Tis’ the season for cold, blistery weather. One of the most essential accessories to protect you from the impending weather are gloves. Besides keeping your digits nice and toasty, gloves can help prevent that irritating and annoying dry skin and add a little something extra to your wardrobe. But, there’s a bit of problem. Gloves of yesteryear weren’t designed to work on touchscreens. You can’t exactly blame designers, smartphones and tablets were obviously not in the hands of essentially every person in the world. Needless to say, if you have previously tried to check you email or update your Facebook status while wearing a glove, you may have had some difficulty. However, designers have caught on to the current wave of technology. If you’ve been on the lookout for a pair of fashionable gloves that can work effectively on your touchscreen device, here are 10 options.
A comfortable and warm pair of gloves that offer skin-like responsiveness on your iPhone or iPad, but we assume any touchscreen device. Being knitted in a general black and grey yarns not only makes pairing an ease, it also offers a discrete look. You wouldn’t want people to think that you’re some sort of geek. Available HERE for only $20.
The North Face ‘E Tip Denali’ Fleece Gloves
Here’s an option for extremely frigid days and nights or when on the slopes. The ‘E-Tip Denali’ Fleece Gloves from The North Face have been constructed with heat-containing elasticized wrists.
