I’ve shopped at Uniqlo for basics for as long as I can remember and have always loved finding high quality basics for a reasonable price. As someone forever browsing Pinterest for inspiration, I have a tendency to pin high end beauties and dupe them at Uniqlo, COS, Everlane etc.
The JW Anderson Collaboration, like Uniqlo U and Uniqlo IDLF, is perfect for finding everyday basics with a bit of twist. While I feel like the reception for this collection isn’t as hyped as the aforementioned collaborations, I’ve been very happy with my selections. Sizing wise, everything felt true to size. My ideal size would be the XS, however many of these items were picked up one size up in S as the XS sold out.
5 Outfits with Uniqlo’s JW Anderson Collection
Pairing the pale yellow blouse with the wrap blue skirt was potentially the reason this post came to be. The yellow blouse is incredibly light weight cotton with a rounded collar and balloon sleeves. The wrap skirt is also a very light weight cotton with white detailing on the waist band and along the edge of the skirt. With light blue and white stripes, I can definitely see myself reaching for this throughout the warmer months for a casual, laidback vibe. Both items were in XS.
The Uniqlo x JW Anderson asymmetrical tee potentially best encapsulates why I love their many collaborations. It’s incredibly simple with a modern twist. The cotton feels light weight but not sheer and the style is understated but unique. It’s a win from me, so much so, I may have also picked it up in Black. The tees were in a size S.
These flared shorts are definitely a little out of character for me, but I just loved how comfortable and flattering they are. The combination of the elastic detail and the flared shape really emphasises the waist line. I styled this outfit with my veja sneakers for a comfortable and casual look. The shorts were in a size S.
From the collection, this item was definitely the let down for me. The navy was a brighter hue that I really did not fancy. The material was nice in quality but lacked drape. It was quite thick but just did not lay right on my frame. Whilst I love a good oversized dress, this one just didn’t quite meet my expectations. I did end up returning this but couldn’t do it without showing you a quick try on photo. The dress was in a size S.
Another very simple pairing that screams lazy weekend. There’s something about this outfit that reminds me of the Australian brand Bassike. Potentially, the structured khaki material and the quality cotton but this outfit feels a lot more polished and expensive than it really is.
Overall, Uniqlo’s JW Anderson had some really good quality basics, perfect for a laid back summer wardrobe. I didn’t love the prints that were scattered throughout the collection or the dress, but the pieces I did end up with, worked really well.
