When you think of fancy burlesque gloves, the image that often swirls into the mind is an elegant movie star posed in some black and white photograph from the early 1900s. Charming and beautiful, the woman is decked out in a floor-length formal coat with a thick fur-trimmed collar, one of her silk-covered arms outstretched, her fingers grasping delicately for something just out of reach beyond the corner of the frame. While gloves in modern times usually don’t come hand in hand with a long fur coat anda roll of black and white film, that old-fashioned air of elegance is still infused into their fabric, adding an instant boost of class and charm to whoever slips them on.

Burlesque gloves are yet another clothing accessory that can really tip the scale towards a flawless burlesque outfit. With their air of corectness, they’re a great addition to a fancy dress for an extra boost of elegance, or to a barely there burlesque costume in order to cover up a little more skin perhaps.

Most burlesque gloves available are black or red and elbow-length. Some are decorated with feather trim or little bows, some are constructed of black lace that looks like a gossamer spiderweb twisting up the wearer’s arm, while still others are made entirely of peacock feathers. Which style you choose depends on your personal tastes and the nature of the event to which you’re planning on attending with your new accessory.
