Fall 2016 Accessory Trend: Talk to the Glove

fall 2016 trend gloves
Max MaraMarc Jacobs | Chanel | Rodarte


Do you think of gloves as something your grandmother wore? I can tell you that as a mom, having the time to put on even basic gloves sometimes seem like a luxury! I urge you to use this trend to add a little fun, color and or sparkle into your life/wardrobe. While we were dating, Mr. Real Life Style bought me a pair of gold gloves I’d been coveting. That was 7 years ago and every time I pull them out I’m amazed at the compliments I receive and how “sparkly” they make me feel. Repeatedly hearing friends, coworkers, and complete strangers tell you they love what you’re wearing will surely brighten anyone’s day!

And remember, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The outfits below show how adding a colored or patterned glove to a basic black outfit transforms the look completely.

Have fun!
