10 Sexy Driving Gloves for Women
They may seem anachronistic but driving gloves are a fun affectation. Slip them on and become a different person.

Why do I need them?
Driving gloves were originally worn for practical purposes: They gave drivers better control of the wheel, helped grip wooden steering wheels and they kept hands clean. Fast-forward to today, when high-end designers are using them as a statement-making accessory. Jaguar even commissioned Zac Posen to make a limited collection a few years back that fused the brand’s image with luxury fashion. The beauty of these gloves is that they retain their usefulness, but they also look fabulous and cutting-edge as part of an outfit when you’re not behind the wheel. Here are 10 hot pairs that get us revved up.
