Gloves are the next item on the list! Gloves add a little something extra to an outfit don’t you think? And perfect for adding a little color and keeping your fingers warm in the cold weathered months.
When one thinks of gloves they are drawn back to the times of the Opera, where women would wear long satin gloves to the shows where Hollywood glamor was just amazing and over the top! During that time there would not be a single photo of actresses without their gloves on! Gloves were a symbol of elegance and femininity! And were the thing of vogue mainstream in the 60s and the 70s but soon as the feminine movement came in women perceived gloves as “shackles” and constricting, with them soon dwindling away. And now if we see a women in a perfectly thought out outfit with gloves it is a wonderful moment because it is just lovely!
*FUN FACT* The First Opera worn gloves was in 1566 by Queen Elizabeth I.
- It is important that the gloves fit all the way to the fingers
- (Nina say’s that) wearing them with a three-quarter length jackets for a “safer” opinion
- if you are nervous of the long satin glove, go for an edgy leather driving glove, or maybe even finger-less…. a different effect then glamorous but Badass tough gal works great during this time period.
“you must have gloves or I won’t go. Gloves are more important than anything else.” ~ Meg in Little Women
