It’s that time of year again; summer is coming to an end and winter is just around the corner. Therefore, it’s time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe – coats, sweaters, cardigans – and of course, an often overlooked and forgotten accessory: a pair of quality gloves. Gloves both round off your wardrobe and keep your fingers protected from cold weather.
The great thing about (good) winter gloves is that they’re made to last, so investing in a quality pair is highly recommended. But, you do need to have a think about which situations you will be using them for. Are they for your daily commute to the office, outdoor adventures such as hiking, or winding down ski slopes (because then you’d probably need a pair of ski gloves)?
Anyone who lives in a colder climate will tell you that the first thing to go numb will be your fingers, so if you are anticipating sub-zero temperatures, insulation and moisture resistance are a must. Getting the right size is also key if you want to stay snug in your glove. Too tight and you’ll lose feeling in your hands – too big and the cold will slowly start to seep in.
Alternatively, if you’re in and around the city and need your hands to be free from time to time, you’ll probably want a thinner, more dextrous design that can be easily removed when scrambling for your phone or travel cards.
