As countries are welcoming guests with open arms again, many of us have made plans to leave Thailand, and may be looking for weather-appropriate clothing to explore those new horizons. We’ve curated a list of local fashion labels for all genders that are worth checking out.
Autumn and winter
WhatWeWearrr is an online shop for women that specialises in creating cute and fashionable sweater vests, cardigans, light coats, puffy coats and long boots, perfect for the brisk Autumn weather. Buy their products through Facebook or Instagram, or via platforms like Shopee, and your ‘outfit of the day’ Instagram story is guaranteed to look aesthetic.

Gents, if you’re looking for chic clothes for cooler climes while also staying away from fast fashion, Renim Project reconstructs vintage denim into shirts, jackets, bags, and more, for men. Dedicated to creating a sustainable fashion label without compromising on style, their range of jackets are a modern and great addition to any closet. www.renimproject.com/
Although Uniqlo is one of the more affordable brands on this list, their selection remains impeccable, and is one of the reasons they continue to be well known and beloved. Selling menswear, womenswear and even options for kids, they are a one-stop store for fashion essentials. Have a look at their outerwear selection for jackets, hoodies and blazers or some of their HEATTECH innerwear to keep you toasty during those long winter nights. www.uniqlo.com/th/en/

Their selection ranges from raincoats and fleece jackets, to well insulated mountain jackets. They also offer tops, trousers, footwear, and other adventure equipment. https://thenorthface.lotsthailand.com/
