Spring is just weeks away, but snowstorms are still hitting the Midwest in full force, which means you'll probably be layering up in sweaters, gloves, and hats. The downside? The gloves that keep your digits nice and warm could put a damper on your texting addiction (I know how much you all love to text). Fear not; these gloves will keep the chill away, while still allowing you to send those important (or, maybe not so important) text messages.
Gloves are one of the little things in life we often overlook — and we think it's high time to give this little accessory a lot more love. After all, they can help your frigid fingers stay warm (how else would we text and tweet?) and can make more of a fashion statement than you think. Just check out Anne Hathaway's checkered pair — function and fashion at its best. While there are some simpler iterations on the market, we're all about the ones that pack a little more punch with zippers, studs, fur accents, pretty bows, and cool prints. With that in mind, we tracked down 25 pairs to give your digits something warm — and very cool — to wear all Winter.

Stay protected from the sun's glare with a cool pair of polarized shades, some sunscreen, and a running cap. We love Oakley's Beckon sunglasses ($160) because they are as fashionable as they are functional! Keep the face protected with lululemon's wicking cap ($32), which has a nifty zip pocket on the side, and don't forget to slather on some Neutrogena Sport Face suncreen ($12). Regardless of the season, staying hydrated is key; we love the Water Geeks Lab bottle ($24) because of its built-in filter that gets rid of impurities. Unpredictable Spring weather means layering, but you can skip the jacket with these Sugoi Lucky Arm Warmers ($40). Stretch them up to stay warm while riding, running, or hiking, or push them down to feel the sun on your guns.
