Navigate your way through the changing seasons in style with a gilet. Always an autumn favourite, gilets are more in demand than ever this year. Whether you’re looking for something to keep you warm on a school run, or a piece to smarten up your usual work outfit, a gilet is the perfect way to make a casual, yet chic statement on even the coldest of autumn days.

 

This season, designers have left us spoilt for choice with an exciting and diverse array of styles.

 

If you’re searching for a classic fur gilet, then look no further than ‘Celine’ by H Brand. Made from rabbit fur, it’s not only a timeless piece, but is also incredibly soft and warm. Sold at Genevieve in luxurious inky shades, the ‘Celine’ gilet is versatile and easy to wear, while still being very on-trend.

 

The Iro ‘Wallony’ gilet is almost tuxedo-like in structure. Zip it up for a smarter, more tailored look, or keep it open to give your outfit a bit of an edge. The shoulder pads make it slightly more severe than other, slouchier styles, which is perfect for bringing the trend to your workplace.

 

However, if you’re after a simpler gilet to snuggle into when walking the dog on a crisp October morning, look out for Maison Scotch’s oversized wool gilet, which comes in gorgeous earthy tones.

 

With one of the season’s key pieces being so adaptable and easy to wear, what’s holding you back from finding your perfect gilet?

Love it or loathe it, autumn is starting to creep up on us. Cosy nights in and cold October mornings are just around the corner, but don’t pack away your party shoes just yet! Here at Genevieve, we’re helping you embrace the long nights ahead with the arrival of some gorgeous new gowns.

 

Swap your light summer florals for deeper, autumnal hues, keeping your winter wardrobe fresh and fun with bold prints. Make a statement in Peter Pilotto’s ‘Freya’ dress which bursts with bright purples and oranges. The grosgrain straps on the bodice and the textured full skirt add stunning, quirky details to this show-stopping piece.

 

Also creating a sultry floral look by using a rich, dark palette, Just Cavalli adds glamour to any occasion with his subtler take on an autumnal print. The square neckline and skimming silhouette make the dress a sophisticated and elegant addition to your new winter wardrobe.

 

Both designers showcase similar prints but in shorter styles, which are more versatile than their floor-length counterparts, helping you start to embrace the new season with transitional and easy-to-wear pieces.
