Trends Autumn/Winter '09-'10 : Vests and Gilets
Gilets are one of those pieces that won't go away this decade. If you had invested in a vest last winter, hold on to it. They are convenient, can elevate layering to an art form and can always add a touch of style to an otherwise drab outfit.
This year, the gilets are on the longer side and I like the way Ralph Lauren used them to liven up conservative plead suits. They came in mostly faux fur and Mongolian lamb wool but houses like CNC Costume Nation and Dsquared2 also showed them in leather.
How to wear it?
Belting them over dresses gives them that eye-catching tiered look and
they look amazing with over-the-knee boots or layered with other sleeveless coats.
