Since early fall I've been on the hunt for a gilet aka a sleeveless coat. Alas, the menswear inspired garment turned out to be elusive and I came up empty handed. Truthfully, I did find some fab versions, a structured maxi vest from Tibi for $800 smackers and a navy slightly shorter style from Vince for a cool $550. Real talk: Those price points would have swallowed my entire fall shopping budget—no retail therapy was had. I gave up all hope, until a recent trip to my local Lululemon. The plan was to pick up some new gear to get sweaty in while keeping me bundled up on my long winter runs. The last thing I thought I would discover from the Canadian founded activewear mecca is the trendy fashion piece that I'd been coveting. My four month search had at last ended, I found the Lululemon quick-change vest for the reasonable price tag of $148. The website states the piece is designed to keep your core warm and includes a sweat-wicking spacer shell and an ultra-light liner. The four-way stretch fabric is perfect for travel, giving you minimal to no creasing. Oh, did I mention it converts into three different pieces? Well, it does, meaning it's even more bang for your buck! Of course it's a great piece to layer over your favourite hoodie and leggings post boot camp class, but it can do so much more. It’s elegant enough to sport to an important meeting, resting on top of a button down blouse and cropped trousers, while still being hip enough to wear over a frothy romantic dress for a night out with your pals. It's truly a seasonless item, its styling potential is pretty much endless.
