Finding a pair of gloves that are warm is easy, but finding a pair that's slim and fits well is often a struggle. Lots of brands get this right, such as Burberry, Coach, and Brooks Brothers. Yet it can feel impossible to locate the perfect, handsome set when you need it.  

Below, we have three dozen pairs that should do the trick for any number of different situations—from when you have to use your phone outdoors to those times you just need a nice looking flourish to an otherwise complete outfit. 

A word to the wise: Get more than one of these pairs. Come April, you're going to have an odd number of gloves, so just get used to the idea now and plan ahead.

You can't go wrong with a classic, and it never hurts to have an additional few pairs of leather gloves. Start with basic black, then get a brown pair, and then feel free to branch out with colors and patterns.
