A trend you can wear with anything is a trend worth investing in, if you ask me. For the past couple of seasons now, we've quietly been anticipating the rise of this sleeper trend, and thanks to the F/W 18 runways, gloves are finally a thing. Now, we aren't talking about your average gloves here. Gloves were presented on the runways this past season with the sole intention of serving up fashion—not function—an attribute we rarely associate with the winter accessory.
Before you roll your eyes at the idea of tulle, satin, elbow-length gloves gracing the contents of your fall wardrobe, we highly recommend you glance at how designers styled them on the runways. Whether you're headed to a black tie gala, the office, or you simply want to spice up your life with an unexpected accessory, gloves are your answer. Jeans and a T-shirt, floral dress and a checked coat—you name it—gloves are going to be the accessory trend that sets you apart this fall, so embrace it with hands wide open.
