There is an old “ism” that you can tell a “lady” by her hands. No matter what your profession, cracked, dry and scaling hands say anything but “lady.” If you’re going through the trouble of putting together coats and boots and hats and scarves (also featured in this segment), why stop before completing the look? Gloves are like an exclamation mark accenting your outerwear statement, and this season they come in lots of shapes and colors. And they feel oooh so good. So ditch the boring old standbys-think if this as the equivalent of lip-gloss for your hands. (L-R): Saks Fifth Avenue cognac & brown leather w/cashmere lining $110.
