Basics have been the longest occupants in my wardrobe simply because I haven't grew out of it, and I probably never will. I love basics for its versatility to match anything from floral to funky, and it'll always carry the certified clean and smart vibe I adore. Uniqlo is huge on basics like I am, and for that I've naturally became a walking wardrobe for them.

I love that despite being an imported brand, Uniqlo caters to Asian sizings and cutting pretty well. Not only that, they provide clothings for everyone and across gender, which makes it a good compromise for families going shopping!

Another attractive point would be the affordability they offer for their clothings. Less pinch for greater value! Two days back I visted the store and bagged a steal of 2 basic tees at only $7.90 each! I'm a person who would rather pay for quality than get something cheaper that lacks comfort and durability. Uniqlo stands out because it offers very decent quality for a pocket friendly price which is very hard to find in Singapore, where we pay so much taxes for imported goods.

The comfort of the apparels is another buying point that Uniqlo brands themself on. True enough, even the skinny jeans hugs so well it feels like tights that I could dance in! However, one thing to look out for would be to try on the apparel instead of blindly going with your usual sizing because it definitely differs considerably. For example the chino cropped jeans I bought was almost 2 size down from my usual, and I was informed that apparently it would shrink after wash, so do note to adjust your fit accordingly.

Clothings aside, I personally love the bright and organized layout to all of their outlets. It is indeed a trademark characteristic of the Japanese, but most importantly it evokes a kind of ambience that makes shopping so carefree that customers like me would return time after time, knowing how reliable this brand has grown to be.

If you're looking for something comfortable and long-lasting to wear, Uniqlo is the perfect place to visit. I always, before a holiday, visit Uniqlo to get some extra clothes that I know won't give in on me during my long vacations.

Uniqlo's designs range from simple to slightly elaborate. I've never seen something very striking in terms of fashion, yet they don't really cut that simple feel due to the wide array of clothing they have. In any case, if you have the eye for matching clothes, then this is nothing to worry about. I especially love their denim leggings. I find jeans really uncomfortable to wear since they're quite thick and always seem to be rough on the inside, so finding Uniqlo's denim leggings made me over the moon. Its material is smooth and your legs can actually breathe while still pulling off a partial 'skinny jeans' look.

Overall, Uniqlo's quality of clothes is probably its most attractive feature.

Uniqlo is one of the better shops for budget-conscious shoppers. It offers a wide range of clothes of different designs and types that will not tear a hole in your wallet. I liked the fact that most of the shirts sold there are plain and do not have any patterns printed on it. It is because of that that Uniqlo has become my favourite go-to place for everyday clothes.

However, I realised that the quality of their clothes aren’t constant and is in fact gradually decreasing. The first shirt I bought fit nicely after multiple wash, a sharp contrast to what the shirt they sell now. I’m not saying the shirt gets really loose after a while — it simply gets loose and makes the shirt appear older than it actually is.

I still visit Uniqlo, but only when the mall doesn't have H&M.

As a student, I would consider Uniqlo products to be straining on my wallet. However, after having the opportunity to buy a few pieces from them, I can say that what you pay is for quality products. I got a white long-sleeved shirt ($34.90) that manages to double up as both for work and for casual outings, a pair of denim dark blue jeans ($34.90) that fit well and for ladies, makes your buttocks look slimmer! The jeans are also cheaper than their Levi counterparts, so it is definitely recommended. The white long-sleeved shirt is a good fit at the shoulders and tapers inwards to flatter your waist.

I also love their t-shirts because of the great partnerships with other brands like Peanuts, and good unique designs. Uniqlo offers a wide variety of clothings, from t-shirts to shirts to jeans to leggings to socks. And if you're a mother, they also offer clothing for little tots!

One thing that amuses me the most is how the staff always shout "WELCOME TO UNIQLO!" and it never fails to put me in a happy mood as I see the casual yet efficient way the staff go about their duties. Conveniently located at many places like Somerset, Chinatown and Orchard, do not worry about having to go out of your way to visit.

I'm personally a huge fan of Uniqlo's jeans. Usually, I will buy the slim fit ones. Their jeans are really comfortable and long lasting, justifying the moderate price tag that you pay for them. Earlier this year, I bought my heat tech from them as well when I went over to the United States to do my student exchange. The heat tech was thin, comfortable but traps heat really well. I think if not for the heat tech i wouldn't have survived Minnesota's weather.

