Fingerless Gloves: The Cold Weather Touchscreen Solution!

Each week my coats seem to get a little thicker as the temperature drops, and soon it'll be time to bundle up. My pet peeve of the cold weather is trying to press buttons on the iPod and otherwise use my iPhone's touchscreen while keeping my hands warm in gloves.

A few Winters ago, I got used to just taking off my gloves when I needed to use the clickwheel (or, I'm not proud to admit, using a pair of gloves with a hole in the forefinger) on my iPod.

But this time, I'll be ready! I'm conquering the touchscreen/glove dilemma by getting into fingerless gloves. My faves are these Preference Gloves from Anthropologie that have a mitten attachment, so you're not constantly looking like a posh punk. Unless that's what you're going for.

I totally hate fingerless gloves. Why? It's my FINGERTIPS that get cold, dummy. Why should I warm up my knuckles?

Mod Cloth has some cute ones, too.

I have really cute black and pink striped fingerless gloves from Hot Topic, but they don't have the fold over thingy to turn them into mittens. They're really cute and were like 12 dollars.

They're okay. I always feel like a hobo when wearing them though.

I love those gloves, they are so cute! Unfortunately it is 86 degrees right now where I live. It may never get to be sweater season in Southern California. :-(

I love fingerless mittens. They are my favorite. They aren't as bulky as regular gloves (in my opinion) and they keep my hands warm and I don't have to take them off when I need to use my fingers.

Yes! I bought a pair like the ones you mention, with the fold-over mitten part, from Payless. Sadly they were pretty crappily made and the buttons already fell off (I've only worn them twice!). But that's what I get for only paying $3 for them. I'll definitely be looking into better quality ones soon though. :P
