Winter is here and there is nothing worse than when your hands are freezing and lacking in some stylish loving. I want to address one of the most overlooked fashion accessories, THE GLOVE. It’s obvious on a cold winter day they generally serve the purpose of keeping those hands warm. There is no rule to say that having a fetish for leather gloves or gloves in general is bad. You may ask; why wear them at all? What’s the power of owning a good pair of gloves?
For me, wearing gloves gives an outfit an element of sophistication. A glove can enhance your overall look and style. I like the message a man gives when he wears a glove (power, sophistication, commonsense). You can tell a lot about a person from the look of his hands. Are his hands long, slim, rugged or soft? Does he wear a ring? Is he single? Hands are very underrated body parts.
What Colour should You Go For
If your struggling with deciding on a colour, then your best bets lie with black or grey – versatile, understated, sophosticated. Colour depends how often you will use them, what/where are they for, what style you are going for. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and reach for those rich reds, oranges and blues.
The Master of Wearing Gloves With Suits
Karl Lagerfeld is an excellent example of a man who knows how to style gloves with a suit. He never goes out in public unless his hands are covered. He always wears gloves with his suits. They are mainly black but his gloves represent him, his power, his simplicity and his sophistication.
Glove Style – What To Look Out For
- Silk Lined Leather Gloves – 100% real silk gloves feel smooth and comfortable. Cashmere Lined Leather Gloves are just as perfect a glove to own.
- Sheepskin Lined Leather Gloves – These are traditional men’s leather gloves and the nappa leather and lining is normally made from 100% pure sheepskin. Nice and toasty.
- Leather Driving Gloves – Designed to improve your driving comfort. Men’s driving gloves are ideal for autumn and winter driving, shielding your hands from the changes in temperature outside in the cold air and in-car heating.
- Wool gloves – Make sure they feel soft and are double wool lined to keep you warm. Materials from Scotland are the way forward.
Stick them in your top pocket, so you don’t lose them. Practical and stylish.
