Fur and Metallics: The Newest Fashion Statement?

Morris Kaye fur accessories in DallasIf you’ve been following the fashion world as closely as we have, you’ve undoubtedly witnessed the tidal wave of innovative trends that have unfolded this year. If so, we hope you’re just as excited as we are! Fur couldn’t have resurged at a better time. We plan to devote quite a few of our blog articles to covering the newest and hottest fur-related trends as they arrive (as well as advice on how to take care of real fur, so you can incorporate it into your ensembles for this year’s trends and beyond.) In this article, we’ll cover a particularly hot style to arrive this spring: combining fur and metallics. How can you get in on this look, and why is it making waves? Keep reading to find out!

Celebrity-Style Glamour

So, where exactly did this particular look come from? Sources indicate the famous Jennifer Lopez may be the originator, or at least have cast an especially bright spotlight! In 2015, the immaculate actress was spotted wearing a blush top with shiny, matching bell bottoms. Over the top was a plush fur coat of the same shade, complemented further by subtle, but glimmering, makeup. You can get an up close glimpse of this look by watching her appearance on Jimmy Fallon, as she wore the outfit during an appearance there. On top of the fabulous silhouette and color choices, we really admire her outfit’s retro flair! It also proves you can creatively pull off metallics without using any actual metal—which is good news especially for those who may be interested in this look, but also deal with metal allergies.

Furs and Metallics with Brogue Shoes

Real fur accessories aren’t the only apparel to undergo a revival as of recent years. Brogues—a type of shoe very similar in style to Oxfords—are also enjoying a surge in popularity. Fashion show models have been spotted striding down the runways in metallic pants, jumpsuits and jewelry, combined with chic brogue shoes and light fur jackets. You could easily pull off this sort of look on a breezy spring day!

Skirts and Fur Neckwear

If you’d like to look especially glamorous for a day, why not pair your favorite basic top with a metallic skirt and your best piece of fur neckwear? We recommend a collar, shawl or—for the daring—a long scarf. One of the most appealing elements for this type of ensemble are the color possibilities. You can easily find lighter types of real fur accessories in a wide assortment of colors and patterns, making it much easier to mix and match. Don’t be afraid to experiment, whether with this outfit suggestion or with combining fur and metallics in general. The sky’s the limit!

Our team at Morris Kaye & Sons is 100% dedicated to helping you look fabulous. That’s why we’re the number one source for fur accessories in Dallas. Whether you’re looking for new fur apparel or are interested in investing in better care for the pieces already in your wardrobe, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Who’s Releasing the Hottest Fur Fashion Designs?

Morris Kaye how to take care of real furIn the fashion world, there’s rarely any shortage of unique, creative designers constantly spinning out innovative work and inspiration for fashion lovers around the globe. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been keeping a close eye on each and every new release, especially where fur fashion is concerned. How does our beloved material fare this year? We’ve compiled a list of some of the hottest designers to be found, and how they’ve contributed to the world of fur fashion and real fur accessories.

Versace

Gianni Versace is and has always been a huge name in the fur world! The company continues to make waves this year through their sleek and stylish designs for real fur accessories. One of their hottest pieces is a fur coat, form fitting and of medium length. You’ll not only love its plush, all black material, but its wide lapels, swishy skirt and perfectly cinched waist. This piece is incredibly slimming, and long enough to be worn as a dress all on its own, if you wish.

Another noteworthy Versace fur is a coat in a similar style to the aforementioned one, completely bedecked in blue and layered into an appealing pattern.

Fendi

Fendi is another brand you can rely upon for excellent fur accessories. We love their overcoat, which closely resembles a classic, vintage fur. Think of a short, plush piece, light in color and decorated with thick, darker striping. It could easily fit well into any ensemble! Fendi has also produced a longer piece, made on the outside of thin, grey fur. A longer, grey-brown fur sits at the shoulder seams for a one of a kind, visually interesting contrast. Best of all, the collar and inside of the coat are made of a dense black fur, combining coziness and couture!

Dolce & Gabbana

We couldn’t top off this list without mentioning D&G! Their designs have been some of the most unique we’ve seen this year. Picture a form fitting fur coat, white and patterned with beautiful grey and black leopard spotting. It cinches at the waist with a beautiful leather sash, and peplum flares out softly from it. The piece de resistance, however, is the top of the coat: fluffy and grandiose, like collar of a majestic bird! This particular fur coat is perfect for those looking to really turn heads on a flashy night out. However, Dolce & Gabbana has also released plainer pieces that will suit casual settings.

