Now we’re well into the fall season and quickly heading for winter, it’s time to start thinking about those designer winter warmers. We’re publishing a series of posts based on extra designer clothes you’ll need to keep snug and warm this winter.
We’re starting with designer handwarmers, covering everything from gloves, mittens and fingerless gloves to actual handwarmers in cuff form and the mini hot water bottle type of warmers which can be filled with hot water. There are also more eco-friendly filled versions which just need to be microwaved for a few seconds to heat up.
For classic vintage styles, head over to eBay where you can find many different kinds of handwamers from a wide range of designers. If you’re buying a new designer handwarmer, please buy faux fur rather than real fur if you must buy a fur designer handwarmer.
The advantage of designer handwarmers and gloves is that they will last a long time. Winter gets very slippery and handwarmers can be ripped or damaged easily. If you’re buying an actual warming handwarmer, it will retain the heat a lot better and be slower at cooling than its cheaper counterparts.
Furthermore, designer handwarmers are likely to invite a lot of comments, questions and compliments from people. It’s always good to be able to say, ‘Yeah, It’s a designer handwarmer’ and name drop the designer into the conversation too. The disadvantages are that they are easy to leave behind, particularly if they get cold or damp, so don’t forget to pick your handwarmer, gloves or mittens up to avoid having to buy expensive replacements.
