Evening gloves were first seen in the 17th Century. It wasn't until the Regency era, the 1800s, that they really became fashionable. After World War 1, they became MUST HAVE accessory for Hollywood glamour and formal evenings. They are often now used by celebrities when styling their red carpet looks. Here are my top 5 favourites:
1. The Polly Gloves - Long Leather Evening Gloves
Our Polly gloves end just above the elbow, and they can be dressed up or down. Wear with a formal evening gown, like Poppy Delevingne in 2019 at a Jo Malone shoot. Or styled down with jeans and a white top, like Jade from Little Mix did in April 2021. These are the exact gloves and you can get them here.
