Gloves do not only keep your hands warm, they also add that certain something to every vintage outfit. Of course I don’t wear leather gloves in summer, but there are also some very light options. In this blog post I show you my ten favourite gloves, from vintage finds to reproductions in a lot of different shades.
1. White True Vintage Gloves for Spring and Summer
Those pretty 1950s vintage pieces remind me of a time, when women rarely leave the house without matching gloves and hat. I found them at a small vintage store in Munich and, of course, immediately bought them. I especially like the little bows ond them. Those gloves match with a lot of my retro outfits as you can see here and here.
2. Light pink vintage Gloves
3. Crocheted Gloves by Vecona Vintage
4. Nylon Gloves by Secrets in Lace
White gloves not only suit brides, they also look pretty on everyone else. Wonderful examples are this and this outfit. You can shop them here if you like. The gloves are also available in black. Those are real allrounders since they match with almost every vintage outfit I own, as you can see here, here, and here. PS: Since the gloves are sheer they look wonderful with a perfect manicure.
5. Elegant, long Glovs by Secrets in Lace
Are you ready for a lot of glamour? Those long nylon gloves by Secrets in Lace are definitely not for every day but they look simply amazing with elegant evening gowns. You can buy those gorgeous pieces here.
6. Light Pink Gloves
7. Black vintage leather Gloves
As soon as it gets colder outside I take out my favourite black vintage gloves. They look gorgeous with winter or fall outfits. I wore them in combination with a grey shift dress as well as a skirt-sweater-combo. You can shop similar ones here.
8. Long black suede Gloves
9. White vintage gloves with black Details
Sometimes you have to take out your light coloured gloves on those grey fall and winter days. This is the time when I wear my black and white vintage pieces. They look wonderful with three-quarter sleeves for example.
10. Beige vintage leather gloves
Especially black gloves don’t go very well with warm earth tones, most of the time. So I decided to invest in beige vintage pieces, which I already showed you in this blog post. A very similar one is available here.
It is said that hands reveal ones true age, now matter how wrinkle-free the face looks. So why not protecting them from UV rays with pretty gloves? Happy shopping!
