As busy girls, we’re constantly texting, e-mailing, using our sometimes-manicured fingers for pretty much everything. But when cold weather hits, the bulky mittens and static-cling gloves can slow us down. Thanks to fingerless gloves, our digits can do their thing. And forget the hobo stereotype, we’re about to tell you how to rock this trend without looking like you live in a cardboard box:
Start off with a basic, cozy pair of fingerless gloves, like these MICHAEL Michael Kors Fingerless Knit Driving Gloves ($48). A cute accessory – say, this ABS Allen Schwartz Chain Link Bracelet ($129) and this Mixed Plaid Scarf ($15, down from $28) – add pretty, yet professional touches to this potentially grungy trend. Finish it off with a warm jacket, such as this Betsey Johnson Heart Button Peacoat ($170, down from $300), and you’ll be ready to text as well as stay warm.
Believe it or not, you can pull off Rihanna’s rocker look, thanks to these Juicy Couture Embellished Fingerless Gloves ($45). Continue with a classic leather jacket – we love Old Navy’s verison ($175) and a pair of feminine yet edgy earrings like these Kate Spade Candy Ribbon Hoops ($79). Throw on a pair of Volcom Sienna Skinny Jeans ($51) and watch Ke$ha envy your outfit.
