{October 9, 2008}   Gilets – Stylish Yet Practical Winter Clothing Essential

Gilets are great for the Winter, as they are fashionable and practical at the same time. An excellent option for the layering look, gilets can be worn as the primary outer layer or underneath a jacket for particularly cold days (very common here in Scotland!). They look great worn with skin tight long-sleeve tops, jeans and big furry boots!. There are a few differing types of gilet, with outdoor, hooded, ‘puffa’ style and faux-fur gilets being the most popular on the high street. As per usual, we have scanned the web for some of the best examples of the women’s gilet:

Per una katie Gilet from M&S – Good old Marks come up with a sleek looking gilet, with an attractive square-padding finish.

Principles – Quilted Gilet – We love the big-collar effect of this gilet.

North Face Nuptuse Gilet – North Face have been the outdoor kings for years, and they have became very fashionable in recent years. This Gilet will definitely keep you nice and cosy.

Peacocks Women’s Gilets – Our favourite cheap clothes store have a predictably sweet range of women’s gilets – we are big fans of the hooded gilet below and we also we like the faux-fur range, gives a tinge of glamour to the winter wardrobe.

Love your blog, cheap fashion is so what we need now!

Can I ask a stupid question – what exactly is the difference between a gilet and a fleece. I know a fleece sometimes has sleeves and sometimes doesn’t and when it doesn’t people seem to call it a fleece or a gilet interchangably. Do you know how to tell them apart, because I’m not sure I do!

Wardrobe woes? Worry not!
