The power of glove
It is unquestionably glove time – a marker of seasons that always makes me happy, until I lose one. Other valuable lessons: camel sounds chic but can make your hands look huge. Fake fur trims tend to look cheap. Buttons or piping are classier. There are some beauties around now. Long coloured ones with three-quarter
sleeves can look amazing: Sermoneta is the place (shop. sermonetagloves. com). But if you’re looking for everyday, burgundy is a good choice that works with everything (Marks & Spencer’s have excellent cashmere-lined leather ones).
