Diane's plus size fashion blog, November 2015
Nov. 28th Faux Fur Gilet in Natural or Dark Brown, to plus size 22, from Debenhams
Todays gilet is a layering option and in a very on trend 70's styling vibe. Its faux fur, and available in both Natural (as I'm wearing above) and in Dark Brown up to plus size 22. The long 68cm shoulder to hem body length also qualifies this little number as a sleeveless jacket. So this gives you loads of options - wear with jeans, longer BoHo style skirts or over folksy style dresses.
Ideally to get the "Just Right Look" I recommend wearing it with a floppy hat. I think I have just about got away with wearing it with a baker boy cap.
As well as being an inexpensive layering option, its also another of my 'easy care easy wear' recommendations. The gilet is machine washable, but DO NOT tumble dry. I have found that this garment will dry naturally quite quickly if hung on a clothes hanger and suspended in a warm, airy place.
I am 5' 9" tall and size UK18. I am wearing size 18 and it is a good fit.
To see more, and see just how it fits and sits, have a look at the video below.
