From smart, cashmere gloves to practical all-rounders, there’s something for everyone. After leather gloves? Check out our separate round-up.
1. Johnstons Cable Knit Cashmere Gloves: £39, selfridges.com
These sumptuously soft cable knitted, cashmere gloves will see you through the colder winter months in both warmth and style. Lovely and long and in a classic grey, they are good value for such high quality cashmere too and have a great fit.
2. Superdry Herders Mittens: £19.99, superdry.com
There’s no chance of your hands getting cold in these lovely thick mittens with chunky knit, warm fleece lining and ribbed cuff. Colours include damson, blue, brown and cream and there’s a matching snood available. Need something more glamorous? You can get them with a faux fur cuff, too.
3. The White Company Cashmere Gloves: £45, thewhitecompany.com
The White Company always comes up trumps when it comes to gloves and these super-soft black cashmere gloves with stretchy rib trim won’t disappoint. They feel luxurious the moment you slip them on and are nice and toasty warm.
4. M&S Soft Gloves: £6, marksandspencer.com
Available in five colours, these no nonsense, no frills, knitted gloves are just the job for colder days. And at under a tenner, they're a particularly good choice for people who are prone to losing the odd glove in life.
5. Topshop Sheepskin Mittens: £20, topshop.com
You can pay a small fortune for sheepskin mittens or gloves, making these tan ones with turn-up cuffs great value. These are practical and great for a casual look and they keep your hands wonderfully warm, even on the coldest of winter days.
6. Berghaus Windygripper II Gloves: £35, berghaus.com
These are completely windproof and very durable, with decent insulation, making them great all-rounders. The leather palms, grippy detail and pre-curved fit mean it’s easy to adjust clothing and use other kit while on the move without having to expose your hands to the elements.
7. Joules Mable Gloves: £18.95, joules.com
In true Joules style, these cable knit gloves are a classic shape with an innovative twist of colour. Made from 50 per cent wool and 50 per cent polyamide, they are comfortable. Keep washing machines, tumble driers and irons well away from them though – hand wash only.
8. Fat Face Block Colour Overflap Mittens: £18, fatface.com
You won’t mind one iota if the cold weather starts to bite with these lovely mittens with button fastening. For milder days – or times you need your fingers – simply undo the button and make use of the flip top style lid to reveal fingerless gloves.
9. UGG Bailey Gloves: £120, uggaustralia.co.uk
UGG are better known for their boots, but they make splendid sheepskin gloves too, all with a bold twist. We love these for their beautiful blue colour (although you can also get them in tan, black or chocolate) and their button detail and exposed shearling opening. Word of advice: buy a size larger than you think you need.
10. North Face Runners 3 Overmitts: £35, thenorthface.co.uk
These waterproof, breathable and stretchable gloves are made for runners and do the job brilliantly, but actually they double up as brilliant for any outdoor pursuits, keeping fingers toasty warm whatever the weather. They’ll see you through many winters ahead.
11. White Stuff Romy Glove: £15, whitestuff.com
You can always depend on White Stuff for an innovative casual look. These pretty gloves, which are available in three different colours, are really comfy and feature a classic block design with heart detailing, finished with their signature birdy charm branding.
12. Helly Hansen Down Ski Gloves: £80, hellyhansen.com
Although, as the name suggests, they may be aimed at skiers, we think these waterproof, windproof and breathable gloves are great for practical, outdoorsy types. Includes nose wipe, adjustable gaitor, adjustable water-resistant band, goat leather reinforcement on the palm and fingers and water repellency treatment.
13. Boden Cosy Stitch Gloves: £19, boden.co.uk
If you have long fingers, you’ll know how annoying it can be to find gloves that fit. But these beauties suit hands of all sizes and are not too bulky either. You can easily hold things with a decent grip, yet they are elegant and simple, as well as available in range of colours.
It’s hard to fault Superdry’s Herders Mittens for toastiness and being right on trend. If you want a smarter look, The White Company’s Cashmere Gloves are utterly divine.
