5 Practical Gloves With Style to Spare

My hands and feet are always cold in the winter months. The harsh cold air doesn’t help keep my hands warm and moist, so besides implementing hand care in my am and pm ritual, I have also taken a liking to all kinds of gloves.

Although the purpose of gloves are to keep one’s hands warm and cozy, I look at any accessory as an opportunity to express myself. Whether you are wearing a funky, elegant glove or just want to keep warm in the snow, try to embrace your certain mood and keep your environment in mind. I won’t feature thick ski or snowboarding gloves but I will feature more fashionable gloves that keep you warm and looking spiffy.

Black leather gloves are always a staple and this feature is a staple pair with a small accent. This cute pair from Wilsons Leather has a dangling heart charm from the zipper and will not look overbearing with glitz, but look simple for everyday cold weather wear.

If you need to wear a sassier looking glove, then check out Vince Camuto’s fingerless gloves. You can wear these gloves all the way up to your elbows, and you can type away on your computer or use your cell phone without issues while looking like a hippie/rocker.

Need flair? Well then you will appreciate the Magnolia Plaza Knit Gloves. They come in grey and in violet colors. This is an adorable pair that makes you feel like a big girl. Moreover, the gloves look very feminine and will protect your hands during a night of ice-skating. These gloves look comfortable while making your hands look edible. They are just too cute to pass up.

If you need more leather options with a bit more excitement, then how about the always cool animal print accent. Bloomingdale’s leather gloves come in black and brown and have cashmere lining, which makes them more appealing. Keep yourself in style with the pony hair leopard across the wrist with a perfect buckle to tie it all together.

Since we should always try to remember to act selflessly during this time of year, I’ve decided to recommend a pair of gloves for the younger segment of my audience. This pair is a perfect gift for a teenage girl that needs to learn that keeping her hands warm is necessary during the colder months. This Juicy faux fur, fingerless glove comes with an iPhone cover that’s bright and will definitely give a young girl a big smile.
