You know that ânature healsâ in New York when the subway becomes a sea of ââblack coats and down jackets. It’s the stereotypical city uniform when it’s cold, and I already see TikTok videos about it that warms my frozen heart. However, not all New Yorkers want to wear black all year round. Call it ‘dopamine dress-up’ or just a change of mind, but since the lockdown some city dwellers have made a conscious effort to introduce more color into their wardrobes (me being one of them). It’s a good boost in cheerful mood – for yourself and those around you. Especially during the winter months, when sunshine and daylight hours are scarce.
Accessories are an easy way to spice up an otherwise all-black uniform. And since you’ll be bundled up most of the time anyway, colorful gloves are a practical investment. Take, for example, these Dries Van Noten candy pink leather gloves made in Italy and pictured here. The designer’s fall 2021 collection was sultry and romantic with lots of rich textures and prints. If you have seen Carole, you know that gloves are one of the most romantic gifts a person can give. Or just treat them to yourself as a little treat. It’s what I’m going to do !