While these designs are certainly amazing, you can find equally great pieces just by shopping for fur accessories in Dallas! At Morris Kaye & Sons, we strive to provide only the best fur fashion and related services to fur enthusiasts in the metroplex. You can rely on us for all of your fur related needs, whether it’s how to take care of real fur or restyling it into something dazzling.

How You Can Make the Biggest Statement With Your Fur This Spring

Morris Kaye real fur vestThere’s rarely any shortage of innovations or breakthroughs in the fashion world. As long time participants, we’ve seen thousands of trends glimmer in and out of prominence, like stars in the night sky. A real fur coat, however, is one star that will never burn out! In fact, fur is enjoying quite the resurgence this year, with one of its main styles being statement furs! In this blog, we’ll give you the scoop on just what statement furs are and how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe this year. Read on to learn more!

What Are Statement Furs, Anyway?

Statement furs are very much what their name implies: furs that make a statement! More specifically, statement furs are brightly colored pieces designed to stand out against the rest of your ensemble and catch the eye of passerbys as you carry our your day. Statement furs can be found in just about any color imaginable, and brighter is always better! Some of these pieces of apparel combine multiple hues into one bold, amazing pattern. No matter what particular style you pick, you’re sure to be one of the best dressed people on the street.

Suitable for Any Gender

When most people think of fur coats, the first image that comes to mind is a luxurious woman bedecked in a fabulous real fur coat and dazzling jewelry. However, there’s just as wide an array of fur styles out there for men as there are for women! The same goes for statement furs. Best of all, furs don’t have to be limited to special occasions. Guys: picture yourselves striding down the sidewalk with a suave long coat draped over your streetwear. This type of outfit is not only perfect for a chilly day, but will make you look cooler than cool. To help your coat really stand out, you may consider wearing neutral or dark shades for the rest of your outfit.

Contrast Is Key

Since it’s called statement fur, you should coordinate your outfit to make sure your real fur vest or coat becomes the centerpiece. Again, consider making dark or neutral hues the main color for the rest of your outfit. You can layer your coat over the rest of it to make sure it catches the eye. The ideal statement coat could be a stark white or something bright and flashy. Be sure to pay attention to shape as well! If your fur is particularly thick, you may want the rest of your outfit to be sleek and form fitting so as not to clash.

Don’t Be Afraid to Be Bold!

Above all else, you don’t want to be afraid to take risks with your statement fur. The entire point of wearing such a fabulous piece of fur apparel is to turn heads and stand out! This is the perfect chance to experiment with flashier styles if you’ve always been the more modest sort, or introduce a new color into your wardrobe. You may like the new pizzazz it brings!

At Morris Kaye & Sons, we specialize in real fur storage and apparel. You can always turn to us for help with your fur fashion needs. Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about what we do!

Four Ways to Outfit Your Home With Fur Fashion

Morris Kaye fur restylingAs great as fur apparel is, there’s more to the world of fur fashion than just clothing! In fact, there are as many ways to utilize fur as you would any other fabric out there—including in your home decor. Home decor has gradually been gaining popularity as a fur restyling method, and is finding its way into homes across the country and the world. How can you join in on this chic trend and lend your home an extra dash of style? Read on for a few tips on furniture to look for!

Seating

A fur chair can easily lend a bit of extra “oomph” to a room’s seating arrangement! Fur seating comes in a wide range of styles, meaning there’s no shortage of great options to choose from. Don’t forget to keep space in mind as you shop around! You don’t want to splurge on something amazing only to realize you don’t have room for it.

If you’re decorating a more casual (or compact) space, you may be pleased to learn you can easily obtain fur-clad folding chairs! This type of seating is not only comfortable, but small enough to fit in just about any space. It’s also portable, so you can bring it with you if and whenever you like. Alternatively, you can also find stools, office chairs and even lounge chairs bedecked in sleek, fine fur.

Pillows

In terms of real fur accessories for your home, pillows are great for adding a bit of subtle embellishment to your decor. You can easily find fur pillows in a wide range of fur types, colors and patterns, making it no trouble to find something that will fit in well with the rest of your furniture. A plush fur pillow is also remarkably more comfortable than the average fur pillow. We think it’s the toastiness of the fur!

