Gloves can keep your hands protected from the elements and make a chic accessory. A good pair should be crafted with soft, non-scratchy materials that offer comfortable stretch. If you can use your phone without taking them off, that’s a plus.

We included a selection of casual to dressier styles that you can wear while texting. All the options can accommodate a range of hand sizes and come in multiple colors.
