Punch-Drunk Glove

Gray elbow length merino glovesHaving a Holly Golightly moment? Satisfy your cravings for the finer things in life with a pair of gray Marc by Marc Jacobs elbow length merino gloves. The wanna-be socialite would declare the semi-formal length appropriate for both daytime and evening — and she would be correct. Elongated gloves, associated with elegance and aristocracy, were typically worn with evening wear and popularized as daywear with Christian Dior's New Look in the 1950s. Wear with the half-sleeve swing coats, short-sleeve cardigans, and cropped jackets which ruled the runways this season. ($98)
