Velvet Gloves

Retrun To Fashion Articles

Gloves are delicate items that can make any woman's wardrobe look that much more feminine and beautiful. While there are typically rules about wearing satin gloves outside of formal attire (a no-no, as a rule), velvet gloves enjoy a little more freedom because of their material and recent trends in fashion.

Typically, velvet gloves can be any length, from one-button to sixteen-button, or opera length. They were very popular in the 19th century with formal ballroom attire, such as with Scarlett O'Hara's outfits in "Gone With the Wind." Even though it's well over 100 years later, velvet gloves remain a great choice to wear with gowns of today. One-button velvet gloves, however, can be both very formal and very sporty, depending on the setting and the rest of the outfit you're wearing.

Velvet gloves can be worn a little more casually, but can still be dressed up and worn with evening wear and even wedding gowns. Designers are currently pairing velvet with denim as well as satins and silks. It's all about mixing it up for the seasons this year and pairing standards with new materials and patterns, so feel free to grab a pair of velvet short gloves from and go wild!
