Optimize your wardrobe

By optimizing your wardrobe, you can pack less and get more out of what’s in your suitcase. You can start little by purchasing neutral clothes that are easy to match with your statement pieces, as well as investing in garments that perform double duty. Quinones recommends Uniqlo’s Heattech line for a technologically-advanced warmth but without the bulk. The collection includes a range of tops, tights, leggings, shorts, and socks all made of lightweight material that is easy to move into and is great for layering under jeans or sweats.

Wander light

Quinones shared that like many other enthusiastic travelers out there, she also once fell in the trap of packing too much. That was until it came to her that packing light doesn’t mean sacrificing style or comfort, but it does require rethinking such travel basics. UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down collection offers a variety of outerwear. Its lightness, warmth, and trendy voluminous silhouettes make it a functional yet chic essential for the season.

Invest in pieces that have insulation properties

The key to comfort in cold-weather destinations is proper insulation. Acting as a mid-layer, its job is to keep you warm and can fit more loosely than your base layer. Because you are wearing a moisture-wicking first layer, the insulating layer will receive a lot of the transferred dampness. Uniqlo’s Fleece lineup wraps its wearers in a soft and warm fleece body. It’s the perfect cold-weather clothing and offers versatile and sophisticated designs and silhouettes that can be fashion items even in the city.

Here are some of the highlight pieces from the collection:

Men’s Fleece Long Sleeve Full Zip Jacket (P1,290) Updated to a finer-textured fleece and has an added a zipper pull to make it easier to open and close when wearing gloves Available in a range of seasonal and fashionable colors and designs.

Women’s Fluffy Yarn Fleece Full-Zip Jacket (P1,290) Made in fluffy fleece material with a long pile for comfort and warmth. It features widened sleeves and hem tape for a more relaxed feel. These are available in soft colors in a gradient tone to match the fuzzy texture.

For the stylish bunch, Uniqlo also introduced its Coat and Flannel lineup.
