The trick to pain-free fall styling is knowing where to find those elusive versatile staples that feel quietly modern and lend themselves to effortless layering. When it comes to finding reliable and buildable basics, I always turn to Uniqlo, especially when it has an exciting new collaboration. This fall/winter collection is Hana Tajima's seventh with Uniqlo, and if you're expecting more culturally inclusive, playful-yet-modest style from the British-Japanese designer, you'd be absolutely right on the money.
This line has everything you'd expect from a Uniqlo collab: affordable staples (my picks below range from $15 up to $70 for a truly great coat) that are simple enough to wear for seasons to come but still feel very of the moment with clean lines, airy silhouettes, and textured light fabrics. Looking for mock-neck tees to layer under button-downs or a dress that looks just as good with bare legs and slides as it does with tights and boots? Uniqlo and Hana Tajima's new collection has you covered.
