Yes, You Can Keep Your Hands Warm and Still Look Chic

Take a leaf out of Beyoncé's book.

Last Updated on November 2, 2021

If you’ve been left with the dilemma of choosing whether to look stylish or stay comfortable in winter, I have the answer for you: leather gloves.

Styling for winter is both exciting and challenging. You want to stay warm but not look like a bundle of clothes.

Of course, jackets and other outerwear are no question — they’re essentials, to say the least. 

But if you really want to up your look a notch, leather gloves are what you need. They’re not only practical but they’re almost the only pair of gloves that look incredibly stylish too.

Think Emma Stone’s version of Cruella de Ville and Beyonce at the 2021 Grammys and on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s Icon issue.

It’s no secret that they can cost a pretty penny though, and you can definitely see buying them as something similar to investing in a leather bag.

They make for good investments though, because they’re timeless and can be worn for years to come.

If you don’t want to splurge, the good news is you can still find pairs that are just as good but won’t burn a hole in your pocket. 

Over on the high street, we have options from COS, Mango, Zara and more. These come in a variety of styles, from short with pronounced seams to those with knitted cuffs.

They also come in many different colours — yes, not just black. Aside from rich browns, this year’s glove selection is peppered with brights like orange. 

There are lots to choose from, and it can be a bit overwhelming.

So I listed down the pairs on my wishlist! Here are the best leather gloves you may want to treat your hands to this winter.
