I was online this morning searching out gloves to pair up with some of my gowns for a photo shoot. Once I ran across these awesome images I just had to do something on glove chic. Especially at this time of year when weddings get a little more formal and gloves help warm up hands and arms. Whether crocheted shorties or long, opera length lending that aspect of drama—gloves are glamorous and really tie a bridal look together. Luckily there are no rules anymore about what sort of gloves you have to wear with your gown. You can go with the classic white and ivory or jazz up your look with any length, color, texture, even pattern as you can see below. Just as some brides are showing some pizazz wearing different color shoes with their gown, glove color is an option you have as well. Go ahead, be adventuresome!

Shorties are those very lady-like gloves everyone wore to church in the 1950s. Mostly paired with daytime attire, they could go from afternoon formals into the early evening. These days they actually look chic with all styles--sheaths, A-lines and ball gowns. The model above is wearing a Dior-style ballerina length party dress with shorties, ditto the ladies in the Simplicity pattern rendering.

Both the long and short one are beautiful. Love the brown leather.
