When you think of gloves, you’re probably leaning towards wooly and warm or sterile and surgical – but they’re so much more than that.
Most of what’s considered fashionable at the moment are essentially reworked pieces from the past, with some vintage-inspired trends (’70s revival, for example) wowing and others (Y2K visible thongs, please don’t make us relive that era) falling flat.
With formalwear on the agenda for the festive season, one of these retro staples has emerged; gloves for evening looks.
Cocktail gloves, opera gloves, evening gloves. Whatever you want to call them, they’re all over our Instagram feeds, and on celebs like Lady Gaga (at the House of Gucci premiere no less), Rihanna, Margot Robbie, and Lizzo.
The high street has followed suit, and there are plenty of options on the UK high street. We’ve rounded up our favourite ‘out out’ gloves, so you can serve up Hollywood glamour at your next function.