Rugs

Fur rugs are perhaps the most classical type of fur decor. You may think immediately of those old bearskin rugs thrown along the floor of a wooden cabin. Fortunately, bearskin rugs have fallen out of style. However, you can find other (headless!) pelt rugs to decorate your own flooring with. Like fur pillows, rugs come in a wide array of styles.

Blankets

Fur blankets can perfectly complement those fur pillows you bought, or work perfectly well on their own. Toss one over the back of your couch or use it as bedding; you’re sure to enjoy the aesthetic! We can’t think of a cozier way to enjoy a night in than huddling up under a fur blanket or other real fur accessories with a cup of tea or coffee and making a dent in your Netflix queue.

No matter what your needs may be, Morris Kaye & Sons is the perfect resource for fur styling in Dallas! We offer fur apparel and services at prices you won’t be able to find anywhere else in the metroplex. We want to help you look and feel great in the fur you wear. Be sure to contact us to learn more about our services and sample our inventory!

What to Look for in Your Fur Handbag

Morris Kaye fur accessoriesOne of the best aspects of fur apparel is the sheer amount of options you have as far as incorporating it into your wardrobe. In fact, since there are so many options, you may need or want proper education before you go shopping for the first piece for your collection. Fur handbags have become an especially popular way for fashionistas to introduce fur fashion into their wardrobe. However, before you rush out to nab one of your own, there are a few important elements to keep in mind as you shop. Here are some of our best suggestions for picking out the fur handbag of your dreams.

Style

No matter what kind of fur accessories you’re looking for, you deserve to go home with something you like! Take a look at the rest of your wardrobe and try to make sure you pick something that fits well. If you’ve spent some time ogling other people’s fur outfits, try to think back on some of the styles you found especially appealing. It should be easy to find something you like and think looks amazing, regardless of your actual tastes. There are a myriad of looks out there for fur handbags, meaning your search should be both easy and fruitful!

Details

Are you looking for a fur handbag with patterns or solid colors? Do you want dyed fur or something more traditional? These are the types of questions you’ll have to ask yourself as you shop around. Many fur handbags come with many of the same details you’d find in handbags of other materials and textures. Some of the most popular ones might feature leather detailing, studding or anything else you can think of. You’ll never know unless you search!

Color + Texture

For many, the look of any accessory or piece of clothing is the most important aspect—especially when it comes to how to wear real fur! Textures and colors can vary wildly among different types of furs. For instance, rabbit fur is much more likely to be dyed, but won’t feel quite as soft as plusher types of fur, such as mink.

Measurements

Fur handbags come in as many sizes as they do styles! Naturally, certain bag sizes are more suitable for certain occasions. Consider what you’re purchasing your new fur handbag for. Are you looking for something for a formal occasion? In that case, a smaller bag may be ideal. However, if you’re on the lookout more for something for every day use, a bigger bag is likely to be your speed.

An all too seldom considered element you should also keep in mind is your own stature. If you’re on the petite side, a huge fur handbag may seem to swallow you. On the other hand, large people with tiny bags may find themselves wanting for something more sizable. It’s always a good idea to experiment until you find something that works.

At Morris Kaye & Sons, we care about your style just as much as you do! We strive to help you look your absolute best in the highest quality furs available. Be sure to visit us today to sample our inventory and learn more about what we have to offer!

Could Fur and Leather Be the Newest, Trendiest Combo?

Morris Kaye real fur jacketSince the dawn of apparel, fashion lovers have searched and strived for new and interesting ways to wear their clothes. With fur undergoing a revival this decade, it’s undoubtedly been on the list of several fashionistas across the world and has starred in numerous unique combinations. One of the best and latest we’ve come across is fur and leather. These are two amazing, animal-based fashion pieces that are as versatile as they are trendy. In this blog, we’ll cover some of the hottest fur and leather combinations we’ve seen so far, as well as how you can make them part of your wardrobe!

