Every year, frigid temperatures appear faster than we’d like. Luckily, designers have found ways to banish the winter blues by creating stylish and warm pieces such as winter gloves. Featuring utilitarian details, vivid hues, and chunky, soft knits, this season’s gloves from designers such as Prada, Rick Owens, and Saint Laurent are more pervasive than ever. Just as people are leaning into their fabulous sock collections, mitts are also having a high-fashion moment.
When deciding which gloves to purchase, it’s essential to consider how you’ll use them. Fine cashmere gloves won’t cut it in high altitudes, and bulky ski gloves probably aren’t necessary for a weekend stroll with friends. But regardless of whether they show off the classic zig-zag print by Missoni or tell a neutral-hued color story, there’s nothing like a pair of gloves to make any outfit more eye-catching.
Read ahead because we’ve rounded up the 19 best designer winter gloves to prove you don’t need to avoid practical attire to stay warm and on-trend. Your hands will thank you.
