Winter weather is no joke, folks. Whether you’re on the West Coast getting super soaked by the Pineapple Express, or the East Coast enduring a nor’easter and inches (or feet) of snow, you need to be able to access your phone to tweet and ‘gram this cray-cray weather. Tech-friendly gloves are an essential winter accessory and they protect your holiday mani from those blistery blizzard winds. Thanks to the technology in these smart-tipped gloves, you’d be able to scroll through these options if you had a pair on right now.


1. Rothko Touchscreen Gloves ($29): Inspired by the artist’s expressionist work, these gloves feature the same color blocking technique as his magnificent masterpieces. Plus they come in five different color options, so take your pick.


2. Urban Outfitters Texting Glove ($10): It’s hard to believe our kids will never know what it’s like to see static on a TV screen or know what rabbit ears are. These gloves have the technicolor effect of poor reception AND the high-tech capabilities of being able to tweet when it’s 20 below.


3. J.Crew Cashmere-lined Tech Gloves ($98): We know and love Jenna Lyons‘ penchant for a pop of color. Keep it simple with this pair of lipstick red gloves.
