Ever wondered how street style stars brave bare legs in the middle of winter? The secret weapon for those in the know is Uniqlo’s ultra-light range of gilets and jackets, adding an insulated layer to every look. Impossibly thin and compact, the styles scrunch up into carry bags (ideal for travelling) and slot effortlessly under even the most fitted of jackets and coats, transforming everything from bikers to trenches into winter-appropriate styles.
We’ve even spotted some fashion girls making a statement out of the pieces themselves – just add long sleeved tees and boyfriends for a cosy off-duty look. Alternatively, team with a thigh-grazing mini and boxy fit overcoat for practical cold weather style.
