Driving gloves are hot this season. Especially when it comes to all the bold colors they come in now. The new driving gloves all have a personal twist to them that will justify the price tag, and they will definitely be wearable year after year. You don’t have to be a biker chick to appreciate these hot leather gloves. There are some really fun and charming gloves up for grabs.

Even though it has been warm in San Diego, the mornings and nights take a temperature dive, meaning my hands need some warming up when I walk my dog in the early hours. So, why not wake up in the morning, throw on my oversized sweater without make-up, and then wear some killer gloves? At least my gloves can be a glimpse of my fashion sense for me, and for those around me while walking my dog.

All but one of my picks is reasonably priced. These particular gloves are a bit more than most people would like to spend, but they are a unique and sophisticated find. I picked out 3 different gloves to make sure there is something to appeal to all personalities.

My first pick is from Bebe, and they are rocker-chic! These fuchsia gloves [top left] are awesome with the visible fingers! I really like the bold fuchsia color, and the colors that can be paired with these rocker gloves. The options are endless because you can pair the Bebe Fingerless Gloves with deep purple, blue, yellow, black and metallic. All the colors I mentioned are great fall/winter colors, and the gloves will give you the motivation to add color to that bland outfit you may be thinking about wearing during a gloomy day.

These Portolano Studded Leather Gloves [right] are my favorite because I love to wear brown leather-- it gives me that much desired sexy feel. I love the gold studs on them, giving them an edgy vibe. This color leather will look even more fabulous over time. I love pairing this color with denim and other leather for a clash look.

These next gloves are gorgeous. They are very different than my other two picks because they are less punk, but have the same boldness to compete. These gloves are a white-beige python, and very elegant. I love the fact that they have silk lining, giving your fingers the extra luxurious feel they deserve. The best thing about these Guanti Python Gloves is that no one will have them, plus, people rarely wear white gloves-- which make me want to wear them even more!

Enough said, your walks with your dog, strolls on the beach, and your drive to work can be a little more fashion conscious when wearing these sexy, edgy gloves. Who knows who you might meet when that light turns red!
