If there's one place I go to find the perfect basics, it's Uniqlo. Known for both its quality and technical fabrics, the high-street giant has made itself a key go-to for fashion lovers as well as the general public. Its wide variety of high-quality knitwear, trousers and forever coats never disappoint, plus all items usually come in pretty much every colour thinkable, thus there's always something to love for everyone. Personally, I love to sneak into the men's department for the perfect white T-shirt, puffa coat or oversized sweatshirt.
However, many fashion editors and stylist will attest to the fact that Uniqlo is more than this. Over the past few years, the brand has focused on more fashion-forward collections including collaborations with J.W.Anderson, Jil Sander and, most recently, Alexander Wang (and they often sell out overnight). Additionally, its Uniqlo U line, designed in the Paris-based atelier by artistic director Christophe Lemaire, looks to reinvent wardrobe classics through using craftsmanship and new shapes, which gives us a wide variety of affordable timeless pieces to choose from.

We love the merino and cashmere knits from Uniqlo. They're the perfect basic for any winter wardrobe and bound to keep you warm and cosy. We love pairing these knits back with a slip skirt or styled with a pair of jeans.
Ask any fashion editor who attends the shows in February and they'll tell you the same thing: Uniqlo's Heattech pieces are a godsend. They're also quite chic for the winter months without having to layer. The new Alexander Wang–designed pieces are particularly good.
One of my favourite things to shop in Uniqlo is the men's department. Everything fits a bit more oversized, which makes it looks that much cooler. We love how Sabrina styled her sweatshirt with layered necklaces to add some pizazz.
