When summer arrives it generally means that it’s time to put your heavy fur coats and hats in to storage. For some of us this is an emotional time, having to say goodbye to our beautiful furs for several months is not easy. Don’t stress too much over this because there is a way for you to still wear fur even when it’s not sub zero temperatures outside.
Fur handbags are the ultimate accessory, absolutely glamorous and chic
You’re not actually wearing this fur so your body will not be affected whatsoever by the extra warmth fur provides
There are many styles of fur handbags available, from small clutches to large totes
Fur handbags are easily accessible for purchase, no need to search high and low to get one, they are fairly easy to find
Heels with fur trim or detail has become a rising trend over the past year
Many top designers featured fur heels in their runway shows
This is a perfect way to still enjoy fur in the summer without overheating or looking like a crazy person wearing a fur coat in the middle of summer
There is a right way to do a fur vest in the summer and a wrong way
Don’t wear a heavy fur vest with lining and thick fur, this will only cause you to overheat
Do wear a light fur vest, a knit design is perfect because it allows for airflow
Consider a shorter fur vest over a long bulky one
Lighter colored fur looks more appealing in the summer over a heavy, dark fur that is better suited for colder weather

- cleaning with soap and warm water works for small stains and smells
- spot clean using a moist soft cloth and cleaning solution
- start by cleaning on the outside area and work into the center in a circular motion
- use a dry cloth to apply pressure and remove excess moisture
- use wire brush to bring fur back to its original state
NOTE: If fur is too dirty to spot clean, have it cleaned by a professional fur cleaner. Any local furrier who deals with fur products or a local dry cleaner who is familiar with fur cleaning will work. Refresh your fur every so often with a glazing treatment from a local furrier. Glazing cleans the fur and also replenishes oils to maintain a furs longevity.
SUEDE & LEATHER
- cleaning with a clean dry towel works for small stains and soil
- remove stains or marks by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
- brush your suede with a suede brush with soft bristles with wire inserts
NOTE: Only rub suede in one direction. If suede or leather is too dirty to spot clean, have it cleaned by a professional leather cleaner.
- shake out wet or damp fur
- hang it to dry in a well ventilated room
- once dry shake it again and comb or brush fur gently if the hairs seem a little bristly
NOTE: Don’t panic if your fur gets a little wet, most furs can handle snow and light rain. If your fur has been soaked through you should immediately take it to a furrier for proper treatment. Excessive heat will cause the leather/fur pelt to harden and shrink. DO NOT tumble or force dry. Air movement while drying is recommended.
SUEDE & LEATHER
- pat dry with dry clean cloth
- hang it to dry in a well ventilated room
- use protective spray to re-coat the suede or leather product
