The Best Gloves For Winter, Hands Down

The Best Gloves For Winter, Hands Down

By now your go-to winter coats and puffer jackets are probably hanging over that chair you throw your most-worn items on. We can envision the row of boots lining up by the door, too. We understand. The days are shorter and colder, and everyone is attempting to stay warm at all costs. That’s why it’s the perfect time to invest in some new cold-weather accessories like winter gloves. After all, going outdoors glove-free is risky business — if you haven’t already felt the icy coldness against your hands.

Gloves might seem like trivial add-ons until you’re outside in frigid temps for more than a few minutes. And, no we’re not talking about those trendy opera gloves that exude main character vibe with their glitter and studs. We’re talking about the best gloves — insulated options, sleek yet warm leather gloves, cozy cashmere styles, and more — that’ll keep you toasty and put the finishing touch on your out-the-door look.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Leather Winter Gloves

If you don’t like chunky-knit gloves, keep your fingers warm with a pair of chic leather ones. The sleek accessory remains flexible at low temperatures — unlike puffier mittens — whether you need to use your phone or get a card out of your wallet.
