Long Gloves: A Fashion Necessity

Updated on January 18, 2010

Who says that prom is the only time to buy long gloves? Not the people who get it! You don't have to wear long gloves as prom gloves or as opera gloves only. You can get them for other occasions as well. It doesn't even have to be an occasion, per se. You can wear them during the winter so that they double as both a fashion accessory and as a useful article of clothing.

Long gloves remind people of a bygone era, a time in the 1930's and 1940's where women were classy, and really knew how to dress well. They bring the aura of a dark nightclub somewhere in New York City, with jazz music softly playing.

Of course, you don't have to be a movie starlet from the 40's to sport long gloves in a fashionable way. So what do they go with? For starters, dresses will go well with long black gloves, or long white gloves, whichever matches better. If you are feeling a bit more daring, then you can buy a pair of long red gloves, and make everyone wonder why they didn't have the same idea!

Wool long gloves will look very cute when paired with a toboggan cap in the winter time. Along the same lines, if you purchase fingerless long gloves, they will go well with any sort of sweater that you find in your house. They will also go great with scarves, especially if they are of similar colors and fabric styles.

So where can you get great gloves like these? You can always go to your local mall, but in my opinion, there is a much easier option. Just buy them on the internet! Sure, you can drive down to the mall to buy them, and many people do. There is nothing wrong with that. But you can also have them shipped to your house. Do your own research, see what interests you, and above all, have fun!

When buying long gloves, or any kind of gloves (even latex gloves!), make sure that you only by something if it interests you. Many people will buy fashion accessories based on what others are doing. While that is fine for finding out what is popular, I would recommend that you develop your own style. If that style doesn't include long satin gloves, then don't include them, especially because of a hub! But if this is the sort of thing that would interest you, then I certainly hope that you find something that you like. You do not have to be a trendsetter like Audrey Hepburn, but you can still choose to look good.

A few tips for those that decide to buy long gloves:

  • Make sure they match the rest of your outfit.
  • Long gloves can be hot, and so can you!
  • Always check the quality of the gloves if you can. You do not want to buy any gloves where the thread is loose or the fabric runs.

I hope that this helps you if you decide that long gloves are right for you. Thanks for reading!
