THE EASY
EXTRA LAYER

Versatile, warm and handsome – make a two-tone gilet your go-to cover-up for casual, off-duty looks, urges M&S.com menswear editor, Daniel Copley.

This season, as fashion would have it, the key to remaining cosy while looking effortlessly cool is to go coatless. Worn over a chunky knit instead of traditional outerwear, or under an unstructured blazer for extra insulation, the bodywarmer is a weekend wardrobe essential. Reinvented for 2014 in padded two-tone, it’s no longer just a practical style staple, but a statement in itself.
