Gloves may seem like an unusual choice of accessory for women like us who live in the tropics but you'd be surprised at how functional they are and how they can instantly make a dressy ensemble seem even more elegant.
The dainty accessory used to be big back in the '60s when wearing them was considered a fashion staple, especially for more formal events. Fast forward to today, gloves may seem more like an after-thought to an ensemble or just another must-have during the cold season, which is why wearing them as an accessory is statement-making. But how can you pull off this tricky fashion piece without looking overdone? Here are five stylish ideas to try.
Pair them with a poncho
Do you work in a chilly office? No problem. A poncho and a glove can be your best and most stylish friends for this. Make sure to choose a poncho with a more neutral colour such as grey or black and then choose a glove of the same shade (leather will work here). This combo will go well with an office attire and make your corporate suit instantly feel like a power wardrobe.
Choose an overall shade for your ensemble
Pick a neutral pair of gloves and pair it with colours of the same family. Think of it as an extension of your monochromatic look.
