Try a Trend: Driving Gloves

Hey Guys,
So while the most recent runways are showing you what will be hot next spring, I wanted to clue you into a trend idea that true modern fashionistas can't help but rock:
...driving gloves.
Though the accessory debuted in the Fall 2007 runway shows, the style has been quietly acquired by some of fashion's most forward trensetters due to it's rock & roll, daredevil chic aesthetic:
Victoria Beckham has been spied wearing leather driving gloves with anything from red carpet gowns...
...to jeans and blazers.
And fashionista Rihanna wore a pair with a flouncy dress:
...accessorized with chains and a peek-a-boo bra.
Even guys get in on it, with Kanye pairing his with a white jacket....
....and the singular Karl Lagerfeld accessorizing his uniform with kid gloves.
If you want to go out on a limb this fall, try these:
1. Nordstrom Fingerless Driving Gloves, $78. 2. Carolina Amato Gloves Driving Gloves, Yellow, $149. 3. Carolina Amato Gloves, White, $149. 4. French Connection Driving Gloves, $58. 5. Bloomingdales Leather Driving Gloves, $40.
Smootches!

The look of driving gloves can be really cute, but my pragmatic side just won't let me deny the fact that I have no 'use' for them. However, I know I can justify how much I "need" a parasol.

I love the yellow gloves in particular. I've always desired a pair of beautiful gloves in a jewel or warm color.
