Opera Gloves Are the Confusing But Cute Fashion Trend That's Suddenly Everywhere
It's been done before: year-round neckscarves and slouchy beanies, boots made to be worn during the summer, etc. But it looks like gloves — specifically, opera gloves — are the latest cold-weather fashion staple to become seasonless. The extra-long accessory has definitely become an 'it' item for 2022, and celebrities like Bella Hadid, Sydney Sweeney, Julia Fox, Saweetie, and more are hopping on board, both on the red carpet and off.
Opera gloves are here for the long haul, too. While they're currently trending for spring and summer (yes, summer!), major fashion houses incorporated them into their fall collections, thus convincing us they're a worthy investment.
Of course, you may be asking yourself "How in the world do I scroll through Instagram or eat a side of fries?" That answer remains unknown, but it won't stop us from embracing this surprisingly versatile little extra (it could also be a new excuse to disconnect). Opera gloves can actually be worn in many different ways, whether they're paired with a voluminous evening gown or used as statement piece against basics, such as an oversized blazer.
This accessory is hands-down the hottest trend of 2022, so if you're ready to give 'em a go, here are some opera gloves outfits to try, ASAP.
