Hollywood’s Favorite Accessory Fingerless Gloves

0 Comments 07 February 2011

OK, here are two awesome things: cashmere anything and fingerless gloves. So you can imagine what happens when you combine the two. Some people wonder why anyone would wear fingerless gloves, but for many situations, they make perfect sense. Versions of the fingerless glove are popular in sports like cycling, sailing, and weight lifting.

The great thing about fingerless gloves is that you get the tactile sensitivity you need for certain tasks (like texting) plus warmth and protection for the rest of the hand (because it’s either cold weather or overly air conditioned). We’ve seen gorgeous cashmere fingerless gloves by vkoo on stars like Emmy Rossum and Sarah Jessica Parker recently in New York. These beautiful fashion accessories are soft, warm, and practical.

The fingerless glove look started as a sort of edgy, rocker type accessory, first showing up on the mid-80s Madonna. However, in the intervening years, they’ve evolved into a more all-around downtown accessory that works with more looks now than ever. They’ve even been spotted on no less of a style star than Karl Lagerfeld, along with skinny black jeans!

In Rossum’s case, she paired the gloves with an equally luxurious loop scarf by vkoo. Parker paired hers with the “Marilyn” hat by Gerard Darel. Fingerless gloves and other yummy, warm accessories are great pick-me-ups for those cold winter days.
