The cool breeze signifies that the happiest time of the year really is upon us. That cold and crisp air we experience everyday as we go to school or work, not to mention the planned holiday trips, signals that it’s the perfect time to take out the cold weather outfits everyone has in the deep crevices of their wardrobes.
But if you feel like you’re a little outdated on your winter fashion wear, fear not because everyone’s go-to store for all things fashion, including clothes for the cold, has provided not just stylish but also functional and practical clothing pieces for everyone.
For upholding its LifeWear brand, Uniqlo has come out with different sets of cold weather garments for those planning on going to cold weather destinations as well as for people who will be staying in the country.
Fashion formulas from the pro
Uniqlo also brought in former fashion editor and stylist to the stars Pam Quiñones to give the crowd tips and tricks when packing for a trip to a cold place while keeping things fashionable. She shared her top three favorite cold weather destinations and fashion formulas for people who will be visiting those destinations or other destinations with similar weather conditions.
First on her list is Iceland which is famous for its icebergs and the northern lights. There, she recalled how she overpacked and even bought clothes like a fur jacket but was unable to use it because it wasn’t enough to protect her from the cold.
Her fashion formula for negative to single-digit degree weather conditions is: Heattech Ultra Warm Turtleneck + Leggings Pants + Fleece Turtleneck Long Sleeves + Heattech Socks + Hybrid Down Parka.
Next is Japan where it was spring during her visit. The country famous for how almost everything is technology-driven but still keeps its culture and scenic places intact is also where most Filipinos are starting to go to.
For places where it isn’t as freezing as the previously mentioned temperatures of 15 to 23-degrees, her fashion formula is: Heattech Scoop Neck Shirt + Corduroy Flare Pants + Double Faced Hooded Coat.
Georgia, USA, is her third favorite cold weather destination because it is her husband’s birthplace. Savannah specifically is a culture-and-arts-centric place. She shared that the place is slightly colder than Japan.
Her fashion formula for two- to 13-degree temperature places is: Heattech Extra Warm Turtleneck Shirt + Heattech Extra Warm Leggings + Double Faced Hooded Coat + Ultra Light Down Cocoon Jacket.
