I am back in DC. Phew. But it's starting to get a little cooler than it was before the holiday, and then I realized, Wow, it's almost December!
December means it's time for the full she-bang. Hats, scarves, mittens, the works. Right now, I wear my favorite, grey, American Eagle mittens that I received as a gift in high schools and still love (they have the flaps that fold back so I can text easily! I can't deny innovation). But I need to grow up and style up. I'm very into the sleek winter look of a coat with leather or suede gloves. It seems very city chic, and it's a lot more age-appropriate than my mittens.
I've got long fingers, so it's a bit hard to find gloves that fit comfortably. I'll keep you posted on if I can find some well-fitting ones. Meanwhile, here are some of gloves I've been eyeing online:
A hard, rocker look from J. Crew:
|J. Crew zip leather gloves: $98|
A more ladylike suede (still with an edge) in a fabulous shade:
|H&M suede gloves, available in stores|
A shot of color, for those of us who abide by basic black coats:
|Kate Spade broome street bow gloves: $125|
A non-black neutral with a dash of bling:
|3.1 Phillip Lim Arbus leather gloves, available at Farfetch: $295|
A little bit of luxurious shearling to keep your delicate wrists warm:
|UGG Australia leather glove, available at Bloomingdales: $145|
A little bit of lumberjack flare, with extra length for us long-armed ladies:
|Lands' End women's leather top gloves: $49.50|
How will you stay warm this December?
