Five More Ways to Wear A Long Gilet

Five more ways to Wear a Long Gilet

As we were putting together the video for this brilliant wardrobe basic we came up with more ideas than we could pop into the video without it becoming longer than War & Peace, so we took photos of a few alternatives. We have popped them below with links to the garments worn. 

A word of warning. We both would rather swim naked in the wash in February than have our photo taken so please ignore the various stages of forced grin you will see displayed.
 

Black is Back

In the first photo black is back. Donna is wearing the slightly shorter Knitted Long Gilet over a knitted dress that is from Artichoke but probably five or six years old. Models own everything else.

 

 

Gorgeous Greys

I have loved wearing grey this winter which has made a change from my usual uniform of monochrome navy or black.
 
I have the The Smart Knitted Coatigan in this colour & have lived in it, teaming it up with a grey roll neck & our flannel pinstripe trousers  however with this outfit I was looking for a more dressed down outfit.
 
The Heavy Knitted Long Gilet is perfect for now especially as all we hear about in the news is rising fuel costs! With the coatigan it is our go to extra layer of warmth when we are working in the shop & of course when spring arrives it doubles up as a sleeveless coat.
 
£60 to buy – cost per wear pennies.

Dressed Down

Stonewash Jeans, a plaid shirt & a long gilet. Perfect for January, then …. wear the shirt open over a tee in spring or tucked now under a blazer. Obvs jeans are a year round investment & the gilet will look great as a sleeveless coat once spring arrives.
 
 

 

Getting In The Swing

This is the photo where we found the solution to our fixed grins, ‘the model’ walks around the centre of the shop whilst ‘the photographer’ takes lots of photos, a top tip for more natural pictures!

The silver Heavy Knitted Long Gilet that I am wearing is another brilliant trans seasonal piece. Worn here with our Stretch Jersey Shirt from K-Design, once the sun starts shining you can pair it up with the white  Basic T-Shirt from Signature & it will look pretty fab too. 

 

Out On The Tiles

Worn here over a Leather jacket, Black Jeans & a gold T-shirt that we sold at Artichoke several summers ago, Donna takes her gilet effortlessly from day into evening & a spring outfit to the middle of winter when teamed with a large scarf
