A Few of My Favourite Things... Gilets

No longer the oversized, shapeless, puffer of times gone by, the gilet is now a streamlined fashion piece which skims your silhouette without adding bulk. They are ideal for layering with knits as you won't get that frustrating bunching in the sleeves that you do with close fitting jackets and blazers, I really hate that! They also keep your underarms free to 'breathe' whilst keeping your torso toasty when the weather doesn't quite warrant the need for a big coat. Mint Velvet have some great gilets at the moment and I had difficulty in choosing one to feature, but here are my pick of some of the best:
