It's only a matter of time before gloves gain in popularity and become the next scarf — an accessory you can actually wear with everything from jeans to a dress.
Up until the 1960s, gloves and even glam elbow-length gloves were a required fashion staple for women, one that had an etiquette all their own. Understandably, they got pushed to the side at some point and were seen as being a little too stuffy for free love, but that kind of thinking doesn't do them justice.
In addition to hiding a number of flaws, like an imperfect manicure, and protecting our hands from aging elements like UV rays and unforgiving winter winds, gloves can look freaking cool — if you think outside the box and are open to experimenting with them. These six ideas give us a glimpse into how creative you can get with a pair of gloves.

There's no rule that says you have to wear your gloves one specific way. A fresh idea for how you can differentiate between an outdoor and indoor look is by folding over the tops of your leather gloves and pairing them with a three-quarter length sleeve top in the same color. The objective is to look as if you planned your outfit with your gloves in mind.
These pretty leather gloves — gloves or handcuffs? — are by Lina Sych and feature cool pockets where you can stash your cash and cards. They'll make you feel like a secret agent (and they come in purple).
Never think your gloves have to be just cotton or silk to make the cut. An interesting fabric or and embellishment — even latex — makes a big statement. You can also choose bracelets to wrap around your basic gloves, which really shines a spotlight on the accessory.
You may feel like you're wearing a costume rocking elbow-length gloves with a formal gown, but the style looks a lot less precious when paired with a poncho and oversized watch. Cut out the fingers for maximum modern flair.
All of these gorgeous shades of gray-pink-taupe (right down to the blogger's nail polish) bring her elbow-length gloves into the future. These pretty Ayla Gloves are made in Vancouver from bamboo, which is a sustainable resource, so you can feel good about your purchase.
The trick to pulling off little white gloves is to pair them with an outfit that makes sense — like this lace dress — but keeping your other accessories a bit tougher and rougher around the edges. Think Jackie Onassis, but with an edge.
