Wearing a Denver fur coat, without looking over the top


October 9, 2019

Have you wanted a fur coat? But are worried you won’t be able to wear it without looking over the top? Perhaps you feel uncomfortable wearing it because it’s too fancy for your normal style. Don’t worry - we are here to help you style your fur coat in a way that will not only make you happy, but will have others green with envy this fall and winter. Here are some of our favorite tips, from your Denver fur coat specialists. 

Neutral Colors
Do you own, or are you looking at purchasing a neutral color jacket? Black fur is going to be far less noticeable, and dressing a black fur jacket with all black clothing will create a far less powerful statement. However, it’ll still look chic and will keep you warm and comfortable for the evening. Brown jackets are another great way to make a far less powerful statement, but we recommend avoiding white fur. White stands out naturally, and a white fur jacket will create a very expensive and chic look.

Keep it Basic
Avoid looking over the top by keeping it basic, and simple. What we mean by that is pairing your fur jacket with a pair of skinny jeans and very neutral colored heels, pumps, or wedges. A neutral colored blouse, ro even neutral colored t-shirts, will make the perfect pairing for this fall/winter outfit combination. Too cold for a t-shirt or blouse? Pair your leather jacket with a neutral sweater and you will be feeling comfortable all day long.

Pull it all together
Fur coats can look more expensive, and chic, when you have a lot of bold statement pieces at once. We recommend having one focal piece in your outfit, and ensuring everything else works together to compliment it. It’s also great if you compliment your fur coat based on the “era.” Have a vintage piece? Try pairing it with some lighter jeans and a string of pearls. This combination will create a chic statement without looking over the top.

Don’t get intimidated
Yes, fur coats can be intimidating. But don’t let it get the best of you! Wear your fur coat with confidence, you can and will rock that jacket. Just remember your overall goal - classy, chic, and simple!

Whenever you are ready to add a fur coat to your wardrobe, be sure to reach out. We are here to help. With a wide variety of leather (and fur) jackets at your disposal, we can find, or design, the jacket that’s perfect for you and matches your style.

“Fall” into a new Denver leather jacket


October 2, 2019

Fall is here, and it’s time to get in gear with a brand new (and perfect for you) leather jacket. Denver leather jackets are the fall must-have fashion accessory, and they can certainly elevate a look. While leather jackets can certainly be an investment, it’s well worth the money and effort to maintain a great looking leather jacket. Here are our five reasons why you need to invest in a Denver leather jacket this fall. If you already have one, why not get another?!

Versatile
Leather jackets are great for a number reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is because of their versatility. You can pair them with anything, particularly neutral colored leather jackets. When you purchase a leather jacket, always think about how you’d like to use your leather jacket. This will impact color choices, as well as the number of fixtures you have on the jacket itself. 

Youthful
Looking for an easy way to keep your youthful appearance? A leather jacket is not only the perfect accessory/complementary piece, but it’ll help you keep a youthful appearance. Let’s face it, we love a good accessory piece that helps us to look even a few years younger.

Comfortable
The longer you wear leather, the more comfortable it gets. Leather is known to “wear in,” making the jacket softer and ultimately more comfortable. A worn-in leather jacket tends to fit you better, and can create a slightly rugged look - which looks good on a leather jacket!

Timeless
Leather jackets are classic. A timeless piece that only gets better with age, a leather jacket will never go out of style. It’s versatility, comfortability, and a number of unique styles ensures that you can truly wear your leather jacket for decades to come.

Longevity 
Besides style, a leather jacket has longevity. It’s high-quality material can have it lasting decades as well. Normal wear and tear is nothing to a leather jacket, and as long as you take good care of it the leather jacket is well worth the investment. If you ever have questions about proper leather jacket storage and care, contact us at Jonval - we are here to help.

Whether it is your first, or tenth, we are here to help you pick the perfect leather jacket for your closet. With a wide variety of leather (and fur) jackets at your disposal, we can find the jacket that’s perfect for you and matches your style. Checkout the Jonval leather and fur gallery to view items available. Be sure to stop by and see us at 6880 E. Evans Ave. in Denver between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Fall is officially here - meaning there will be cooler temperatures, warmer clothes, and sporting a comfortable leather jacket. Finding ways to sport a leather jacket and jeans this fall doesn’t have to be hard...in fact it can be easy! The great thing about leather jackets is that you can purchase neutral colored jackets that fit with almost any shade of jean pants. Here are a few of our favorite jean looks to sport this fall with your Denver leather jacket:

Black Leather
Have a black leather jacket? Here are some of our tips/recommendations: 
Pull out your best pair of heels, pull on your black leather jacket, and a nice pair of black skinny jeans.
Wear a pair of black jeans, a black blouse, and black leather jacket for a chic, all black look. 
A relaxed t-shirt, paired with comfortable jeans can be dressed up with a motorcycle leather jacket. 
Want a throw-back look? Pair a striped shirt, relaxed jeans and a motorcycle-style jacket for a unique...but impactful statement.
Dial up the drama with a long flowy scarf, flare jeans, and your favorite black leather jacket. This look is perfect for creating a stand-out look, with throwback feels.

Colored Leather
Do you have a colored leather jacket? Don’t panic! There are still a few things you can do to style your leather jacket for the fall. Not only will you stay warm, and comfortable, but you’ll be ready to make a fashion statement in no time. 
Cropped jeans, a bold colored jacket, and an animal print make a killer combination for day time casual, or an early dinner date. 
Ooh...a white leather jacket? While styling with a white leather jacket can be a little trickier, it can also make a powerful statement. Wearing a white leather jacket with black jeans and a blouse not only looks casual, but polished. 
Pink leather jackets also pair nicely with black jeans, but the good news is it can also pair nicely with a classic pair of blue jeans.

Because of its versatility and softness, Chinchilla fur does tend to be some of the most expensive fur you can buy. Because of it’s expensiveness and comfortability, we recommend reserving any Chinchilla jackets for special occasions.

Beaver
Beaver fur is very versatile and long-lasting. While most of these coats will come in a natural brown, it’s going to be one of the most durable jackets that money can buy. Beaver jackets are perfect for those wanting a jacket they can wear out often. For those looking for a classic look, Beaver fur is the perfect solution.

Fox is one of the best types of furs for those looking for a few different color options or even for those wanting to purchase a few fur coats, all that have different looks and colors. Who doesn’t love a closet full of options?

Lynx
Luxurious and beautiful, Lynx fur is show-stopping. There are three types of Lynx fur you can commonly get - American, Canadian, and Russian.
