The North Star Flip-Top Mittens draw inspiration from Art Deco–era sunburst mirrors. The slip-stitch stripes of the starburst design are a modern take on the retro look and add a bit of light to your winter wardrobe. Convertible mittens are perfect for those cold winter days when your hands demand coziness but you still need to use your smartphone and dig for your keys.
