In the absence of sleeves, long fingerless gloves make an elegant statement at a formal event. When knit up in a lightweight fabric from non-wool yarn, this version in two sizes (S/L) will carry the day, allowing you to get away with a slip of a dress when temperatures soar. And they’ll continue to add a fun touch when you change into shorts or jeans later on. Knit in a silk/linen blend with stripes worked right into the fabric, they look smashing paired with a wide scarf in the same fabric to complete the outfit. Add beads if desired for a little extra bling.
