A Guide To All Of Uniqlo’s Cult-Favorite Fall Fabrics

To put it plainly, we love Uniqlo over in these parts. Let us count the ways: the Japanese clothing brand consistently releases well-made and versatile pieces offered at affordable prices. Uniqlo also collabs with the coolest, most unexpected designers for fresh takes on everyday basics. And, perhaps most importantly, everything Uniqlo comes out with is top-notch quality — and it’s safe to say that’s because of the retailer’s in-house specialty fabrics, all smartly trademarked with names like Heattech, AIRism, and 3D Knit. Chef’s kiss — it’s absolutely genius.

In preparation for the colder months ahead, we’ve broken down Uniqlo’s best-selling and most-loved fall fabrics, along with the signature layering pieces we’re eyeing for dropping temperatures. From textured knitted pullovers to barely-there insulating intimates, get to know why these Uniqlo cult faves are crucial — not just as seasonal must-haves but as timeless capsule staples you’ll return to year after year.

Uniqlo Heatteach

Ask the best fall dressers what their secret to layering without the bulk is and it’s likely they’ll dish on Uniqlo’s Heattech. These super-soft, barely-there pieces slip on like a second skin to instantly create warmth. And if sweat or friction is an issue you’re worried about, Uniqlo is already ahead of you — these Heattech base layers are moisture-wicking, have odor control, and are anti-static.

Uniqlo AIRism

Similar to Heattech, Uniqlo’s AIRism collection features super lightweight base layers and intimates that contour the body, all while retaining its quick-drying technology. If you’re want to avoid underwear or bra lines in certain outfits, make sure you’re wearing AIRism underneath.

Uniqlo Ultra Light Down

The thing about most outerwear is that they’re heavy, they’re bulky, and they’re high-maintenance. Not so with Uniqlo’s super warm, water-repellent Ultra Light Down collection. These fluffy outers feel like you’re barely wearing a winter jacket — they’re actually that feather-light, making it easy to crush them down into a pocket-sized pouch (which is included for most of these pieces).

Uniqlo Extra Fine Merino Wool

For a more luxe dressing experience, you can’t go wrong with Uniqlo’s Extra Fine Merino Wool pieces. With all the warming properties of wool but without any of the roughness or thickness, these smooth-finish merino sweaters and dresses are as comfortable to wear as they are versatile.

Uniqlo 3D Knit

Sometimes, you just want to wear a knit that is unabashedly textured and chunky. Luckily, Uniqlo’s line of all-cotton 3D Knits can create the voluminous silhouettes you crave.

Uniqlo Ultra Stretch

If it’s not apparent to you by this point, Uniqlo clothes are wildly comfortable. Case in point: these velvet-like loungewear pants are swingy, fuzzy-soft, and can stretch like woah.

Uniqlo Fleece

Fleece is essential for cold weather, and no brand does relaxed fluff like Uniqlo. Plushy and cuddly, these tops and jackets are also wrinkle-resistant and quick-dry (in case you’re also wearing them for exercise).

Uniqlo Flannel

You can’t talk about classic fall fabrics without mentioning flannel. What we especially love about these plaid pieces is that they’re slightly boxy, making them easy to wear on their own or with other layers (perhaps over a Uniqlo Heattech piece?) for maximum warmth.

Uniqlo Cashmere

We’re closing out this Uniqlo fabrics guide with 100% cashmere. Luxe, decadent, and still very affordable at under $100 — or, under $50 if you grab them on sale! If you’re in the market for a few cashmere staples, Uniqlo is the place to find a whole slew of sweater styles — crew necks, V necks, turtlenecks — in an array of seasonal and classic colors.
