The coats are out, the hats are on and the scarves wrapped around our cold necks, it truly is the middle of Autumn! My local fair has visited town, the University firework display has been and yet for some reason this year I was totally unprepared for the occasions with my fingerwear! I had my lovely AllSaints coat, warm boots and a scarf but no gloves.... all the ones I'd previously worn hadn't been a good investment and looked tatty or out of style. So, I made it my mission to hunt down gloves that would last...
|p.s that's meant to be a heart of gloves ;)|
I'd seen so many varieties of gloves out on the highstreet, but could never find a good pair that would keep my pinkies warm and be well made enough to last. I decided to look at the three types of styles I've decided to invest in and why.... leather gloves, mittens and woollen ones.
Classic leather glovesFor an evening meal or for any dressed up occasions, I always believe having a pair of well made leather gloves is top of the list. I usually would suggest in a classic black but i'm loving brown vintage inspired ones this season, these gloves look great and more importantly keep your hands warm. The only downside I'd say with keeping this as your only pair... they may look lovely but if it's baltic outside then your fingers may well freeze! This gorgeous pair are vintage - bit of a bargain and do what they say on the tin.... plus leather gloves tend to look extremely elegant and quite glamourous.
