Hell For Leather

With the sudden drop in temperature I've been searching for a pair of leather gloves to keep my fingers warm on the chilly mornings. As much as I love my warm woolly mittens they're really not suitable for driving! 
I like the elegant ladylike touch leather gloves add to an outfit. In my quest to find my perfect pair these are some I've found on the high street 

Bow Leather Gloves - Oasis - £25


Frill Leather Gloves - Oasis - £25

I like the colourful bright purple pair from Accessorize as they're great for adding a splash of colour to your outfit. I also love the classic tan coloured gloves from Oasis. 

The leopard print gloves from Miss Selfridge instantly caught my eye as did the studded gloves from John Lewis, however they're a tad pricey and I'm sure I could find a cheaper pair of leather gloves and customise them myself with studs! I'm sure Gok Wan featured how to do so on a recent episode of his Clothes Roadshow: Get The Look For Less. 

Have you seen any nice leather gloves whilst out shopping?
Which are your favourite pair?



  1. I wanted a pair of leather gloves for 3 years now, maybe, this Christmas.
    If I have to choose, I think I would go with the Cream Driving Gloves, such a beautiful color.

  2. Leather gloves are my favorite, but DKNY just came out with a pair of cashmere gloves that are being sold as the perfect texting glove. So I had to buy those!

  5. Love the ones with leopard print trim!

  6. Accessories! My heart desires!!! I love your choices!! These are perfect to spruce up any look.

  7. I'm a sucker for animal print although I love the studded ones. Not sure I'd pay £55 for a pair of gloves though? I've never considered leather gloves before but after seeing this post, I definitely think I should invest in some!x

  8. Love the studded ones but flippin' heck at the price!x

  9. Hey hun, thanks for your comment on my blog, I am following you now : ) Would be great if you could follow me back xxx Love the purple gloves, the cream ones are lovely too, I really want some nice smart leather gloves too xoxo

  10. I've been wanting leather gloves forever but in the US, posh ones aren't really popular. It sucks. I am gonna be buying a pair for Christmas, for sure. And I want those bow ones and the cream driving gloves! the polka dot lining is so cute!

  11. I'm really a fan of the cream driving gloves - but to be honest, I'd go with black leather gloves just for the fact that they wouldnt get dirty as quick - and if you're paying alot of money for something planning to use it for a long time, its a good idea to make it classic and hard wearing :)

  12. I love gloves.. You can never have enough of them.. I especially love the animal prints one..

    Hugs! ~Angel

  13. I always love the look of leather gloves on other people, but really doubt I could carry them off! Really like those leopard print trimmed ones though- lovely! x

  14. I like your style, I think the best pair is the purple one!!
    Take a look at my blog, and if you like it follow me, I’ll be waiting for you!

  19. @Tereza Me too, the problem is I can never make my mind up as to which to buy! The cream gloves are a gorgeous colour. x

    @Bonnie Ooh the DKNY gloves sound great! x

    @Holli You should get them, it's getting so chilly outside! x

    @Becka I really like the animal print ones too. Aww glad you like them I think you should treat yourself to some too! x

    @Celia I know, I love them but they're way too pricey! Think if I do decide to have studded ones I'll be making my own! x

    @Charlotte No worries hun :) I do love the bright purple ones! x
