Layer Up and Cheer On, c/o UNIQLO
It’s officially the season of “Fly, Eagles Fly,” and Philadelphians couldn’t be happier. From tailgating alongside spicy wings and rolls piled high with sausage and peppers to chanting “E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES” during game time, the end of summer means one thing to this sport-adoring city…football! Happy to forego lazy days at the beach to blaringly loud, tense afternoons in cool to frigid temps at Lincoln Financial Field, this crowd pines to throw on layer after layer, Sunday after Sunday.
Early fall days at the field call for tiers of lightweight pieces that are easily mixed and matched with one another. With a focus on streamlined basics made to go under and over each other, let UNIQLO make your game day that much warmer – and stylish.
Beginning with a great pair of denim – Pure Blue Japan Relaxed Skinny Fit Tapered Jeans or Slim Boyfriend Fit Ankle Length Jeans, our favorites for lazy Sundays – and then rounding out with a few essentials on top, it’s not only simple to build a wardrobe fitting for a football fanatic, it’s fun.
The most important component to your game-day attire is none other than a coat. Be it warm enough for the Arctic (in December this is a must), to cozy enough through fall’s unpredictable temps, UNIQLO’s vast selection of outerwear runs the gamut.
October and November can be cool to cold, sunny to cloudy, and everything in between. Keep your core toasty in layers of ultra-soft fleece, a stylish Ultra Light Down Plaid Vest, and if you’re unsure of how chilled to the bone you will get, an Ultra Light Down Parka – travel pouch included – is as convenient as they come. However, come the onset of winter, your limbs will be vying for a serious coat boasting serious warmth. We wouldn’t want to be without the balmy protection of either the travel-friendly Ultra Light Down Long Coat or our on-trend Military Coat complete with faux fur hood and padding for extra insulation.
Okay, okay, so we know much of this is about the coat, however don’t forego the thought into what’s underneath. Beginning with the silky smooth feel of Supima cotton next to your skin – try the Supima Cotton V Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt or the Supima Cotton Long Sleeve Turtle Neck T – to adding the seasonal must of a Flannel Check Long Sleeve Shirt or an ingenious dose of a Heattech Long Sleeve T-Shirt, layering never looked so good. And with an endless bounty of tees, sweatshirts – the Faux Shearing Zip Hoodie and Women I am Other Hoodie can’t be beat – and sweaters, game time will be a win-win.
As the two-minute warning approaches, a few accessories are needed to make it to the finish, beginning with an SPRZ NY Andy Warhol Blanket, the perfect remedy for ice-cold stadium seats. And finally, don’t even think about stepping onto the parking lot pavement sans a pair of Heattech Leggings under your jeans (long underwear at its finest), and/or Heattech Knee High Socks inside your boots; you won’t want to be without them, and we don’t recommend it.
