If The Glove Fits...

Wear it! Season after season we have seen the gloves constantly reinventing themselves. From the homeless style with no fingers which made an appearance on the catwalk three years ago, to mittens just last year, we have finally come to, my favorite glove, the evening glove.

So what is making them hop off the runway into my closet? The way they appear. When I see them, I think 40's Hollywood glamour. Mysterious, yet ritzy. Classic, yet new. They seem to magically come together with a short wrap or a coat. Effortless, but so chic. Sheer genius.




Let's take a look at some of the hot glove styles off the runway...




United Bamboo. These are the gloves I love. Metallic slouchies. Don't they look killer? I wouldn't have, personally, paired them with all gray. It's a little too blah for me, but I do love that look. Also, I'm noticing this year on the runway, that United Bamboo is pairing a lot of vests with blazers. They give a very sophisticated, layered look, without getting too busy. It's a look you could pull off, which is rather hard to find on the runway.



Y & Kei Water the Earth. Along with the metallic gloves, you also have patent leather. If worn correctly and paired with pieces that match, this look can look perfect. Two-toning is very in, which we can see here (the blue and black). I have always loved their walks, and this show had to be high on my favorites list for this season. Tights have also reinvented themselves from school-girl to classic chic. Perfection.

LOVE elbow length gloves with short or not sleeve dresses and tops in the fall and winter!! Probably my favorite trend of all, next to (hidden) platforms and belts!!
