Thanks to Alexander McQueen's A\W12 show last week, we've gone gaga for gloves. Long, elegant, glamorous gloves to be precise. McQueen wasn't the only designer who went for the ladylike look, with Marios Schwab, Aquascutum, Clements Ribeiro, and Emilia Wickstead all featuring long gloves in their shows. They symbolise a return to old school glamour, which I can't help thinking was inspired by a certain Kate Middleton.

Obviously it's not one for everyone (although perfect for those with tiny wrists and slim arms), there are versions for most styles - from goth glamour to old Hollywood. 

If you're tempted to try out this style, we've rounded up five of our favourites. Keep an eye on the The Bag Lady though, aswe're sure we'll see plenty more hitting the high street and designer online stores. 

Will you be wearing long gloves in six months time? Or do you prefer your wool basics?
