The Best Gloves For Winter, Hands Down

Photographed by Eric Helgas.
The winter season is (almost) upon us. Not only have temperatures finally started to dip, Daylight Savings is in effect, and the days are decidedly shorter. Bummer, we know. But, the news isn't all bad — at least from a fashion perspective. Now is the perfect time to dig out those vital, cold-weather accessories from the nether regions of your closet. (Or perhaps it's time to invest in new ones.) After all, going outdoors glove-free is soon-to-be risky business.
While we're on the topic: Gloves are seemingly trivial add-on until you realize that, yes, hypothermia is a real thing. Nope, a wool coat and oversized scarf aren't going to keep your hands toasty, so we rounded up the best of the best — fingerless gloves, shearling-lined mittens, and more — to put the finishing touches on your out-the-door look.
We put our brains (and hands) together for the ultimate shadow-creature extravaganza — allowing you to view this season's trendiest gloves in an even more inspired light. An added treat? All of the styles featured are available to shop. Now, who's down for a quick game of animal charades?
