It's that time of the year again when UNIQLO U announces a new collection of affordably-priced essentials. Thankfully, Spring/Summer 2022 is nothing short of par for the course—with its no-fuss earth tones and cool colors.

This season, men's, women's, and kid's items are issuing perfectly plain earth tones such as olive, sandy beige, and brown. For those who dig the UNIQLO U aesthetic, this is a welcome sight—as is the cool-hued blue and purple that's seen on some of its signature pieces. Jackets are workwear inspired while coats are tech-y, there's a generous offering of T-shirts, and then some.

In the realm of outerwear, a lightweight nylon down puffer coat comes with a cross-body sling—allowing for freer movement while carrying a load. The garment plays on proportions with a fitted silhouette, long sleeves, and a high neckline. Underneath it all is an oversized pocket that provides storage space for small items.

A standout piece that falls under outerwear is a trench coat—coming in dusty rose and navy with subtle shirting stripes at the collar and cuffs, respectively. The double-breasted style has an exterior pocket with snap closures, as well as interior pockets.

For those who want to pare down their spring essentials, there's a lightweight mac coat made from RENODRY fabric. The garment features chest pockets with snap buttons, darts at the back for an easy fit, and adjustable cuffs that can be worn up or rolled down to suit different tastes.

For the guys, UNIQLO U has some handsome button-down shirts coming out in the collection. There's a white and blue check with a spread collar and real corozo buttons running down the front placket—as well as a heathered, sandy beige shirt that features a fold-down collar.There are also two options for the ladies: a shirtdress with a Peter Pan collar and shirttails—that can be tied up at the sides—and a shirtdress with an oversized collar that's designed to look like traditional Japanese shirting.
