Wardrobe Update: The Sheepskin Gilet

Gilet: £159.20, Wallis. Cashmere sweater: Gap. Skinny jeans: £40, Oasis. Bag: Todd Lynn Edition at Debenhams. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (in plain black here)
A sheepskin gilet is something I've wanted for forever. The perfect jacket for the humid inbetween days we've been having lately. The thing is, they're expensive. That's just it. If you want a chic, expensive looking one anyway.

Step forward the Wallis black long line sheepskin gilet. It's excellent quality and elevates every outfit to the next level. At £199 and with extra discount at the moment, it's a wardrobe statement worth getting your hands on quickly!

My new favourite cross-body leather bag: £79, Todd Lynn Edition at Debenhams

How To Wear:

1. Cashmere crew-neck jumper, £59.90, Uniqlo

2. Ponyskin clutch, £139, Hobbs

3. Neoprene culottes, £38, Atterley Road

4. Acetate sunglasses, £17.99, Mango

5. Gold-plated silver ring, roughly £85, Sophie by Sophie

6. Wool slip-on trainers, £20, Asos

I've also had a few questions about my leopard flats. They're the Jimmy Choo 'Wheel' slippers, they're rubber soled and the most comfiest, versatile flats I've ever owned. Money well spent.

  1. You always find the best things! This is one of my most favourite looks on you. I have the JC Wheels too - black leather with the studs and yes they are worth it!

  2. Love this look Alex! What fabric is the back of the gilet? Thanks, Hannah

    1. It's suede, which is good as it's not too bulky at the back, then x

  3. Hi Alex, love the cross body bag, can it be used as a clutch and also is it 'squishy' ? Xx

    1. Yes, the straps are removeable so it's a clutch too - and it's very "squishy" - like Whistles textured leather xx

  4. Am loving the gilet on you. Would love to get one but they always seem too bulky on me or I get the "I'm going to slay a yak" type of you have any recommendations?

    1. I know what you mean, this is the perfect jacket for this time of year, as it's best worn with a fine knit so it doesn't look too bulky...the J Crew tippi sweater is the best!
