Gilets, waistcoats or sleeveless jackets. There are many different names for this clothing item that both men and women, as well as kids, love wearing on a daily basis. It’s one of those go-to things one has in the back seat of one’s car or hanging by the door. You also get bonus points if the basics are made out of warm, quality materials, like fleece. In sum, a basic item we all need in our wardrobe is a warming fleece gilet.
Understandably, most of us build our wardrobes starting with basics. Basics are super easy to combine with other items of clothing into an outfit, and you rarely go wrong. T-shirts, leggings, jackets, gilets, these are the basics that we all need for practical and stylish reasons. And the best thing about basics is that they never go out of style.
Gilets are truly versatile pieces of clothing, whether you’re talking about sport one or other kinds. A gilet is a trademark of a stylish woman, no matter the colour or material. It’s a shortcut to a put-together look and fancy outfit. Use your fleece gilet over a cute shirt to show off your sleeves, or layer it under a leather jacket or stylish tweed waistcoat to keep warm.

How to create a fleece gilet women’s outfit
Our Columbia gilets are very versatile and designed to be a part of various outfits and styles. If you’re going for a casual look for a shopping trip or an afternoon coffee, pair one of our zip gilets with a basic T-shirt and some jeans and runners.
For a trip to the gym when it’s chilly outside, you’ll need something warm to throw on after your workout. You guessed it. A padded fleece gilet is just the right thing.
Going on a winter vacation that will involve sub zero temperatures, snow and wind? Our women’s collection is designed to be used for layering. Start with a light shirt and a gilet. Add a puffer or a water resistant jacket, and strap on some boots.
Many people make the mistake of thinking gilets are designed to be worn only when it is cold outside. Have you ever been chilly in the summer, when the sun sets, and you feel like you need a lightweight layer, but nothing too heavy?
They are made of fabrics that make them an ideal option for a chilly summer evening walk. Also, have we mentioned pockets? We’ve come to understand that women adore pockets, and we want you to be happy when shopping for any of our items so we’ve kept this in mind.
How to pick out the perfect women’s gilet
You probably know your size already, but just in case, measuring won’t hurt. When you’ve got your measurements, use the filtering options on your left. Our sizes range from extra small to extra large, and you can also set different parameters to narrow down your search.