Leather Skirt + Fur Collar

This particular method is perfect for busy work days and a great idea for those just learning how to wear real fur. To pull off this look, all you need is a top of your choice, a leather skirt of any length and a short fur collar. While you could easily go with just about any color combination for this outfit, we suggest sticking primarily to neutral hues. The leather skirt will add plenty of character and elegance to your ensemble, while the fur collar adds just the right touch of subtle uniqueness. Combining textures has long been a highly suggested styling method in the fashion world. If you’re looking for new ways to get in on this trend, this suggestion may be worth a try!

Leather, Velvet and Fur

This idea may, at first, seem a bit like overkill. How could you possibly combine all three of these textures without looking over the top? Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and our suggestion may be the perfect way for you! The key is moderation. Pair any top or blouse you like with leather bottoms, be it a skirt, leggings or anything else. You can layer a fur vest or real fur jacket over your top, and work in the velvet as another part of your ensemble. Velvet is gaining increasing popularity as a texture for footwear and bags, so you could incorporate it through one of these means. Regardless of how you mix and match these textures, it’s sure to create one brilliant style!

All-in-One

Some designers have taken the bold route by combining fur and leather into one piece of apparel, such as a jacket. While this particular style may be a bit on the risky side, the worst risks are those we never take! You can wear a fur and leather jacket just as you would a jacket made only of one of those materials. Mix and match as much as you like! If you decide to buy a jacket like this, however, be sure to invest in some high quality professional fur coat cleaning to keep it looking topnotch.

If you’re looking for new and unique ways to wear fur apparel, or to learn how to wear real fur to begin with, Morris Kaye & Sons is the number one resource to turn to. We are not only equipped with plenty of tips on fur fashion and care, but we also have a full stock of high quality fur apparel to keep you looking good.

Our Best Tips for Wearing Fur Collars

Morris Kaye real fur accessoriesOut of all the real fur accessories on the market, fur collars seem to be the least popular of the bunch—which, in our opinion, is a real shame! Fur collars are some of the most versatile types of fur apparel. The only issue is the majority of people aren’t sure how to work them into an outfit nearly as easily as they would a fur coat. If you find your interest swaying toward fur collars, but you aren’t sure how to incorporate this fabulous piece of apparel into your current wardrobe, you’re in luck! In this article, we’ll discuss some of the best and fiercest ways to wear fur collars year ‘round.

Replace Your Winter Scarf

As you get dressed and ready to face the winter cold, you may reach for your trusty scarf simply out of habit. Why not switch it up a bit? There are far more options out there to keep warm and still look stylish! Consider trying out fur collars next winter instead of relying on your scarf collection. They’re guaranteed to look great, no matter what else you’re wearing that day.

Pair It With a Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets are already well known for the attitude and sharpness they bring to just about any ensemble. You can easily add a bit more pizzazz with the help of a fur collar! The next time you have a spring concert to go to, consider embellishing your look with a gorgeous fur collar looped around the neck of your bomber jacket. You’re sure to stand out among the crowd in the best possible way. You might even earn the attention of your favorite performer!

Experiment

One of the best aspects of fur collars is their flexibility. You don’t have to worry about how well they’ll combine with the rest of your clothing. They really will work well with just about any setting and outfit style you could think of! Are you planning a casual outing with friends? Fur collars can add a bit of visual interest to your ensemble. Getting ready for a flashy night out on the town? A fur collar can add just the right touch of elegance to your formalwear. With a bit of searching, there’s a type of fur collar to suit every occasion.

Don’t Forget the Details

When it comes to wearing fur, you must always pay careful attention to its details. Fur collars come in as much variety as fur coats. You can easily find them in a wide variety of sizes, fur lengths and colors. If you don’t already own any fur collars and would like to add them to your wardrobe, be sure to take these details into account as you shop around. Certain styles of fur collars will look better with the apparel you already own than others.

Whether you’re looking to buy fur apparel or simply learn how to take care of real fur, Morris Kaye & Sons is the right resource for the job! We pride ourselves on our commitment to providing only the best services for fur lovers in the state of Texas and beyond. Contact us to learn more about what we offer.

Make Thrift a Thrill: Four Ways to Obtain Real Fur on a Budget

Morris Kaye how to wear a fur coat casuallyThere’s no denying times are hard. The cost of living has risen dramatically over the past decade, while working wages have not. This can make it incredibly hard for some to afford even basic necessities, let alone indulge in their hobbies and interests. However, at Morris Kaye, we believe everyone should have affordable access to the things they love—which is why we strive to offer high quality fur apparel at the most affordable prices around. If you want to learn how to wear a fur coat casually, but stylishly, all without breaking the bank, here are a few tips to get you started.

