Light as AIRism

uniqlo airism

Summer weather is known for days of clear skies and sunshine. It’s also known for being incredibly hot and humid. Although it’s not – legally – possible to be naked outside in an urban environment, it is possible to make the most of what we wear when it’s sweltering.

The Uniqlo team has created AIRism: a line of basics, made from a breathable fabric that is designed to wick away moisture while keeping skin feeling dry and comfortable all day long. Benefits include a smooth texture (individual fibers are infinitely smaller than the thickness of a human hair), superior stretch, odor eliminating with odor control, and the ability to remain cool to the touch.

The silky tanks, t-shirts, leggings and pants, camisoles and bras, boxer briefs, as well as items for children are offered in a soft, neutral palette (with the occasional print) and can be worn alone or layered under other pieces (perfect for those who don’t care for perspiration marks).

Think they’re not one of the most versatile pieces in one’s wardrobe? Prove me wrong and throw on a Uniqlo AIRism t-shirt when it’s hot outside and stay – and look – cool.
