Casual Gilets At 80s CC
We’ve now introduced a range of casual gilets for the colder months like the Lacoste Hooded Gilet, perfect for layering up as the mercury drops.
The Autumn/Winter season is the perfect to time to flex your casual wardrobe. As the nights draw darker & the weather starts to become colder, wetter & windier, it’s that time to get them extra layers on. For the dressers though this isn’t a problem. It’s time to dust off the outerwear in the crisp autumn air & in this case the classic gilet/vest/bodywarmer or whatever your personal preference maybe. For the latest season we’ve now introduced a range of casual gilets like the Lacoste hooded Gilet, perfect for layering up in the ultimate casual style.
Also known as a vest, which translates as gilet in French, the gilet is the ideal outer layer for the colder months. The subculture connection of the popular down style started with the Paninaro in Italy back in the 1980s. Alongside the latest Best Company t-shirts & Timberland boots, the gilet became the must have outerwear piece for its bold colours and insulated down style. The gilet has also become a staple among the terraces & the casual elite of the UK for its insulation & added warmth on a cold November evening. Great to wear over a sweatshirt, hoody or t-shirt, the gilet adds added warmth to an outfit without feeling like your about to embark on a full blown excursion to the North Pole.