1) Budgeting Is Key

If you’re on a budget, don’t ever ignore it! It’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially where your finances are concerned. Sit down with your bank information and look at your account and other financial information. From this you should figure out exactly how much you can afford as far as leisure goes. You can use this money to invest in a new piece of fur apparel, or even a bit of fur restyling for an existing piece you already own. You can easily find fur apparel in a wide range of styles for as little as $100!

2) Shop Around

You don’t want to necessarily buy the first fur coat you see that fits into your budget. It’s never a bad idea to look around at different shops and marketplaces and weigh your options. Quality is just as important as price! Beyond this, there’s such a wide variety of different types of fur coats in today’s market, so you don’t want to risk missing out on something uniquely perfect and well within your price range.

3) Consider the Type of Fur You Want

What style are you going for? Are you looking for something to suit your usual look, or are you in the market for something totally different from your normal tastes? The specific style you’re after is quite significant, as what you wear is ultimately a reflection of you! You should always take your own tastes into account as you shop for new fur or fur restyling, alongside your budget. You will definitely find a myriad of styles out there that will also fall well within your price range. It all comes down to knowing how and where to look.

4) Check for Quality

You’re in the market for real fur, not copies! Be sure to test whether the types of fur coats you’re interested in buying are the real deal. There are many ways to do this, but quite a bit of this information will come to you as you shop around.

Don’t disregard any coats you find with slight damages. In some cases, it is easier and cheaper to buy a slightly worn coat and seek out repairs later, if you can’t conceal the damage yourself. Often the coat will still be perfectly fine, even if it isn’t in mint condition.

At Morris Kaye & Sons, we make high quality, real fur our business! Get in touch with us to learn more about our services and sample our inventory.

Cowgirl Fashion and Fur

Morris Kaye fur restylingWhen most people hear the word “cowgirl,” they often picture the typical boots (with or without spurs), lots of denim, flannel and ten-gallon hats. However, cowgirl fashion is far more than that! It’s also a great vehicle for fur. In this article, we’ll cover some of the best ways to add fur and real fur accessories to your cowgirl wardrobe—and utterly rock it down on the ranch!

Fur Jackets

Much like their non-furred counterparts, fur jackets are lighter versions of the standard fur coat. They’re also one of the most perfect real fur accessories for those early blustery mornings. Best of all, they can be paired quite easily with just about any other part of your wardrobe! Layer your fur jacket over your coziest sweater with a pair of jeans or, for dressier occasions, over a cute casual dress!

Ombre Fur

While ombre is usually reserved for hair dye, it has also made quite the splash in the textile world. You can find them in all manners of styles and colors, but the most popular form seems to be dark-to-light vests. This look is not only useful for chilly work days, but is also incredibly stylish! You may even find yourself reserving your ombre fur vest specifically for nights out on the town. If you want to look especially chic, consider wearing your vest in combination with your favorite dress and a sleek pair of boots. For days where you have to dress down, your vest may pair better with a top, jeans and sturdy shoes.

Regardless of how you wear them, we think ombre fur vests are a great way to get started in terms of how to wear real fur, and should blend well into even the fiercest cowgirl’s wardrobe!

Fur Trim

Some people prefer subtlety, while others want to transition slowly into fur rather than start off with a 100 percent fur item. Luckily, fur trim is an excellent alternative to going all out! You can find fur-trimmed clothing in a variety of colors and patterns, making it quite easy to find something that will fit with your existing wardrobe and tastes. Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple to allow the fur trimmed piece to shine.

Animal Print

Animal print is a bit controversial in itself, at least from a style perspective. It’s regarded by most fashion enthusiasts as either incredibly gaudy or wonderfully trendy. We think it can be pulled off well with the right know-how. Consider pairing your animal print fur with a simple outfit. This will help your fur to stand out and minimizes your chances of having it clash with the rest of your ensemble.

No matter your particular tastes, we at Morris Kaye & Sons believe there’s the perfect piece of fur clothing out there for everyone! That’s why we specialize in all things fur, from fur restyling to storage and more. Feel free to contact us to learn more about our services and sample our current inventory.
