Growing up, I was always the kind of kid who would roll her eyes when my mom forced me to wear gloves on a chilly day. Why did my childhood self associate bundling up with not looking cool?! In 2021, chic outerwear is an absolute must, and following the fashion parade that was Wednesday’s presidential inauguration, a new winter trend has emerged: Matching coats and gloves.
Yes, it’s been done before, but pretty much every great coat worn to the inauguration ceremony was accented by a pair of matching leather gloves. So classy and chic! Not to mention no frozen fingers! Suddenly, the only two pairs of gloves in my possession—a ratty knit pair I’ve had since high school and a pair with tech index fingers I hardly ever use—simply won’t cut it. I’m desperately in need of cool leather gloves that match my winter coat perfectly, and if I need to buy a new coat to make it happen, so be it!
See how easy it is for me to justify buying a new coat? And you can, too! I’m only joking; but for real: If you’re into the matching coat and glove trend happening right now, read on for seven monochrome pairings to make your heart all aflutter. Or, scroll through and find the gloves that match the coat you’ve already got at home. Who could blame you?

Since black can be basic, go for a glove with a little extra flair, like this Lele Sadoughi pair with a subtle ruffle trim.
This is the exact jacket spotted on Natalie Biden at the inauguration, and even though it costs more than my monthly rent, I’m seriously considering it. This more affordable option from Cole Haan might be enough to hold me over, though.

for some subtle tonal play.
Winter white is always a vibe, so this Missguided teddy coat is definitely high on my To Buy list.
