Oh, the age of technology. Living in 2010 means you have the world at your fingertips: literally. As a large number of the population is now using touch-friendly technology, such as iPhones, iPads and more, there’s only one thing that can hold you back from ruling the world with your tech device this season; how will you be able to check Facebook (or read the latest sales pearls from the Fashion Hippo) on your beloved device without exposing your fingertips to the brisk winter air?
Luckily, that question is answered through the invention of ingenious (and surprisingly cute) touch gloves: a handy outerwear, which enables you to use touch-technology without taking off your gloves. Designed with a specific type of touch-friendly fabric on the pointer finger and thumb, different varieties of these touch gloves prove to be smart, chic, and able to withstand the elements.
Here are our favorite touch gloves that marry style and function and don’t make your hands look like they are extended from a body of a bionic woman:
