12 Winter Gloves To Keep Your Mitts Cozy

12 Winter Gloves To Keep Your Mitts Cozy | Fashion | Scoop.it
If you’re anything like us, you spend all year long dreaming of the first snowfall. Then it happens — and you spend the rest of the winter dreaming of a tropical getaway. Not so magical, after all.

 

Baby, it's starting to get COLD outside. So what should be your go-to accessory when temperatures drop below freezing? Well, Refinery29 has got your back on that one, with a slideshow of 12 of the most fashionable (and warm!) winter gloves to keep your mitts cozy.

 

The first gloves come from All Saints, and might actually be my favorite of the whole group. $95 isn't a bad price for black leather gloves with burgundy fur trim-- plus, that fur trim stuff is definitely on trend right now! 

 

Kate Spade's Pow Pow Mittens are also a big favorite, with their bright colors and cheeky call-outs. Though I usually don't go for the mitten, since it keeps my fingers from use, I actually think these are really adorable, and would be worth overlooking the finger factor. 

 

Madewell's dotted gloves are a little simpler, yet still go a long way for warmth-- plus they've got that convenient pointer finger hole when you need to slip the tip of your finger out to use your smartphone. The colors are nice too, with the soft gray creating a sweet contrast to the red polkadots. 

 

Finally, if you're looking for something more on the stylish side, Rag & Bone has you covered with their quilted leather driving gloves, complete with rose bush pattern. Though these gloves aren't my favorite, I can definitelty see how they would appeal to a more fashionable woman, who is more interested in completing her outfit than keeping her fingers warm. There's a pair of gloves in here for everyone, no matter what winter weather you live in!

5 Ways To Wear Velvet This Holiday Season : Dressed

5 Ways To Wear Velvet This Holiday Season : Dressed | Fashion | Scoop.it
Although velvet may remind of us of the gymnastics leotards and Halloween costumes of childhood, the comfy-chic fabric has made quite the comeback. Not only does it instantly pull together any outfit with a luxurious twist, but it gives winter...

 

Oftentimes there are fabrics that are difficult to style, especially if you don't have a stylist by your side telling you what to pair it with. Velvet is a great example-- the soft, plush material often brings with it flashbacks of halloween or bad figure skating costumes. But Glamour is here to dispell that notion-- and show us five awesome ways to wear velvet this holiday season!

 

The first example is a blazer. I really love the deep navy blue color of the blazer they chose, but I also like the sensibility and practicality of a piece like a blazer. As they put it, it "might be the easiest way to test-drive the velvet trend." You can wear it to the office or out to drinks, with anything from pants to skirts. 

 

The next option, velvet shorts, is slightly more difficult to pull off, but still awesome when done right. Though the photo of Nicole RIchie shows a lot of patterns mixed together, the velvet shorts and black tights combo is definitely doable.

 

Velvet pants are another stylish option, especially in that wine color Rosie Huntington-Whitely is rocking in the photo. When looking at velvet pants, they look best with a flare down the pant, and pair nicely with pumps or heeled booties.

 

One of the most difficult ways to pull off velvet is the suit. Though I really love the way Elizabeth Olsen wears hers, I have to admit this isn't as universally wearable as some of the other options. However, if you have (or find) a great velvet suit this season, don't be afraid to rock it!

 

The last option is a short velvet dress. This is always a nice go-to, since you can just throw it on and go. Velvet sweetens up a dress, while also adding a level of sophistication. The outfit they show is particularly adorable, though any velvet dress can look cute if paired with the right shoes and bag.
