Singaporean men have always received slander for the way they dress, even after the evolution from National Service admin tees to oversized crew-necks from UNIQLO. It’s comfortable, it’s easy to style but you can always spice your outfits up by layering.

Layering refers to wearing several pieces of clothing on top of one another, which sounds crazy in Singapore’s climate. But, here’s how you can pull it off with essential pieces from UNIQLO’s latest Spring/Summer 2022 Collection.

Available in mustard, dark grey and natural, UNIQLO’s Rib Blouson ($99.9) is designed with a boxy silhouette to accentuates one’s shoulders. Its relaxed fit renders it perfect for a casual occasion, paired with t-shirt and jeans or chinos.

For more formal occasions, layer their French Rib Cardigan ($59.9) over a contrasting shirt to pull off an academia look.

The cardigan’s loose-fitting cut also renders it appropriate for casual wear.

The flaps in the front and back are more than just designs. They are vents for fresh air to circulate to keep you cool in the day. It’s also made of 100% ultra-lightweight compact cotton, which is water-resistant.

Perfect for those with an active lifestyle, the Oversized Hooded Blouson ($129.9) is also available in black.

“The concept of Uniqlo U is still the same. It’s about creating functional, universal, essential pieces that free movement, are designed to last and bring solutions to everyday life.”

Christophe Lemaire, Artistic Director of UNIQLO

Lemaire honed his craft at various high-end brands such as Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent and Thierry Mugler. He was the Artistic Director at Hermès before transiting to UNIQLO in 2015.  

“If you look carefully at the volume of the blouson or the kimono sleeve t-shirt and t-shirt dress—those are good examples of how essential pieces can have character.”

But for those who choose to stick to their basic t-shirt and jeans, the Uniqlo U AIRism Cotton Crew Neck Oversized T-Shirt will also see the addition of 4 new colours such as purple, pink, green, and brown!
