Embellishments add touch of whimsy to gloves

Fashion FYI: Holiday                                                Fashion FYI: Holiday  By JoAnne Klimovich Harrop Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, 8:55 p.m. With winter’s chill settling in, gloves are a must. Why not add a bit of sparkle to your cold-weather look? “We have so many gloves with unexpected details, especially leather gloves with studs, mini-sequins or zippers, some that are decorations while others are functional,” says Gregg Andrews, Nordstrom fashion director. “Some have a vintage look to them and are a wonderful accessory.” Gloves are necessary for warmth, but having a pair with some jewels or other embellishments adds a bit of fun, Andrews says. “Women love embellishment because it’s instant love the minute you see the shine,” says Kimberly Coppola, who owns Downtown’s accessories store Serendipity with her husband, Peter. “There is just an attraction to it. And it feels good when you look at something that’s sparkly. “Sparkles add liveliness and energy to your outfit” she says. “Life is short, so why not sparkle? I love sparkles with everything from jeans and a casual look to a holiday dress for that special night out. They are instant festiveness.” Women often have many pairs of gloves to wear with different coats, but as Andrews says, a woman can “always use another pair.” “Gloves with embellishments can add interest to a coat,” Andrews says. “They can complete the outerwear look. If they have some type of detail, people will notice them. People notice hands more because we spend so much time on our smartphones.” Some gloves have special textures on the fingertips so they don’t have to be removed when texting, checking email or answering a call. Many of the sparkly gloves at Serendipity have the touch fingers that let you operate a touchscreen without having to remove them. “We are constantly on our phones, so gloves that allow us to wear them while we check our mail or text are great — and if they have some bling, that’s an extra bonus,” Kimberly Coppola says. Gloves can protect your hands from harsh weather and look fashionable at the same time. Regina Gardiner, senior accessories editor at People StyleWatch, agrees. “People can get stuck in a fashion rut in the middle of winter,” she says. “When it’s freezing, it becomes more about keeping warm than being stylish. Embellishments on gloves can add a little flair to the monotony of cold-weather dressing.” Andrews suggests breaking away from black gloves and choosing color. It’s an opportunity to show off your individuality without being too overpowering. Gardiner advises trying a fun hue, such as red, to give a splash of color to winter neutrals. “We need gloves for function, but they also can be an easy way to update your winter outerwear,” says Adam Moon, women’s fashion director at J.C. Penney. “You have to have gloves every season if you live in a cold climate,” he says. “Having some that sparkle and shine gives a woman a fun accessory that is also functional. They can bring a smile to her face on a cold, winter day.” It’s also a way to give the sparkle trend a try. Gloves can be found with all-out bling or with just a touch of sparkle. These gloves make great gifts and might not necessarily be something you would buy for yourself, Moon says. Something as intricate as a stitched treatment is on trend in these styles of gloves. Even a hint of sequins adds pizzazz to a gray day. “The cold weather is settling in, and we need to stay warm,” Coppola says. “There are so many choices in fun gloves. They are the perfect ensemble to a solid-color coat.” JoAnne Klimovich Harrop is a staff writer for Trib Total Media. She can be reached at or 412-320-7889.
