Etros gilets are great too-I love the look above best, as it works well with jeans. Not sure if the one below is real fur, so although I like the style I most probably wouldn't wear it for that reason alone. Will you channel the gilet look this autumn-go for it!!

Thrift Inspiration, doing it Gucci and Etro's way!
Layering is a key trend for Autumn and what better way to do it than with a gilet (or if you prefer to call it a vest or waistcoat). They are the perfect combination with a folksy dress, jeans and top or a lovely floaty skirt. My favourites are from Gucci, Etro and Joseph, although most designers and high street stores have them this A/W 08.
They also come in different textures, materials and styles-sheepskin, wool and fur being the most in trend at the moment. I found this lovely handknitted gilet at the St Francis Hospice a few weeks ago for only £2.50. I love the trimming, it is very soft and fluffy!!
