Honestly... who doesn't think of Jackie O when you see vintage gloves?!
So classic!!

Historically, gloves served both a practical and visually appealing purpose alike. Prior to the turn of the last century in particular, Gloves kept hands clean and warm and showed that a woman knew the social decorum of dressing for a given occasion. Though cleanliness and warmth became less of a reason to sport gloves as the Edwardian era gave way to the 1920s and beyond, the latter point still rung true and most ladies did not consider their ensembles - baring those for very casual, beach or sporty settings - complete without a pair of gloves all year. This mindset remained in place until the early 1960s, at which point in fashion history where gloves began to be seen less and less frequently (much like ladies hats).Mothers would have passed along their knowledge on wearing and buying gloves to their daughters, and for those young ladies who may not have had such guidance in their life, fashion magazine, home ec books on personal style, and society as a whole whole be there to help guide them on this front.
