Cavallo AW16 Helen Gilet
Our latest Tried & Tested comes from our Ambassador Alex Whisken, she bought herself this Gilet.
I have always been a huge Cavallo fan and as always this stunning gilet did not disappoint.
The thing I love most about Cavallo is the fit, they are so flattering in the way they cut their clothing, you honestly don’t notice till you try something on, look in the mirror and go ‘Dang I look good!’.
I have a fair few items of Cavallo clothing now and am always super surprised that others I know don’t really know anything about them. They have all heard of other big name brands but, not Cavallo. I am always the first to say you need to try them, very similar if not slightly cheaper and just a good quality and always look so good on.
Firstly the colour of this gilet, prune……eeeeekk basically a gorgeous yummy purple and no girl can ever have enough purple in her horse wardrobe. It is truly stunning with a lovely sheen in the sunlight.
It is also very lightweight but, super warm, making the most of their winter high technology. It is so comfortable to wear due to the stretch sides, making any movement easy. Even jumping up and down and wind milling your arms (yes I have actually tried this).
The Helen softshell Cavallo gilet is a both water repellent quilt and wind and waterproof softshell whilst also still being breathable, making it highly practical for most English weather.
I have mainly been wearing mine with a lightweight long sleeve tee underneath and have found it has kept me at the perfect temperature whether out on an hours leisurely hack or a hard hours schooling, this has been in sunshine and much cooler weather.
I absolutely love mine and have and always will recommend Cavallo to everyone I know as they really do design and make the most gorgeous clothing lines.
