Gloves can be a romantic addition to the wedding but are they outdated? The simple answer is: it really all depends on the type of gloves in question. The cut, length, fabric, color and style of the gloves determines whether the gloves will look stylish or not.
The sum of all the accessories really can make or break the outfit so it is important to choose wisely. Gloves that were popular in the 1990s were usually elbow length high sheen fabrics like satin with lace cut outs; often times fingerless with a loop for the middle finger to keep it in place.
Modern gloves are different in every sense of the word, usually taking an all or nothing approach to lace; ie they are either all over lace or no lace at all. Modern gloves also feature much smaller simpler lace patterns versus the large bold intricate lace patterns of older models. Anything longer than wrist length can easily look over the top and out of place. Crystal beaded sheer cuffs as popularly seen in Ines Di Santo runway shows are the height of bridal fashion, they as modern and as stylish as it can get in the glove department!
