One of the wedding accessory trends we’re most excited about this year is gloves. They’ve never exactly disappeared from the bridal fashion scene, but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen brides playing them up, and we think they add the perfect extra “something” to big day attire—not to mention kind of being perfect for photos.
These wedding gloves are the classic. Simple and stylish, they’re an obvious hit with any dress that features 50s styling (think cocktail length or high boatneck), but can be worn just as well with something slinky and modern. Not bad for less than 20 dollars.
For rustic winter and spring weddings, we love these warm, long cable knit gloves, which not only fit a cozy cabin feel, but serve a practical purpose too (you can only handle frigid temperatures for so many photos).
Tartan has been a longtime favorite for winter weddings, but we love the idea of foregoing a sash or kilt for something more subtle, like these Hamilton Tartan Gloves, which have a serious “royalty in the countryside” vibe going for them.
It’s hard to beat BHLDN for looks-like-vintage pieces that are destined to get attention on your wedding day, and these tea-stained crocheted and beaded bridal gloves are no exception. Perfect for the bride who’s not afraid to really play up her accessories.
Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend Crystal Gloves by Moschino, $94.90 US
Last but not least, if you’re feeling a little cheeky, these statement gloves from Moschino are kind of perfect for the situation. I mean, we know he’s your best friend, but the rock is up there.
ONE FINAL NOTE ON WEDDING GLOVES
While we’re big fans of wedding gloves, it’s important to plan their timing because they will cover up your brand new wedding band. It’s easiest to skip them for the ceremony (or remove them after you walk down the aisle) and you’ll want to make sure to take them off for some of your staged photos.
