Gilet, the Best a Woman Can Get!

Worn with a lumberjack plaid or a bespoke gown, the gilet is a cool weather staple and a key layering piece! Whether faux, shearling or ermine, knee-length or cropped, this class of vest is both luxurious and flattering, particularly when belted!

I love this trend, although some of the vests were freaky in that "is that human hair?" kind of way. I love your blog, but if I might come with a little criticism: I wish you arranged the pictures a little less messy, as it makes it difficult to read your text. =)

I'm still kicking myself for getting rid of a zip-up fur vest with brown leather back a few years ago. These are beautiful!

Gorgeous - the Derek Lam was divine but I hope no real fur. I love the length, perfect.

Hmm I'm not a huge fan of fur (faux or fake), but that last Robert Rodriguez look with the orange sheath dress and the gray vest is really chic.

coco said...

Oh there are so many great ones I can't even pick a favourite. Ashley Olsen wore a great one about two years ago that I still remember.

Crave said...

A real investment! Gilets are so much cuter than coats.

Becca Jane said...

I really like vests - but I'm not sure about the fur ones - Faux fur can be okay.

I want one so bad, but I don't think I would look right in one. Ever since I saw rachel zoe in one...I was completly speechless.

I really love the Just Cavalli one! I'm not so sure about someone walking the street in that whole outfit though lol.
