This time of year, Strategist editors and writers tend not to measure how cold it is by degrees, but rather by how many layers of Uniqlo Heattech they’ve got on. The Japanese brand’s (proprietary) inner layers are designed to retain body heat without adding bulk, but it turns out there’s an even warmer Heattech to be had. It’s called Ultra Heattech, and according to Uniqlo, it’s 2.25 times warmer than the regular stuff, meaning the days of layering Heattech over Heattech are over. And now is a good time to stock up, as these already affordable extra-warm layers are on sale. There are leggings and a turtleneck, but we’re partial to this crew neck T-shirt that would easily slip under any sweater or shirt. If you see a color or style you like, don’t dillydally: Sizes are already starting to sell out.
