Did you think lace mittens could only be truly embraced by the fiercest of rock chicks? Think again - they're the key to your party look this season.
We're not talking the complete leather, fishnets and biker boots look….this is letting lace gloves propel your outfit into a sharp and subtle blend of chicness and femininity. This will endow your evening encounters with a certain je ne sais quoi…there's a reason why the Victorians were such fans.
Black lace gloves, both romantic and timeless, but also edgy and mysterious, make all the difference between looking ´very elegant´ versus a ´knockout´ party look. What´s more, they´re also inherently practical - with lace mittens you won't have to bear your paws in the bitter cold at the end of the night to dial your taxi...or indeed to exchange numbers with Mr Darcy.
The key is to let the lace mittens to do all the hard work and allow them to be the show-stealer. Combine the lace with a with a sharp bomber jacket and a fresh looking off the knee length skirt to give the outfit both a feminine and contemporary feel. We favour these elegant ankle boots from Aldo over more embellished high heels, to keep the outfit from being too dressy. Choose calm and modern accessories to offset the lace. We love these minimalist gold earrings from Chinese designer yindesign.com, Marc Jacob's chic shades of nude lipstick and the CJ Tatiana purse to complete the outfit.
Fun 'n' flirty, yet sharp, lace mittens are the essential glamour you need to nail the winter party look!
