"Adding gloves to an outfit is an easy way to give it a different look and be more stylish."
Fashion inspiration can be found anywhere —and the hottest accessory trend happened to coincide with the launch of Bridgerton’s latest season. And just like that, silk evening gloves are dolling up the arms of modern-day-royalty all around social media, red carpets and even the runways .
While you may have noticed an influx on the amount of evening gloves on your Instagram feed and TikTok for you page lately, the trend comes a long way – the 17th century. Since then, everyone from Queen Mary to Marilyn Monroe has used an evening glove for one event or another. The famous evening gloves usually go for the “opera glove” length (over the elbow), so the terms have become interchangeable.
However, gloves have had only minor fashion resurgences in pop culture over the last few years so it is exciting to see the elegant style finally reemerge among the fashion pack now.
Also, even though there is a lot of luxury affiliated with evening gloves, they are actually a relatively affordable accessory to try, and adding gloves to an outfit is an easy way to give it a different look and be more stylish. Also, if you want to be boold and take the look a step further, play up your gloves with chuncky rings or bracelets.
