Trend Watch: Wedding Gloves

Although g gloves don’t get much attention these days, they used to be a symbol of class and wealth – a staple in a lady’s wardrobe. Today, not many brides opt to have gloves as part of their wedding attire but they are an elegant and unique way of adding a touch of personality to your outfit. Here are some options for wedding gloves:

Satin gloves are elegant and glamorous and will work perfectly with a full-length ball gown or a slinky evening gown made from satin or silk.  Whether you like your gloves to wrist-length or to go all the way up to your elbows, this is a great idea if you want to add a touch of glam to your bridal outfit.

For a vintage look, crochet gloves are the way to go. Unlike satin gloves, crochet ones are short to the wrist. While the style is not at all like satin gloves, crochet gloves are also sweet and feminine, and a definite retro vibe. Wear with a flared wedding dress with a shorter hemline – think a 50’s cut.

Lace is another bridal material for gloves. But what’s special is that they can be more decorative than the previous two styles. The delicate material is already very ornate, but add crystals, ribbons, rhinestones or pearls, and you’ll have one-of-a-kind gloves that will make a subtle difference in your wedding attire. Lace gloves can be wrist-length or elbow-length and goes best with simple, unelaborate dress.

Also called fingerless gloves, lace cuffs are very ornamental. They can either wrap around your palm or they can wrap around one of your fingers. Either way, this is a sexy and gorgeous accessory that will surely set your wedding attire apart.
