Trend Alert: Boho Gilet


When I saw this image from the latest Warehouse ad campaign I realised how small the fashion trends cycle has gotten. It reminded me of the Sienna Miller boho look from 2002 when we were all wearing low slung long gypsy skirts with big Moroccan belts and layering faux-fur gilets over paisley tops. Minus the maxi-skirt, that's exactly the trend for this Autumn.

Paisley has already emerged on the catwalk at D&G, Matthew Williamson and Paul Smith. The main difference this season is that it has got more of a luxe vibe so add gold jewellery, and sequined scarves.

This means the return of the faux-fur boho gilet which also ties in nicely with the current penchant for mixed textures, for example, here at Warehouse they have added leather trousers to the look. See below for some of the gilets currently available.