Uniqlo have outlets everywhere selling almost similar things. Their staff have been trained to say "Welcome to Uniqlo"; something everyone can identify with. I think it's hilarious but it certainly makes the environment more cheerful. Uniqlo uses good quality materials for their products, I would recommend this brand for anyone looking for casual wear or even winter clothes.

There are quite a few branches of this Japanese clothing store, at various places in Singapore. They offer anything from underwear to jackets to shirts and pants. I like their jackets and coats, particularly because Uniqlo has very nice prices for the jackets.

They have very nice T shirts and other kinds of casual wear. The prices are generally quite affordable, and can get even better with promotions. Their clothes also offer quality, and I have bought a few jackets and shirts I personally very well love.

The shirts themselves also have very unique designs, and they do not have branding of any sort. If you are looking for a clothing store that is cheap and good, Uniqlo is for you.

You know there's a Uniqlo around the corner when you hear the loud screeches of "WELCOME TO UNIQLOO" that somehow manages to cascade across the entire shopping centre. For some reason someone thought that having staff yell in high-pitched unison every 5 seconds would be well-received by customers.

Perhaps that strategy is to make sure customer spend as little time in the store; to get what they want and get out. I wouldn't be surprised if that was true, given Uniqlo's supermarket-esque store design. In a sense, it works much like one. Uniqlo is my go-to place to get essentials for my wardrobe, much like Fairprice is to me when the fridge needs restocking. Socks, underwear, shirts, whatever, Uniqlo high-quality products are guaranteed to last.

Uniqlo has opened up quite a number of stores in Singapore and it mainly focuses on the basics and of course their quality. Every time I see a Uniqlo store around the corner I would just go in to walk one round, there is a wonderful spread of clothings - from camisoles to jeans to office wear to winter wear. Not to mention, they have this colourful display of shirts and jeans! They are arranged like in the colour spectrum that appeal to the eye, at least to mine, so I always walk out of the store feeling happy.

Who is the one who say vibrant colours make you feel good? It can get a little on the pricey side, but there are sales once in a while when good quality clothes are pretty much affordable. Their cotton shirts are really soft and nice, some of them have sun protection which is really nice. I especially like their jeans; the cutting is quite good, simple and clear cut, and in house alteration is provided too! How convenient!

People who like basics should try some of their pieces, Well, it is always good to have some basics in your wardrobe! I personally love how versatile basics are so Uniqlo is pretty good for me.

Even before Uni Qlo arrived in Singapore, my family has patronised this brand. I would definitely encourage those trying to build a versatile wardrobe to start at Uni Qlo. It has great basics that the company constantly improves on and fits well for a large range of people. I think that perhaps this is it's forte.

From the loud calls of "Welcome to Uni Qlo" to the bright lights, it probably isn't the most personalised store but more of a mass production "grab & go" but it fulfils it's purpose. I'd recommend for new buyers to try to grab the jeans and camisoles. Also look out for the clearance shelves that sells the past season's at a fantastic rate.

I like that Uni Qlo tries to keep it's stock fresh by partnering with other companies, some that don't even usually produce clothing! The rack of winter wear that they pull out around October is also one of my highlights, especially if I'm travelling. Heat Techs, one of their concepts, has braved me through the winters of London and Paris so I have a deep respect for them.

Furthermore, no obvious branding on their part so you never have to worry about having "U n i q l o" splashed across your chest. However, do consider if you can find a more affordable piece elsewhere before purchasing at Uni Qlo as I have noticed the prices have recently gone up considerably.

To sum Uniqlo up in one word - boring. The clothes are plain with rather dull colors, and I see an item of clothing similar to another no less than three times. The design of the clothes are rather drab with a not-so-drab price. They don't seem to bring in any new designs either.

I've only went into Uniqlo thrice and that's about it. No point going in to look at clothes I've already seen about a bajillion times. What's more, I could get the same basic shirts and tank tops at about half the price or less from Cotton On and such. The only good thing about Uniqlo in my opinion is it's quality, which is a little higher than average and the materials are quite stretchy and comfortable.

However, I'm still retaining my opinion that it is a 'never-visit-again' place as I personally prefer design slightly over comfort.
