orla kiely fashion thermal heattech for uniqlo

I don’t know whether or not I’m actually allowed to call Uniqlo’s Heattech range “thermals” – they work in a different way to traditional thermal undies. But you know what I mean – underwear that keeps you toasty, toasty warm. The Heattech fabric works differently to “thermals” and allows it to be really thin and lightweight, which makes the vests and long-sleeved tees really very handy.

The latest styles to arrive into the Heattech range are by Orla Kiely – many of you probably guessed the designer as soon as you saw my top in the photograph. Mr AMR thinks that I look like a moving sheet of wallpaper but I quite like having a perky design peeping out from beneath my jumper. And also, I couldn’t really care less if I do look like the bedroom wall from a seventies house: I’m warm and I’m cheery. So there! Put that in your pipe!

There are quite a few different O.Kiely designs and I think that they liven up the underwear drawer no end. Of course it’s always handy to have a black version or a plain white, but at least you can find the patterned ones easily when you’re bleary-eyed and irritable in the morning. I’m hoping that they might do Liberty print ones next….

Heattech long-sleeved O.Kiely tees are £12.90 from Uniqlo.com – shorter sleeved tee-shirts and vests are £9.90

    This looks great! Cute, cozy, and kind of awesome that the print resembles ’70s wallpaper :) I think your makeup looks lovely too- so fresh and glowy!

    Hi Ruth – please could you do a makeup tutorial for the look, it’s amazing!

  3. Wow you look so pretty here. I have the black ones of these. I love your makeup look – could you tell me what your lip colour is? x

    I have a few of them and I love the way they keep me warm when I’m out but don’t make me sweaty when I’m on the train or somewhere hot. Very handy!!

    I bought a heat tech slong sleeve top when I was in Hong Kong and MAN do you pay so much more over here! I agree that it’s so light weight and actually keeps you pretty warm, I regret not buying a couple more! But I think it’s a brilliant idea to collaborate with Orla Kiely to have different prints to liven up your winter wardrobe. Btw, your make up in the photo is stunning!! Your skin is so beautiful, you make me want to buy Alpha-H or that Olay Night elixir, which was featured in your exclusive news letter, to exfoliate my face and give me glowing skin! Beautiful, Ruth!
