The other day, the weather here turned super crisp and I fell in love with a gilet. Some of you may not be familiar with the word gilet but you know exactly what it is, a sleeveless jacket (some might call a waistcoats of vest) and it’s the perfect item to transition you season to season and give you an extra layer of warmth in the dead of winter. They can be quilted, fur, fake fur, knit or any number of textures but they are incredibly stylish and that dreaded word for fashionistas – practical! The gilet is exactly what you need to layer over your knits now, over your jacket later and under your coat come any arctic spells… They can be perfect for our little one’s too keeping giving their core more warmth all while giving them the freedom to play in the leaves or snow. Check out some of my favorite gilet options and layer up this winter!
