A pair of gloves is the winter accessories that keep your hands warm and give your outfit a stylish look. When selecting your gloves, you should keep in mind the garments and the accessories you want to wear. Keep a sense of harmony with all the elements of your outfit, blending both the practical and visually appealing purpose.
A pair of gloves should snug your hands and fingers, giving mobility to stretch your fingers.
The secret to a perfect fit is to find the right size.
The most useful technique to find the perfect size is to measure the palm’s widest part without including the thumb. You should measure the hand that you use the most: right hand if you are right-handed or left hand if you are left-handed. So, the width of your widest part of your hand indicates the size of the gloves.
However, if you have long fingers and small hands like I do, you may have difficulties finding gloves that fit perfectly. When it comes to size, the material of the gloves plays an important role. Look for a pair of gloves that have a little bit of stretch, and you may be able to find the size that fits well, avoiding the excess of material at the end of the fingers. Also, you may take into consideration the length of the nails when buying gloves. If you usually keep your nails long, you need to look for more extended finger length gloves.
An elegant woman should know how to wear a pair of gloves and how to put them on and take them off the right way.
Use your other hand, pick up the glove by the folded edge, slip your hand inside, pull the glove on, and smoother down your fingers. And repeat the same gesture for the other hand.
Remove your gloves gently by pulling the top of each finger to help you slide the gloves off the hand with ease. If the gloves are forearm length, then you may consider folding down the edge of the gloves first and after pulling the top of the fingers.
A lady who wears gloves should also know the proper etiquette on when to keep and take the gloves off.
As a rule of thumb, gloves should be worn rather than carried around, and they must complement your outfit and not compete with it.
