Day 3: The 2-for-1 gilet
Day 3 of Bargainista Fashionista's countdown to Christmas brings you something suited to this week's winter wonderland.
For those of us who didn't manage to get our hands on Lanvin for H&M's faux-feather gilet (or anything else for that matter!), how about Zara's snow-white, faux-fur version instead? It's faux-fur on one side and faux-suede on the other, making it a bargainous 2-for-1 buy for just £39.99.
As you can see, I like to wear it faux-fur side out in the style of a cape. Now doesn't it look a teeny bit like the one by Céline? I like to pretend so.
As for style tips, why not wear it faux-fur side out on top of your winter coat? My friend Nargis was wearing a grey faux-fur gilet over a simple camel coat the other night and it looked both sensible and stylish given how cold it is. Just make sure your coat is streamlined in shape and a similar shade to the gilet; camel, cream and pale grey complement this Zara gilet best. So, layer up and keep warm bargainistas!
Btw, the black velvet leggings are from Topshop. At £22, they're a quick way to luxe up a look.
