1. The Gloves
• A hands-down essential, a pair of leather gloves is a finishing touch that pulls any winter-warrior look together. For maximum warmth, choose styles that are lined. Options include polyester at the low end of the spending spectrum ($30) and wool or cashmere at the top ($100+). If you can’t stand chilly wrists, pick styles with extended knit cuffs to effectively trap in heat.
• For a modern outerwear outfit, avoid matching your winter accessories and instead aim for a mix of tones and textures. Since gloves are a detail that’s small in scale, taking up less real estate than a face-framing scarf, feel free to experiment with bold colours, textures like quilting and hardware like grommets.
• The leather used to make gloves is a delicate material that needs a little TLC. It’s best to keep leather gloves dry and stored away from heat. Always allow leather gloves to air-dry at room temperature, and spot-clean them with saddle soap if needed.
