Autumn Essentials: The Gilet
One Item, worn three different ways!
Let’s face it, autumn’s the season where you don’t know if you’ll be too hot or too cold, it’s taking the weather day by day and dressing accordingly. We’ve got the solution to the unpredictable. Introducing the gilet, an ideal transitional item that’s perfectly adaptable to suit mild or colder climates. To fully appreciate the sleeveless jacket you have to master the art of layering, adding or subtracting from an outfit to adapt to the conditions of the weather.
At the start of autumn an ideal solution would be to layer light, one way to wear would be by pairing the piece with a sweater. The Logomania trend shows no sign of slowing down and our range has something for every taste, from city names worn confidently on the chest to Farrell’s bold branding. You can add a smart element to the proceedings by wearing a polo shirt underneath or pairing with a casual plaid shirt.
A gilet looks great worn with a patterned shirt, think about selecting colours that contrast against each to make a handsomely striking pairing. Finish off the look by layering with a t-shirt and some slim-fit indigo denim. We’ve got a great range of flannel check offerings for you to check out and play with!
When the cold starts to bite, think about teaming the gilet with a jacket, a hoodie and a t-shirt, helping you layer up without looking bulky and combat the climate perfectly. It also helps you keep cool at you destination by shedding the layers upon arrival. Complete the look with a pair of chinos and some on trend desert boots ensuring you’re on the right side of smart casual.
So forget the visions of hi-vis vests and life jackets; the gilet is an efficient, effective and stylish item that can take you through the seasons, all the way from autumn to early spring!
