Ask Belle: Stylish Gloves
Nov 13, 2014
I always forget to buy gloves until it’s so cold that I rush to CVS and buy some cheap pair of acrylic knit mittens that I throw away come spring. Not this year. Can you suggest a pair of stylish gloves that cost under-$50?
Just watch Lauren Bacall or Grace Kelly remove her gloves in a classic film, and it’s enough to make you long for the glamour of sating gloves. Luckily, once the weather turns chilly, we can all channel our inner leading lady with a pair of chic gloves. Here are a few of my favorites in leather and knit.
If you’re going to wear knit gloves, I recommend picking up an inexpensive pair of cashmere-blend or wool gloves. Their warm, stylish, and luxurious. I also like these Portolano cashmere gloves with a light ruffle and touch-point for smartphone use. I also love the chunky texture on these charcoal-grey gloves. Need black? LOFT has a pair of simple tech gloves that are worth a look.
Leather gloves can be very expensive, but stylish alternatives exist in the lower price points. These gloves from Sierra Trading Post are incredible. They’re insulated, and come in three gorgeous colors.
I also found these Vince Camuto gloves in a color-block of black and tan. Need touch-screen compatability? These Echo gloves mix leather and wool. And if you’re looking for something under-$25, try these gloves from H&M.
