One of the hot trends you will see on both the Couture and the Ready-to-Wear runway this fall is the gloved hand.  Long, short or in between, gloves are once again a major fashion statement.  Gloves in high fashion were extremely popularity during the 1940’s and 1950’s during which time the long glove was often seen being worn with strapless gowns by Hollywood starlets.  During the 1960’s gloves decreased in popularity and remained an overlooked accessory for years.  The population for the most part, returned to thinking of gloves in a purely utilitarian manner.  Gloves, however, can add a new dimension to almost any outfit and are the perfect “touch” to complete your look.  Today’s designers are making gloves available in many different styles, fabrics, textures, colors and lengths.  Even men’s fashion has embraced this trend both as a sporty accessory and as a compliment to evening wear.
