Don’t Bare Arms

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 17, 2012

Looking for a chic accessory that will pack a lot of punch without overwhelming your wedding-day look? Gloves can be the perfect addition you’re looking for. Designers added long opera gloves, short lace gloves and even gauntlets, fingerless gloves, to complete the look of their wedding gowns.

While gloves were once a staple in every woman’s daily wardrobe, they are now limited to cold weather and formal events, but after seeing the various pairings on the runway brides having an informal or formal, day or evening, ballroom or backyard wedding can put on a pair.

Here’s a glove-wearing tip: For the wedding ceremony, ask your seamstress to cut a slit on the ring finger of the left glove so your groom can easily place a wedding band on your finger.

Here are a few glove options from the Fall 2013 Bridal runway:

Anne Barge’s Parisian-inspired collection showcased both long and short options. On the far left is a pair of off-white short fingerless gloves, adorned with a small bow. In the center, sheer opera gloves, that go over the elbow, is the perfect complement to a tulle gown. Both gloves by Carolina Amato.

Pnina Tornai, exclusively at Kleinfeld, designed a pair of lace gauntlets embellished with silver embroidery, and if you look carefully you can see a large decorative bow at the top of each one.
