Fits Like A Glove


Always a big fan of high meeting low, I’m loving the colorful leather gloves I’m noticing on certain chic and streetwise girls this winter. They add a nice but understated (i.e. cool) jolt of color to an otherwise monochromatic urban uniform. My favorite ones appear to be thin, butter-soft Italian leather – ladylike and classic design paired with punky color is what you’re after here. The thinness is key – even a hint of bulk will ruin this look and make it appear as if you have dressed for warmth rather than fashion. I found the photos above while looking through recent streetstyle photos on Stylesight. My favorites are probably the lipstick red ones paired with a faded denim jacket and a charcoal grey dress (shot recently by one of our London-based photographers), but the fingerless blue ones paired with a pearl bracelet are the best example of prep meeting punk.
