Upgrade your winter wardrobe with a stylish fur gilet
Offering practicality, style, comfort and versatility, a real fur gilet is the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe.
One of the great things about the weather getting colder is that it gives you an excuse to supplement your wardrobe with cosy new winter clothing that will keep you warm when the temperatures drop. But this doesn’t have to mean buying a whole new wardrobe. For winter 2019, there is just one item of clothing you need to stay ahead of the fashion pack – a grey, real fur gilet.
Gilets have come a long way since they originated as decorative bodices in the nineteenth century, and have long been popular on the sports terraces. However, the humble gilet has recently undergone somewhat of a style revolution, moving from the playing field to the runway, and becoming a firm fashion favourite.
All about grey
From interiors to clothing, grey is one of the biggest colour trends for 2019, and a grey fur gilet is a great way to incorporate this trend into your winter wardrobe. Softer than black, and less stark than white, grey is the perfect neutral shade for winter and can be combined with almost any other colour. Team it with other neutrals and softer shades for a cool, classic and polished look, or use it as an accent colour to break up bolder tones.
A fur resurgence
A fashion no-no for decades, real fur has seen something of a fashion resurgence in recent years, thanks in a large part to the growth of the ethical and sustainable fur trade. It is one of the hottest fabrics around at the moment; several designers have sent fur items down the runway, and celebrities and influencers have been only to keen to show off their fur clothing and accessories on social media and in public appearances.
It’s no mystery as to why fur is such a popular fabric. As a natural material, fur is both comfortable and luxurious, and is really effective at keeping you warm and cosy – just what you need on a frosty winter’s morning. Style-wise, fur clothing offers a touch of vintage glamour and timeless elegance that will keep you looking stylish and put-together, whether you’re out on the town or doing the school run.
One of the biggest benefits of a grey fur gilet is that it is an incredibly versatile item of clothing and can be styled in a number of different ways. Fur gilets are available in a wide array of different shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find something that suits your own personal taste. Combine a waist-length fur gilet with skinny jeans and ankle boots for a more casual look, or go for maximum drama (and warmth!) by covering up with a long grey fur gilet.
Alongside its versatility, a real fur gilet also wins points for sheer practicality. The British weather is notoriously unpredictable and it can be difficult to know what to wear for the best. The sleeveless design of a gilet means that it can adapt to wide array of weather conditions, making it ideal not just for winter but also for spring and autumn. It also enables you to stay warm and cosy without being restricted by a bulky winter coat and, with your arms left unencumbered, you have the freedom to drink coffee, carry shopping bags, or do whatever else you need to do.
So, don’t sacrifice fashion for comfort this winter. Give your wardrobe a lift with a warm, practical and stylish grey fur gilet that will look great all year round.
