Elevate your layering game by wearing a gilet — one of the most versatile and practical layering items you can have in your wardrobe. The sleeveless silhouette can be styled over any top or light jacket or worn under a winter coat for extra warmth during the colder seasons.
This season there is a wealth of gilet styles you can choose. From a practical down to a trendy utility vest, there will be a style that will suit your style.
Here my favourite men’s gilets you should have in your wardrobe.
THE PADDED GILET
The padded gilet your most practical option, providing an extra boost of warmth during transitional seasons. Style over a chunky knit.
THE UTILITY GILET
Straight off the utility trend rack, the utility gilet is the trendiest gilet option to layer and style. Wear with cargo pants and a roll neck.
THE KNITTED GILET
The knitted wool gilet combines the functionality of a utility gilet with the soft warmth of knitwear.
THE QUILTED GILET
The quilted gilet is your answer to insulation without the bulk that comes with the down gilet. For this reason, this style can be easily slipped under any winter coat.
THE PILE GILET
The pile gilet is your comfortable option out of the five. A great styling tip is to clash the pile texture with another autumn-winter fabric such as cord.
