Happy Thanksgiving, friends! It’s officially the holiday season and we are absolutely excited about it. Last year, we were lucky to spend the winter in Alaska‘s freezing tundra but this year, we are staying warm in Hawaii. Although we are not traveling during the winter months this time around, we are here to share all about a winter travel wardrobe.
When it comes to traveling, we embrace a minimalistic, yet functional, wardrobe. This allows us to pack less and fit everything into a carry-on suitcase – saving time and money! Whether you are traveling somewhere tropical or in the snow for the winter, UNIQLO offers the best selections for different types of climate! They have clothes for women, men, kids, and babies which ranges from tops, bottoms, dresses, jumpsuits, activewear, innerwear, loungewear, accessories, shoes, and more! We have put together a minimal travel wardrobe for the winter featuring their HEATTECH collection.
HEATTECH generates heat from the body. It is made from bio-warming material, providing warmth without bulk. It uses technology to convert body moisture into heat, keeping you comfortable all winter long. In addition to keeping you warm, it’s equipped with moisturizing Argan oil and moisture-wicking fibers release excess moisture to keep you fresh all day. There are 3 types of HEATTECH such as HEATTECH standard, HEATTECH Extra Warm, and HEATTECH Ultra Warm.
HEATTECH standard is ideal for everyday wear in the winter. Since we are staying home in Hawaii this winter, the standard collection is perfect.
HEATTECH Extra Warm is ideal for colder days. This is 1.5 times warmer than the standard HEATTECH.
HEATTECH Ultra Warm is ideal for extreme cold weather. This is 2.25 times warmer than the standard HEATTECH. This is the only HEATTECH that is not available for kids and baby clothing.
Another collection that we absolutely swear by is the AIRISM collection! We traveled throughout Asia in the summer wearing UNIQLO AIRISM collection and have been using it since. While we use the AIRISM as a daily wardrobe in Hawaii, it is perfect to wear as a base layer for the winter. AIRISM is a smart breathable base layer that releases heat and moisture and adapts to any weather condition. It is quick-drying, stays cool to the touch, anti-microbial, self-deodorizing, and absolutely stretchy. If you happen to see a UNIQLO, look for the AIRISM collection and feel it – the material is extremely soft!
