HANDS IN GLOVES
The Perfect Match for Three-Quarter-Sleeve Coats
(January 29, 2008)
Gloves are becoming a hot item now that winter is in full swing. Leather gloves, knit mittens, gloves made from velour, jersey, and satin material, and gloves with fur trim are among the hand-wear designs finding increasing favor as an accompaniment to winter outfits.
Long Gloves for Ordinary Occasions
Fashion-conscious "gals" in their teens and other young women who favor a casual look are creating outfits that feature sleeveless knit tops matched with long knit gloves, matching scarves and gloves, and other sets with gloves. By coordinating gloves with another item, they are able to heighten the overall effect of the look. Long gloves in bright colors, such as pink and yellow, are especially popular. Some young women wear different colored gloves on their left and right hands, layer their gloves, or wear rings or bangles over their hand wear for a unique look. A wide range of designs is available, including gloves with needlework that give a handcrafted look and gloves with sporty border patterns. Gloves are becoming a fashion statement all of their own.
A Useful Accessory
There is little doubt, though, that the popularity of gloves this year has just as much to do with fashion as it does with warmth.
