My hands already feel dry from the constant hand washing, and now that cold weather is here, my hands are even more chapped and cracked (which is why I lotion every day, several times a day). This is where winter gloves come in handy. Recently, I've come into possession of several new pairs-cashmere pairs (I know, fancy)-after losing/shrinking my older gloves. With my newfound love for this accessory, I'd like to introduce you to some of the best winter glove options on the market now. From waterproof options-great for building a snowman with your nieces or nephews-to elegant leather gloves to my beloved cashmere pair, warm gloves are as crucial to your winter wardrobe as a good piece of outerwear or snow boot.


1 Colorblock Gloves

Chunky 2-in-1 Patchwork Stripe Armwarmers

Gloves, like your other accessories, should be an expression of your style. What's a more appropriate way to make clear that you have a unique and fun, not boring, fashion sense than with these colorful, chunky, ribbed gloves? Bonus: They're touch-screen friendly.


2 Long Cutout Gloves

Black Wool Long Circle Gloves

These knit gloves make a statement, should you decide not to hide the cutout design when you wear them. Opt to pair these with a sleeveless top-they'll keep the rest of your arms warm.


3 Long Cashmere Gloves

The Circle Cable Gloves-Cashmere

These gloves are 100 percent cashmere and feature a cable stitch pattern down the center for subtle details. We love the longer length because it'll keep the wind from creeping into your gloves.


4 Leather Gloves With Texting

Sculpted Signature Leather Tech Gloves

For a pair of text-friendly leather gloves under $100, shop this elegant pair from Coach. The gloves come in multiple hues and are lined with merino wool to keep your fingers toasty as you text or call.


5 Waterproof Winter Gloves

Quilts Insulated Breathable Glove With Waterproof Wicking Insert, Crabapple, S

Whether you live in a place known for its harsh winters or need a pair of waterproof gloves for your ski trips, you'll find that this pair of gloves will protect you from rain, snow, and more.


6 Knit Touchscreen Gloves

Warm Touchscreen Gloves for Women

You can text while wearing these gloves and hold onto things without the fear of them slipping through your palms (note the large triangle silicone palm grip). At just $10, we'll be buying a pair for each of our family members.


7 Wool Gloves

Wool Texting Gloves

If you're looking for a pair of gloves you can toss in the washing machine because gloves touch everything (and can get pretty gross), go with this wool option from Madewell. Complete the look with a matching colored beanie.


8 HEATTECH Winter Gloves

HEATTECH Function Gloves

Uniqlo is the place to turn to for affordable HEATTECH gear, so we're not surprised they incorporated the function into their glove offerings. The lining of this glove is made with HEATTECH, which absorbs moisture and is super warm. The exterior is made of "Blocktech," which keeps out the wind while the thumb and index finger are equipped with touchscreen capabilities.


9 Ribbed Cashmere Gloves

Essential Cashmere Gloves

Cashmere gloves that come in almost all colors of the rainbow. Go ahead and get a pair for yourself and then everyone else in your life-they'll thank you.


10 Reflective Gloves

Flurry Reflective Glove

For runners and those who work out before the sun even rises (or after the sun has set), you'll need these winter gloves. They're lightweight, stretchy, touchscreen compatible, and have reflective details so people can easily spot you.


11 Convertible Wool Gloves

Convertible Fingerless Wool Gloves

You tend to run warm. Slip into these convertible fingerless gloves, which are thick and plushy. Now you don't have to worry about excessive hand sweat.


12 Colorblock Leather Gloves

Colorblock Leather Gloves

These colorblock leather gloves look fancy and cool for just under $100. They make a great gift for yourself or for someone else in your life. Not a fan of the red? How about the blue and black option?
