Transitional favourite – the fur gilet

You know how it is when the weather takes a turn for autumnal, and it’s not quite cold enough for a big coat yet, but your light jacket just isn’t cutting it? Well, that’s when it’s time for a transitional favourite, the fur gilet.

The fur gilet is a fantastic transitional fashion icon – and this season it’s even more popular than ever, being rooted in the 1970s. Yeah, we’re having a 1970s moment in fashion, in case you wondered…

So, grab a fur gilet and pop it over a polo neck, add some flares and a floppy hat and you’re 1970s-ready. DCI Gene Hunt is waiting for you to travel back to him and the rest of the Life On Mars crew. In fact, if you are looking for 1970s style ispiration, then look no further than a few episodes of that brilliant TV show.

Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah, the fur gilet. So, fake fur, fake alpaca, fake fluff, fake shearling. As long as it’s all fake, we’re all over it. We love an oversized fur gilet, we love a gilet that just has a fur hood if fake all over is too much for you. We love the palest of creams, and we love the deepest black, and everything inbetween.
