Keep in touch with your phone, even when it's cold outside.
If you hail from colder climes, then you likely can't text outside from October until March — at least, not without some protection. Touchscreen gloves are a great way to keep using your phone outside, and function oftentimes trumps fashion in that market. But we've found some stellar style options that'll stand out and make your hands feel like they won the lottery.
If you're more into function than form, then check out our roundup of the best touchscreen gloves.

Barney's New York Tech-Smart suede gloves
These fine suede gloves from Barney's come in black, blue, and "open", which is a dark, rich brown (my favorite).

Gizelle Renee Theodore Gentlemen's Wooly Glove
If the leather or suede looks don't tickle your fancy, then check out these wool gloves by Gizelle Renee. They have a contrast leather trim, which stands out from the sandy colored wool and adds an accent of sophistication.
The bespoke velcro fastener adds a standout accent as well, and the wrist features elastic, so you can tighten it as much as you like and still feel like you can move your wrists around.
