Your wedding is undoubtedly one of the most important and memorable days in your entire life. So much decision-making is involved... let me take some of the guesswork out of it by providing some useful advice on pairing your favorite Ines Gloves with your personal style of wedding dress. 

Short glace gloves

Wrist-length glace gloves were in vogue in the 1950s and 1960s. White- and cream-coloured gloves were the most popular shades to wear on your wedding day. At that time, such gloves showed a young lady of proper breeding. Today, however, more and brighter colors are appearing at the altar!

Short, every day glace gloves function best with a vintage-style wedding dress, no longer than tea length (falling several inches above the ankle).

It's your wedding day, and the spotlight is all on you! Choose your leather wedding gloves to define your own personal style....

Elbow-length gloves

Whether in white or black, elbow-length leather gloves will add a touch of elegance and femininity to your wedding day look. Cashmere-lined glace gloves look very dramatic when worn with a flowy, feminine wedding dress made from organza, charmeuse, or tulle. Simply stunning!

Opera-length gloves first made their dramatic appearance in the pre-World War 1 era, and quickly became a symbol of feminine elegance. As this glovey trend caught on, necklines plunged, the sleeves of evening gowns grew shorter, and the gloves grew delightfully longer!

Before you slip into a pair of shoulder-high leather gloves, there are certain rules of etiquette that apply.

Black shoulder-high gloves

Black leather gloves are extremely elegant, with a hint of sensuality. They are slimming, and are perhaps best for highlighting the feminine contours of the hands and arms, especially when paired with your wedding dress. Yes, black is bold... but a strapless, contemporary, and chic wedding dress with a pair of long leather stretch gloves will stun your guests and make for a superb wedding day (or night) look.

White is probably the most popular color to be associated with weddings. It's perfectly elegant and beautiful... can you really pair a white leather glove with a white wedding dress?? With Ines, of course, you can! If you would rather not, we have just the glove for you!

Round top shoulder-high gloves

Rounded top long leather gloves are the perfect glove for adding a touch of feminine elegance to your wedding day look. The rounded cuff of this glove is very delicate, while the thin, fitted kidskin leather looks graceful on anyone. These gloves are available in a nude color, which would only just offset the white of your wedding dress. Try these gloves with a simple gown... let these graceful gloves speak for themselves!
