Though you may not want to think about it, the coldest days of the year are still just ahead. Which means, securing layering pieces that'll keep you warm in freezing temperatures should be high on your list of priorities. Luckily, there are a slew of winter essentials under $100 available at Uniqlo that you can snag before the next big chill rolls in.

Japanese retailer Uniqlo is known for delivering wardrobe staples for all seasons, but its winter assortment has arguably the strongest lineup of styles, to date. And, at the heart of this offering is its HEATTECH collection, which has a wide selection of everyday basics that generate heat from your body to keep you warm and comfortable.

In addition to HEATTECH styles, you can grab pieces like plush fleece jackets and luxe cashmere sweaters for wallet-friendly prices. So, when your coat is not quite cutting it, you can slip on one of the brand's easy-to-layer items underneath.

That said, don't wait until the last minute to strengthen your winter wardrobe. Do yourself a favor, and continue on to stock up on key layering pieces that'll make the next few months more bearable. Ahead, see a short list of Uniqlo styles that will get you started.


HEATTECH Ultra Warm High-Neck T-Shirt

This high-neck top is ideal for the coldest of days, as the brand notes it's 2.25 times warmer than the regular HEATTECH (securing its 5-star rating). Layer it under everything from blazers to dresses to fight freezing temperatures.


HEATTECH Ultra Warm Crew Neck T-Shirt

Don't let the warmth escape with this 5-star rated fitted crewneck top that's racked up over 110 reviews from customers. Its soft brushed interior will provide the insulation you seek while also wicking moisture away to keep your body feeling comfortable throughout the day.


HEATTECH Ultra Warm Leggings

Offered in four other shades in addition to black, these well-reviewed leggings offer a warm, cozy brushed lining. The fitted silhouette will allow them to easily be slipped under pants for extra cold days.


HEATTECH Extra Warm Turtleneck T-Shirt

This is a style you'll want to snag in a couple of colors. A turtleneck is already a must-have item for winter, and when you add Uniqlo's HEATTECH to it, well, it only makes this piece more likely to be the MVP of your wardrobe for the coldest months of the year.


Fluffy Yarn Fleece Full-Zip Jacket

Offered in a slew of colors, this super-soft fleece jacket is another well liked product from Uniqlo. Slip the quick-drying style on under your outerwear for extra protection against the elements.

HEATTECH Ribbed Knitted Tights

Don't push your leg-baring skirts and dresses to the back of the closet just yet; snag a pair (or two) of these ribbed tights, which have deodorizing, bio-warming, insulating, anti-microbial, anti-odor, and moisturizing comfort features.
