Gloves Gloves Gloves
Winter is here and what is best suited for the 6th of December than to talk about gloves.
Some say that gloves go back to prehistoric times. Anyway, from the 13th century onwards gloves were worn by ladies as a fashion accessory usually made of silk or linen. It was not until the 16th century however, that gloves really became popular, when Queen Elizabeth I started to wear them.
As you can see, gloves have a long history. Nowadays they’re usually worn in winter and made of thick wool or leather. My favorite pieces I’ve found on the web you can see here:
First there are the cosy ones:
Snow Queen Gloves by LoveAndKnit
Chunky String Mittens by Topshop
Faux Sheepskin Mittens by Topshop
Lowie Nordic Fair Isle Mittens by Urban Outfitters:
Then there are the “trendy” ones (not really made to protect you against the cold) 😉
Black Leather Strape Detail by Topshop again
And the gorgeous vintage ones:
All there’s left to say: Happy glove shopping! 🙂
