10 best gloves

After a mild (and wet) start, January has turned chilly, so keep your hands toasty in the cold with these winter warmers

Whether it’s raining or snowing, chilly weather and wet conditions can wreak havoc on your hands. In these colder months, don’t leave home without a pair of cosy gloves. From snug knitted numbers like Superdry’s Fair Isle pair, to practical, waterproof and snow-proof bits of kit like Berghaus’s Mountain AQ gloves, we round up the most practical, stylish and cosy gloves and mitts in the shops and online.


If you after style, then we reckon TM Lewin’s leopard print calf leather numbers are a winner for women; they are smart, soft and classic, while managing to be on-trend too. For serious warmth, invest in a pair of Ugg In and Out gloves. Tech addicts who won’t let some white stuff stem their text addiction should try Proporta’s touch screen gloves . And finally, fashion-conscious blokes can’t go wrong (or have to dig too deep) with Asos’s stripey fingerless pair.
