I may not be the most detail obsessed person, but I can’t stand to see a great outfit fail for lack of attention to a particular element. Why bother with getting your hair done, brows plucked and new shoes if you don’t plan on steaming your dress (see Nicky Hilton below)… No need to get the outfit right if your shoes can stand a bit of polish! Now that the winter months are approaching, be sure to get your entire game tight, or at least pretend that it is…The best way to do this is to have immaculate outerwear. Be sure that your coat, boots, scarves, gloves and hat are in order and we’ll worry about what’s underneath later.

The model, above, is wearing a coat from Charlie Brown's Autumn/Winter 2007 Collection. I'd love to see this coat paired with red leather driving gloves.

With respect to outerwear, my pet peeve is ridiculous gloves. Preposterous gloves will bring your winter ensemble down! See infra: I didn't set out to pick on the Hilton sisters, but if the glove fits...

Here are my picks for fabulous gloves! I’m a big fan of driving gloves… check out this one from TopShop, only 15.00 pounds sterling:

Banana Republic's Shearling Buckled Gloves are $98.00:

Add some spunk to regular 'ole black leather gloves with these studded leather wool-lined gloves from Michael Kors, only $60.00 on BlueFly! :

Styletip: mittens are only cute on the kiddies!
