You don’t have to be royalty to wear long gloves. You don’t even have to be in formal-wear.

Burlesque dancers use a sultry glove removal to tease their audiences and you can too. Yet elbow-length gloves are also a great way to add demure glamour to your style.

Whether you’re out and about on a blustery day or attending an evening event, elbow-length gloves suit every shape and size. Lets take a look at who wore it best and then you can try it for yourself. Yes you!

Angelina Jolie looked amazingly chic when she showed off some suede elbow-length gloves in The Tourist. She has also modeled leather gloves and rocked a long pair on the red carpet.

She paired these amazing arm warmers with neutral tones and a matching clutch bag. The statement empire line in a rich salmon colour, finishes the look perfectly. This outfit would wow anywhere in the world on an Autumn day.

Another lover of long gloves is Kim Kardashian. Whether you love her or hate her, the woman is everywhere and knows clothes… Except when she’s taking them off but who are we to judge.

Like her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim has been seen sporting long gloves over jacket sleeves. She also shows them off in statement coats with slits in the sleeves.

There are several ways to let your gloves shine in your winter clothing. The most obvious choices are over a coat sleeve or with three-quarter length sleeves.

Pair either of these looks with a leather belt to create an hourglass silhouette and you will wow this season.

If, like Beyoncé, you want to go formal-wear then the key is to mix textures or risk looking like Venus de Milo. She wore this look at the Met Gala 2013 and paired it with thigh high boots for their punk theme.

Long gloves, whether elbow-length or higher, can tone down a plunging cleavage or strapless dress. This is true for daywear and eveningwear. Try it for yourself with our elbow-length gloves.
