Did you know that leather gloves need to be dry-cleaned on a regular basis to keep them in fine condition? I only bring mine in once or twice a year, but I do air them out in between wearings.
I've been wearing my light apricot gloves, pictured above, on evenings out with a black dress and coat. I like the contrast with black, and the pairing of the gloves with my Wolff et Descourtis scarf. The gloves are so delicate in colour that I don't like to wear them for long periods of time. That's right, I'm handling my gloves "with kid gloves".
During the Christmas season I was wearing my red gloves quite a bit, just for some festive cheer.

My everyday gloves these days are a pair of dark green leather gloves from J.Crew. They are lined in cashmere yet not quite warm enough for a cold snap, I find my fingers freezing when I'm out walking.

All of my gloves are from J.Crew, I bought them on sale for about $40 a pair, a really great price for the quality. They are now sold out which is not a surprise, especially considering Michelle Obama wore a pair in a lovely shade of plum at the Inauguration last week.
What colour gloves are you wearing these days? Do you rotate between a couple of pairs? Do you have a pair of gloves that you also handle "with kid gloves"?
