CHICago: The Fall Fashion FURcast

Chicago fashionistas are celebrating the quickly approaching Fall Season’s arrival. A time for adding rich color, bolder silhouettes, layering looks with fab accessories, and searching for the perfect cooler weather coat in leather, cashmere, shearling or fabulous fur – oh my! York Furrier in the Elmhurst City Centre just wrapped up a two day photo shoot featuring a sampling from the store’s 87th Anniversary Collection. From behind-the-lens, talented Chicago photographer, Maria Ponce Berre, snapped exquisite images of this season’s MUST HAVES.


COLOR ME TRENDY As the leaves begin to change color and glam gals begin to pack away their floral summer dresses and bring out the darker tones, this fall season, everyone should keep the color party going! Be “COLOR COATED” in blue, purple, pink, burgundy, teal, or a mixed rainbow of happy colors. Pair your LBD or dressed down denim with a York Furrier cashmere short coat, a fur trimmed cashmere cape, a lightweight feathered fox jacket, or a reversible sheared mink walking coat - all in gorgeous colors. With city sidewalks as your runway, fellow shoppers and commuters will be asking, “Hue are YOU? And, what are you wearing?” The answer, “York Furrier!” of course. LUXE


LEATHERS & SHEARLINGS Always a classic choice for outerwear, this season, leathers and shearlings are updated with new treatments (brushed with a gold finish), bolder silhouettes (an oversize moto jacket), playful patterns (colorblock or striped), and get noticed hardware (big shiny zippers or collar cinching buckles). Innovative ways to perk-up your older leather or shearling jacket:

  • Add a pop of color with a fur trimmed hat, fur scarf, or colorful gloves
  • Pair with a jewel embellished belt
  • Toss on over a casual tee on top and plaid or camo pants on bottom
  • Wear with a pencil skirt and strappy heels
  • Don with leather leggings and a tall boot


CAPE CRUSADE Who said capes are only for superheroes? Fly into fall with this luxe look, which easily sweeps you from day into evening wear. Pair a fur trimmed cashmere cape with a dress, or dress it down wearing denim. Size doesn’t matter . . . a little v-style cape makes a big fashion statement when effortlessly tossed on with any outfit. While wearing a voluminous fox trimmed reversible cape will definitely transform your look from ordinary to extraordinary.


THE LITTLE EXTRAS Personalize your style story this fall with some key accessory pieces: detachable fox fur collars, lady like mink wraps, fox trimmed knit caps or leather trooper hats, colorful gloves created from leather or calfskin, and statement making fox and leather tote bags. Pair with your fall wardrobe tops, t’s, sweaters and dresses to up your style quotient.
