Many people get caught up in the latest fashions and end up looking like everyone else. If you are looking for ways to create your own unique sense of personal style you have to look beyond the fashion magazines and common items found in the local malls. If you are hesitant to jump right in and change your style overnight you can start adding subtle differences to your wardrobe starting with accessories. Leather gloves can provide the ultimate fashion statement to help you begin to develop your own fashion forward look.
The Long Glove
Long gloves are an elegant throw back to the late 50’s and early 60’s. They were the finishing touch to elegant sleeveless cocktail dresses and gowns and are very Audrey Hepburn. They are elbow length and were often worn in silky, satiny materials but could also be found in other materials from velvets to lace and even leather and suede. They are the perfect way to add a polished look to your wardrobe especially in the fall when you are between seasons so to speak.
The Driving Glove
For a sporty look that is also slightly vintage, driving gloves will give you an edgy look that is kind of half rock, half practicality. The style of the gloves is the distinct tear drop cut out and the adjustable snap button feature that gives them a seductive look. They come just above the wrist so can be worn with longer sleeves comfortably.
The Fingerless Glove
Fingerless leather gloves have a paper boy feel from way back when. Fingerless gloves allowed street corner salesmen to sell their wares on the street from newspapers to chestnuts. The fingerless options allowed people to count money while keeping their hands warm. Leather fingerless gloves are edgy and a little bit fun and can be worn with leather jackets, sweaters and winter coats. When making a fashion statement you can wear them all day or all night long indoors or out.
The Buttoned or Laced Glove
You can also look at button down gloves with a Victorian feel and a higher cut well above the wrist. Leather gloves with sexy laces offer straps to tighten and loosen the gloves while offering a seductive detail that is reminiscent of a corset.
Gloves are a subtle fashion accessory that can be used to keep warm with style, or add an interesting detail to your outfit.
