely weightless. Wearing it shouldn’t be a hassle at all, especially under the Malaysian sun. Given that this sweater line is simple and plain, styling a sweater should be a breeze given how versatile it is. Dress it up or down depending on the occasion, and your personal style, and explore with UNIQLO’s classic waffle sweater.
