Leather gloves are a luxe touch to any outfit come winter time. The main debate this season is whether to wear them long or short. Here are some ideas for how to wear leather gloves and where to shop for them.

Long leather glooves

Give above the elbow gloves the exposure they deserve with cap sleeves. Alternatively, wear with bracelet sleeve coats or as occasion wear in winter. Bottega Veneta offsets a long leather style with a polished skirt suit.

Splash out on a pair of leather gloves by Irish designer Paula Rowan who has dressed Helen Mirren in gloves for the red carpet .

Alternatively, Marks and Spencers do real long leather gloves too – they come an of -the-moment burgundy hue, as well in ruched black and are lined for that extra warmth factor (€95 /£69.99).

Short leather gloves

For a more casual take, push up the sleeves of a puffa jacket (a key coat trend for this season would you believe) to show a short studded pair such as these at Burberry Prosum.

Get the Burberry look with these studded (faux) leather gloves from River Island – they come in either gold or silver studs to suit the other metals in your jewellery box (€40/ £30).

So its long leather gloves for occasion wear and short and funky for everyday wear we think. What about  you, will you be wearing leather gloves this winter?
