If you're not feeling fur this season, we totally get it. But if you're still on board, PureWow Chicago has the scoop on some locally made accessories that could make your winter a little warmer.
Chicagoan Christina Fan makes fur accessories that are far from stuffy. Her fox collars are in sunny hues of fuchsia and marigold, while her hand-knit rabbit beanies have whimsical ears sewn on top. How to wear the pieces? Fan herself recently got hitched in Shanghai, and accessorized her cream dress with a lavender fur stole. The editors at PureWow, meanwhile, plan to wear the blue infinity cowl with neutral-hued sweaters.
And psst: if faux fur suits you better, check out these gift suggestions from Fox Chicago.
