Not really stylish or beautiful but can we talk thermals please?
Uniqlo for the win! I have merino stuff for outdoor activities and it is excellent but the Uniqlo ones are terrific for work and being around the house. I’m wearing a long sleeved white one under a black cashmere jumper to work this morning and will be both smart and warm.
Absolutely merino without a shadow of a doubt. And don't scrimp. They are worth every penny.
All the decent makes cost similar amounts, £50-£60 per piece for longs, less for shorties and vests. Keep an eye out for sales! Even Decathlon are not cheap. But good merino is non-scratchy, machine-washable and will last for years.
One of the huge advantages of pure merino is that you don't need to wash it after every wear, just air it. Also does not get sweaty or build up a static electricity charge.
Get wool socks, too. Something like 75% wool 25% nylon is better than 100% wool. Nylon makes the socks more hard-wearing.
