Giving in to Gloves

Noir Half Palm Glove

Every year, there comes a moment of realization when winter hits us like a ton of bricks and everybody starts saying, “I need gloves”. As if we didn’t know it was coming, abruptly, we find ourselves in sub-zero temperatures, wondering why on earth we haven’t bought any yet. Typically, last year’s pair always goes missing around February when our minds start to think about Spring and less about remembering to pick up our gloves from the restaurant table. So here we are, temperatures plummeting, fingers turning blue. What time is it? Glove-shopping time!

Looking for gloves that actually flatters your hand?

Above you’ll notice the beautiful future bride to be of Prince Albert of Monaco, Charlene Wittstock wearing a pair of cutaway gloves along with her incredibly chic ensemble that would make Grace Kelly herself proud. While keeping your fingers warm (the most important part), this style of glove is still incredibly flattering, elegant on the hand and much easier to quickly take on and off.
