Fall Fashion 2020: New Styles for a New Season – SHOP the YF Collection NOW

Even though the Spring/Summer of 2020 will be one for the record books and some REALLY interesting Personal Journal entries, FALL is on its way with a Fresh Start, a New Perspective, and of course, some absolutely Fabulous Fashion. For Furs, Fine Outerwear and Accessories, you MUST visit York Furrier in the Elmhurst City Centre or at YorkFur.com/shop to find your NEW OUTLOOK NOW! 

With most working from home and a more casual lifestyle, the York Collection New Arrivals pair perfectly with leggings, denim, and understated glam looks for when you FINALLY dine out or enjoy a patio party with friends. This Season, York Furrier’s extensive selection features toss-on-and-go leathers for him or her; a colorful array of capes, wraps, and ponchos; versatile (and sometimes reversible to rainwear) sheared mink walking coats; fluffy fur-trimmed shearlings; and a fun and whimsical collection of beaded handbags to brighten your day and your wardrobe.

Leather Weather

You simply MUST HAVE a leather jacket to wear with EVERYTHING in your wardrobe! You’ll find that a leather jacket is definitely a smart investment – one that will pay-off year after year every time you toss it on. Key points in selecting your new wardrobe essential include:

  • Material – choose premium lamb leathers that are butter-soft and supple.
  • Style – find a silhouette that compliments your shape. Despite a few extra COVID pounds, resist the urge to purchase an oversized swing style. 2020 and beyond calls for a simpler, more classic design.
  • Fit – the York Design Team will perfect shoulder width and sleeve length.
  • Color – while an attention-grabbing colorful leather is always a fun wardrobe addition, don’t overlook a not so basic black, brown or neutral shade that will pair easily with a t-shirt and jeans as well as one of the season’s grand designer gowns (predicting that your Spring 2021 calendar will be power-packed and calling for a leather casually tossed on with a floor-length dress).
  • Details – design artistry incorporates ruching, patterned pieces, embossed finishes, decorative hardware on collars, closures and cuffs, as well as luxe fur trims and embellishments.

Updated looks include a more feminine version of the moto jacket, a polished button-down blazer, the knee length topper, and a zip-up patterned walking coat with high-low hemline.

Super Capes, Ponchos, and Wraps 

From a simple shawl casually draped over your shoulders to a dramatic reversible fox trimmed cashmere cape that makes the grand entrance, the York Collection offers an assortment of noteworthy silhouettes to transform your outlook from ordinary to extraordinary. Choose from a palette of beautiful colors. Go bold - fuchsia, marigold, cobalt, or lipstick red. Or, opt for a softer shade - lilac, lavender, baby blue, pink, snow white, and oatmeal - all perfect for pairing with any outfit. Add a little extra - alpaca or fox fur, some glam pearls, or a tassel or fringe trim border for the perfect finishing touch. If you’re feeling patriotic, elect to don the Fall Fave “Be Sure to Vote” red, white, and blue poncho. View more New Arrivals at YorkFur.com/shop.

Take a Double Take at 2-in-1 Styling 

The reversible sheared mink walking coat ups your fashion game with its hide and sleek design. For errand running on rainy days, flip to the rainsilk side for a rain repellent city slicker style. Go for updated urban glam by reversing and revealing the oh-so-soft-to-the-touch sheared mink side. This is casual luxe perfected! Choose one of the YF New Arrivals, or, peruse the York Collection styles in-store for inspiration . . . and work with the YF Design Team to Restyle an old mink coat that’s been hanging in the closet or the family heirloom you received from Great Aunt Joan! Stodgy to Sensational, transform an unused full length ranch mink coat into a super wearable sheared mink reversible walking coat. Owning a double-duty design, you’ll definitely be looking forward to inclement weather – bring on the rain, sleet, snow, or an all-out blizzard!!!

Cozy Comfort in Shearlings 

Moto, Bomber, Pea Coat, Parka, Walking Coat, or a down to the ankle Sweep Coat. Whether it’s a shaggy rustic style or a tailored classic look, for him or her, a shearling fur garment should definitely be a staple in any fall/winter wardrobe. Toss on a shearling from the YF Fine Outerwear Collection and you immediately transform your look. Long on style, this effortlessly cool and chic material – choose from sueded or leatherized Shearling Lamb - also offers optimum warmth and a durability that surpasses plastic-infused man-made fibers. Making a shearling jacket the perfect outerwear garment to literally where everywhere!

Accessories – Little Extras Make a Big Statement 

Where to begin? Every Designer, Every Collection, Every Runway, Every Fashion Editor’s Blog was filled to the brim with Head to Toe Accessories for the 20/21 Fall/Winter Season. Let’s cover the highlights – the pieces that you will FUR SURE want to wear.

From (and for) the top, HATS ranged from FUN bejeweled and fox trimmed knit caps (with matching fur trimmed fingerless knit gloves of course!) to LADY LIKE Parisian style tams crafted from colorful sheared mink. Sporty or Chic, the look is pure HATitude!

For the perfect blend of form and function, drape, wrap, or tie-on a FUR SCARF. With a modern approach to this style classic, fashion influencers around the globe are sharing lots of love for this season’s easy-to-wear stand-out accessory. The YF Accessory Collection includes fur scarves created from a mixture of fur types in multi-colors with a plethora of design details – fringe, ruffles, woven, knit, or twisted. Worn with a sweater to transition into the new season, or layered inside or outside your winter coat for style and warmth, it’s not a question of if you need a fur scarf; it’s how many should you have!?! 

Let your personality shine with an attention generating BEADED BAG. With an artistic flair, these bags feature 3-D images of a tiger, an airplane and passport, pink flamingo, cocktail glasses, bumblebees, a tiki bar (perfect for a visit to Hala Khaki in River Grove!), even a champagne bucket. Other options include an envelope clutch adorned in a colorful fern pattern with optional use gold chain to carry draped on your shoulder or use as a crossbody bag; the perfect bag for a trip to wine country or the wine bar (see you at Tannin’s in Elmhurst!) – a box clutch with decorative bunches of grapes also with a beautiful beaded chain to drape over this season’s colorful ponchos; or carry the romantic yet edgy black leather top handle bag with red leather handcrafted roses and stud embossed LOVE & XOXO messages. Whichever you choose, you’ll certainly get noticed.


While the pandemic has caused hands to be covered in utilitarian cream or plastic blue colors, once the Fall Fashion Season is in full swing, opt instead to protect hands in a pair of York Furrier’s more fashionable knit or leather GLOVES. From starlets and royalty to singers and socialites, wearing gloves has provided fashion with some of its most iconic moments. Personal faves are opera gloves a la Marilyn Monroe’s pink opera gloves dripping with diamond bracelets or Holly Golightly’s (Audrey Hepburn) elegant black satin gloves with her classic LBD and stylish shades. From the YF Collection, gloves are embroidered, embellished, colorful, and crafted from the finest lamb leather, cashmere, or calfskin. Styles range from fingerless knits to wristlet leathers, and the go on forever leather opera gloves.
