Yay Or Nay? It’s a trend that’s dividing the entire Look office, but are you brave enough to give the outdoorsy gilet a go?
‘I’m perpetually cold, so I’m willing to try anything that promises heatinducing superpowers. With a flannel shirt, girlfriend jeans and patent heeled boots, they’ll look the high fash part. Anyone who buys one, however, should take an oath not to ever wear it with hiking boots.’ Hellll no… ‘Not to sound like a fashion autocrat (I wish), but I’d discourage anyone contemplating a padded gilet. I just can’t help but feel they’re the sort of thing David Cameron might reach for when looking for something “trendy”. I get it, they’re warm. But you know what else will preserve your body temperature? A coat.’
