  The Tippet 25 October 2004  
Guests Aileen Ribeiro and Shelly Vella
A must-have for this season's 50s look

The tippet is back in fashion.

These fur or fake fur stole like things are exactly what you should be wearing over your winter coat if you want to fit in with this season's elegant 50s look.

They date from the middle ages when they were mainly worn by men. Since the 17th century they've mainly been worn by women apart from academics and lawyers.

So where should you get one and with what should you wear it?
Fashion Historian, Professor Aileen Ribeiro and Fashion Director of Cosmopolitan magazine, Shelly Vella  join Jenni to discuss.
