Trend Tracker : Faux Fur Gilets

This trend never really seems to go away! It seems the reinvention of the boho each years means the revival of Gilets. I love it to be honest as i'm nesh!

Here's Gucci 2008:

And Miu Miu 2009:

Here's DKNY's version 2009:

Here's my tips for this trend:

* The secret to this trend is keeping it effortless like Nicole, so make sure you dress down to make the gilet draw the focus:

This look a like from Miss Selfridge is perfect - £55

* Use a longer styles to hide problem areas such as hips and bums.

ASOS - £52

* Go for a girly look by teaming with an on trend check dress and boots:

La Redoute - £35.00

* Use belted fitted ones to compliment your shape and stop you looking too top heavy:

Promod - £28.00

Designer Lust : Rebecca Taylor - £355

I love this trend and am so glad that it seems to stick around for a little longer than I initially guessed it would. Nicole R always looks fab!
