The pair of convertible fingerless gloves/mittens I bought late in the fall has become completely indispensable. Because it has always been annoying to take off your glove to rifle around your bag and find a lip gloss. Why these did not explode in popularity until now, I have no idea.
These cashmere gloves ($31) are the no-frills version, in a pretty Kelly green.
Convertible gloves ($12) are my personal favorite, because they offer the option of protecting fingers2009-01-26 from the lately ridiculous cold when you don’t need to use your hands.
Portolano takes the fingerless thing a step farther with these gloves ($11, were $55), which free up the entire top part of your hand.
Wear these long gloves ($24, were $48) with ¾ coats, or scrunch them down a bit for extra warmth with your regular jacket.
The military-esque detail on this pair ($15) lends a bit more style.
