Gloves for all seasons!

Posted on: September 12, 2010

How I wish that it snows in Singapore so that I have a valid excuse to put on gloves. However, I realised that there are ways in which we can confidently put them on for any occasion!

Fergie goes it elegantly and tastefully by matching  a pair of oyster colored leather gloves and a dress to give a smart casual look. It does not take a pair of Channel gloves to look like a star. You can always look for alternatives at places like M)phosis which is offering a black pair for $20 – $40. I am so tempted to get one for my Taiwan trip.

Even Michelle Obama have a thing for gloves… thanks to her image consultant. The gloves that matches the colour of your clothes would give the illusion of longer arms. It is so hard to find a green pair. I am green with envy.

Play with the texture. In this photo, a velvet pair. Accessories your gloves with a bracelet, ring or a watch! Winter is around the corner, gloves comes in cotton, silk, leather etc. My friend got a pair of UV -protection gloves ($35) from Japan. It is light, foldable and lacy. You can wear them in the heat! If you want one, try Takashimaya. They have almost everything that has UV protection. It is the worth the price in order to protect your beautiful arms from getting pigments. Useful to wear a pair while you are driving.

For the punk in you. Purchase a short pair that flaunts your nail polish or even get those with studs for the more adventurous you. 77 Street offer them. Shorter pair is also suitable for those with not so slim arms.

Selita Ebanks matches her long gloves with her heels. Gloves in any texture can add some delight to a plain evening gown. I am so getting a pair… in the right colour.
