Uniqlo has always been a brand that creates “clothing designed to bring comfort to everyday life.” I’d know as I’ve gleefully stocked my own closet with their basics. Aside from carrying good-looking garb, Uniqlo also offers awesome clothing like Heat Tech, which has saved this cold girl one too many times.

This Spring Summer 2019 release doesn’t stray from those qualities. A celebration of what the Japanese brand has dubbed as #LifeWear, Uniqlo’s newest collection features clothes that are designed for daily life’s abuses and some tech to add on to these delightful pieces. Here are just some highlights from the collection:

Work closet staples that are comfy 

The EZY ankle pants look perfectly serious but are designed to stretch and have a more comfy fit. Perfect for all-day meetings where you need to impress but still want to be comfortable.

Uniqlo also offers a number of crew neck tees and non-iron button up shirts to complete the look.

Classy collaborations for the fashion-forward

British brand JW Anderson and Uniqlo have collaborated to create “basics with a subtle twist,” for those wanting to add more individuality to their wardrobe.

There’s also a themed Saint-Tropez collection with Ines De La Fressange that will transport you to the carefree coastal town. The best part? There are kiddie sizes so you can coordinate with your little ones!

Wireless bras that adjust to your individual shape for when you need support

Featuring a stretch cup that molds to your personal measurements, this bra will fit you just perfectly with all the support you need. No more nasty wires that can dig into skin!

Elastic jeans that fit perfectly for casual days

Take it from Roger Federer, these jeans are just 👌🏽

These EZY Jeans are updated every season to make sure that fabric, design, and fit are top notch. It features an elastic waistband for easy wear every time.

More fun tee designs for when you’re feeling expressive

Even more additions to the UT line and I’m pretty excited! My favorite? This gem I spotted at the event.

Yes, folks! It’s the same Polaroid camera (sort of) I’ve written about before and I am geeking out.

There are also more lovable characters from famous franchises…

Aren’t they all so cute?

High-performance athleisure wear for the sporty chic

Uniqlo’s DRY-EX line are lightweight pieces that wick away moisture — perfect for workouts or lounging on a hot summer day.

How to wear green: Autumn’s most underrated color

Some tips on how you can subtly incorporate green to your looks this season

Published

on

Despite everything I see on fashion editorials and on my feed, it’s always this time of the year when I become obsessed with green.  When I think of fall, colors of rustic countryside and foliage come to mind. I imagine deep but vibrant hues — earth tones like rust, mustard, a deep red, and the entire brown spectrum.

This is why there’s no more perfect time to add green pieces to your looks than during autumn to winter — it’s not anyone’s go-to. Here are some tips on how you can subtly incorporate green to your looks this season:

Play it safe with olive

If emerald green is too much for you to pull off, start with moss, olive, or army green first. It’s almost like wearing a neutral but it still adds a hint of color to your outfit. A parka in this color is an easy choice that will go well with a lot of casual outfits. For when you want to look a little bit more dressed up, try wearing a mini bag in this shade.

The girl in the green scarf

Adding a splash of color to a neutral outfit with accessories is the easiest trick to pull off on anyone’s styling book. Make a green accessory the focal point of an otherwise ordinary everyday look. If you have a signature styling item, get it in an emerald green color. I’ve been obsessing over silky scarves lately. I wear them with my ponytail, as a headband, or on my purse.

New phone, new color

If you’re due for a smartphone upgrade, get a new color option instead of black. A lot of smartphones this year come in a new shade of green, including the new iPhone 11 Pro. Like a statement necklace, it can be a great focal point for your outfit. When there’s already too much going on with your look and you’re not confident enough to pull off color blocking, it’s best to cover it up with a neutral case that matches your purse and shoes.

Go green, all-green

Here’s yet another tonal dressing suggestion. While I love an all-nude look to stand out in a sea of tans and blacks this season, all-green is my next go-to — and it’s probably my favorite. It’s what started my love affair with tonal dressing to begin with. An all-green outfit is not as feminine as nude, but it’s just sophisticated. It’s not as much of a statement as wearing red from head to toe, but it will stand out just as much in a sea of blacks and tans.

Green was never something I would wear growing up; my teenager self never saw it to be flattering or versatile. Age changed that. It’s still a tricky color to wear — especially the bolder, more vibrant shades — but when styled right, it can be the most polished look you’ve pulled off in a long time.

When it comes to smartphones, the Huawei Nova 5T is a phone she can rely on. With its super fast fingerprint unlock and 8GB of memory, she won’t need to do any more waiting than she already does in her day to day.

Having 128GB of storage, she can take as many photos and videos as she wants. And the flagship Kirin 980 processor assures her that she can do anything she ought to do and multitask like the career woman that she is. No compromises here.

Who says a girl needs an Instagram boyfriend? The 32MP selfie camera on the Huawei Nova 5T lets her take wide-angle and beautiful selfies and outfit shots all on her own, without having to rely on anyone else. And those cameras at the back give her professional-like photos, too. No more boring photos.

The modern woman hustles and stays connected and the Nova 5T can stay on with her for for as long as she needs it to be. When it runs out of juice, it gets up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
