Chicago winters are just like Canadian winters – bone chillingly cold, snowy, icy, grey and generally extremely unpleasant! If you’re a fashion buyer in Chicago, you know your store must carry winter accessories that are both fashionable and functional. As a Canadian fashion wholesaler that has been in business since 2008, we have extensive experience with wholesale winter accessories! Today we’re talking about the top 3 must-haves that you need to stock for the winter season.
Fleece lined hats, headbands, mittens and gloves
Have you ever bundled up to go outside in the winter but still felt cold? We know that feeling entirely too well so we’ve added incredibly soft fleece lining to many of our hats, headbands mittens and gloves for added warmth. Try a cable knit hat with a faux fur pompom, a neutral colour beanie, leopard print mittens or a knotted bow headband.
In Chicago, much like in Canada, it can be miserable and grey from November to March. It also happens that black and grey seem to be the most popular colours for winter coats and footwear! All those dark colours and lack of sunlight can make the winter season seem very depressing. Colour is a big trend for Fall/Winter 2019, and we’ve included lots of colourful merchandise in our seasonal collection including scarves, gloves, hats and bags. These accessories will brighten up your look and are sure to put a smile on your face.
Layering in cold climates is a must! Between being at home, in your car, in the office and outdoors, the temperature is constantly fluctuating. We carry lots of effortless layering pieces. Start with a sweater, then add a vest, light jacket or ruana, and top with your winter coat and a cozy oversized scarf. You’ll be ready for anything!
We encourage our Chicago buyers to take a look at our catalogue. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions. We’d be happy to help!
