Omiru Poll Result: No to Elbow Length Gloves

Long Fingerless Cashmere GlovesWe asked: Would you wear Elbow Length Gloves?

You said:  No to Elbow Length Gloves.  Only 46% of you said that you would wear them.

Style tip? Sure, elbow length gloves aren’t the most practical accessory in the world
.  Traditionally, they’re worn as a sophisticated accessory to an evening gown.  But elbow length gloves don’t have to be reserved for formal occasions.  You can make elbow length gloves a part of an everyday daytime outfit.  Just try a less stuffy version of the gloves in a knit fabric.  Bonus style points for choosing a bright color. 

Next question: We’ve been raving about Buffalo Check Plaid patterns.  But what do you think?   Tell us, would you wear Buffalo Check Plaid?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I’d wear them because my wrists are usually cold. Most gloves don’t cover enough of my wrist, or they bunch up at the wrist, or they wrist area is too loose to keep me warm. Coverage from fingertip to elbow sounds cozy.

    I’m looking for a practical light weight fingerless elbow or shoulder length gloves to protect my forearms from scraps. The skin on my forearms is extremely thin and damaged from years of sun exposures. It actually peels or bleeds at the slightest abrasion or rub.

    Thank you.

    Mimi – I love these too. I live in CA, but I still get cold! Thinking of buying a pair to leave at work too…I sit under an AC vent, and it’s like winter, even during summer.

    Judy – You’re welcome! The soft cashmere will protect and comfort your skin.

    If you live anywhere that gets cold, why WOULDN’T you wear long gloves? It’s mostly what I buy, if and when I can find them. Which means there might be more of us who like them than this study revealed. I’ve got 3/4 to almost-to the wrist sleeves on quite a few of my winter things. Long gloves, punched down towards the wrist, fill up that drafty coat sleeve. A lot of people think you have to wear these gloves all the way up. You don’t. Punched them down looks good too. Thus, my elbow lengths sometimes become 8 or 10 buttons and my opera gloves become elbow length.
