How To Wear Leather Gloves (And Not Look Like You're About To Rob A Bank)

Leather has certainly been everywhere as of late, and we like it. From jackets to vests and even pants, fashionable ladies are turning to this aggressive but elegant style for all of their tough-chic needs. Although we can appreciate the leather-clad biker thing, when it comes to cowhide, we think it looks best when warming up your hands. So, in light of the sudden cold weather, here’s how to don chic leather gloves in a non-criminal way.

Since black leather gloves can sometimes make you look like a creepy cab driver, we recommend that you choose a delicate looking pair in a lighter shade for a feminine feel. Next, slip on some flattering, skinny jeans in a seasonally dark wash and a comfy but sophisticated cowlneck sweater for a refined, winter look. To pull together the ensemble, we suggest a fitted velvet blazer and some gorgeous black booties to tuck your skinny pants into.
