YF Accessories Collection . . . Brrring On the Cold and Snow
Winter made a Grand Entrance as it blew into the Chicagoland Area. Quickly plummeting temps, blizzard condition snow, and a frigid wind chill that could reach gusts of up to 50 miles-per-hour were just a few of the weather report highlights. Ugh! Of course, your count-down to Christmas TO DO LIST is still super long with a few more names to cross off the Holiday Gift List, must head to the grocery store for Sunday’s Brunch, and you still need to pick-up your fur coats from storage at York Furrier, so you’ll be stylish and warm. While we’re not able to assist with groceries (though YF does have a signature treat – York Peppermint Patties!), the YF Collection features FUNctional accessories to gift (or keep), and for Last Minute Shoppers, the store is open 10AM – 3PM on Christmas Eve to wrap-up great gifts and pick-up your mink jacket from our climate-controlled vaults (YF keeps temps purposefully chilly!).
Full of HATitude
Be Top of your Style Game (and keep ears warm) wearing a statement making fur trooper hat or don a fun and playful fur pom trimmed knit beanie. This season’s options will make it hard to pick just one. YF Collection Hat Styles include beret, bucket, cloche hat, tam, baseball cap, pom trimmed cashmere beanie, and the stand-out style of an oversized fur trooper hat.
For a more subtle look select a fur headband with a Velcro closure. Wear it on top of hair like a halo or wrap around from top of head to under hair for a ‘60’s style look that’s perfect for the ski slopes. F.Y.I. a fur headband may also be worn as a neck warmer – wrap the fur around the back of your neck and close the Velcro side in a v-shape in front. Viola! You’ve created a polished look for a cashmere sweater, or wear tucked into your coat collar for extra warmth.
If you need a no fuss, no muss sportier option to keep ears warm, opt for fur earmuffs. The YF Collection features this casual luxe accessory in abundance. Choose from ranch mink all fur earmuffs to a pair of silver fox earmuffs with a white leather band, mahogany mink earmuffs with a matching velvet band, even red sheared mink to wear from Christmas thru Valentine’s Day! For those that would like to match their earmuffs to their fur coat, the talented YF Design Team is on-site to custom create a pair for you!
Get Caught Necking
While grandma had her trusty babushka, you, my dear, have a plethora of fabulous choices to add a splash of fashionable color to your winter gear – fur scarf, chenille scarf, or fur neck warmers. From the YF Collection, choose from lots of styles, fur types, and lengths. They’re haute looks for cold days.
At York Furrier, you’ll find stretchy knit fox neck warmers in subtle to bold colors. These may be worn around the neck on top of a jacket or coat, paired with a poncho or cape, or use it as a headband on blustery days.
Chenille scarves are the perfect accessory for guys to toss on over a leather jacket, cashmere overcoat, or pair with a mink zip jacket. No matter how he ties it on, from a simple toss over the shoulder, doubled-up French style, to a polished ascot style, the look will add a dash of fashion and keep him toasty warm. The YF Collection of hand loomed chenille scarves has lots of patterns and rich colors available.
Add some spice to your winter outlook, cuddle-up with a fabulous fur scarf! Again, the YF Collection has your neck covered with lots of options – knit fur with a rosette detail to wear as a collar, fur infinity scarves to wear draped long, pageant style, or double wrapped for extra warmth, along with an array of mixed medium fur straight scarves to tie on or tuck into your collar. Either way you wear a fur scarf, know you’ll get lots of compliments and definitely be warm and cozy.
So Much to gLOVE!
From runways to the roadway, one of the hottest winter trends this year is a perfectly practical pair of gloves. It’s so handy that this underrated accessory looks super chic while it shields hands from winter conditions. Choose from knit fingerless gloves with fur and bead embellishments, lined leather gloves with a mink pom trim, knit fur mittens or fingerless gloves (perfect for long fingernails and the consummate texter), red or black leather long opera gloves (they look great with a fur vest!), and Italian designed leather gloves with pretty details. For him, the YF Collection offers a line of HANDsome shearling or leather gloves.
