The gilet can have many uses in your wardrobe. During spring-summer, you can use it to layer, adding dimension and depth to your outfit and creating endless styling possibilities. For the autumn-winter, the gilet turns into a functional wardrobe necessity. Instead of just being used for its styling possibilities, the gilet becomes a crucial layering piece helping provide extra warmth during the colder months.

The winter gilet can be quilted and is usually padded with down or a synthetic alternative, and it has a high neck to extend the warmth to your neck area. It is generally detailed with a drawstring to trap the warmth, side pockets, and a full zip closure.

When it comes to the fabric of a winter gilet, you can experiment with texture and material to suit your winter looks. The autumn-winter season has the best texture to incorporate into your style from suede to corduroy.

What are the different fabrications of a gilet?

You can go classic opt for a polyester style to keep your look timeless. For a contemporary update experiment with the quilted pattern. This style from Reiss is in a wavy pattern that deviates from the traditional horizontal stitching. This switch in design elevates the simple gilet and gives it a modern spin.


My favourite gilet material for the falls season is suede. Going the leather route helps elevate the gilet.
