Pronounced "Jee-Lay" or "Gee-Lay" the Gilet is a sleeveless jacket commonly known as a body warmer, primarily warn on chilly days for extra insulation. In France in the 19th century the gilet was originally worn more as a decorative or fashionable vest but today the more practical Gilet, even though it hasn't changed much in style, is based on function not fashion.

Many people think that there is a difference between a gilet and a body warmer, however with varying fashions and styles these days it is near impossible to tell with is interchangeable names - vest, bodywarmer, gilet.  Some may still say argue that there are slight differences - The gilet usually has a more streamlined slim fit and sometimes comes with hood and the body warmer is usually puffa or padded in style with a heavy focus on warmth but technically they are the same thing!
