Winter officially starts on Dec. 21, but the temperatures have already begun dropping. Winter gloves are a necessity if you live in a cool climate, but depending on what you use them for, there are many different styles to choose from. For example, a pair for your morning commute will look different than ski gloves to keep you warm on the slopes.

Whether you’re looking for a fashion-forward mitten or an all-weather glove to beat the elements, we have you covered. Below we’ve rounded up the best winter gloves for your cold-weather activities.
