Spring is in full effect here on the east coast with summer not too far away. That being said, we all have those dayswhere we don’t know what to wear since the weather can range from the 50s to the 80s, but I have found my latest staple piece from R&B singer Tamar Braxton’s clothing line: Tamar Collection. I introduce to you all the Draped Belted Trench, a silky and light draped coat. Since I leave my house at 7AM to get to work, it’s still pretty cool on my commute and the trench works out great because once the heat from the sun beats down, I can easily fold the coat and put it in bag. With double-breasted buttons and a tie-around belt, this functional knee-length coat can easily transition from casual to formal. You can wear the trench over a dress with heels or with skinny jeans and sneakers for a comfy day look. I like wearing mine with a pointy pump!
The coat is currently on sale for $119, so make sure you go to Tamarcollection.com to get yours while you can. While you’re there, you can also check out the rest of line!

Autumn not only marks the start of sweater weather, but the launch of being able to wear outerwear once again. It’s time to push back those summer cardigans and jackets to make room for some serious warmth this season. Trenches, shearling jackets, faux fur details, robe coats, and duster coats hit the streets of New York during Fashion Week, marking new and welcoming outerwear trends for fall. The key to these frosty months is all about remaining both stylish and warm, a perfect combo for both the weather and yourself. No fashion don’ts or colds here! Coats and jackets this year are all about making a well-made statement from pastel colors to bold prints like houndstooth. Don’t worry about not being able to show off your exquisite outfit underneath anymore; let your outerwear do that for you while braving this cold weather.

Trench coats will forever be the classic fall outerwear no matter how many seasons of autumn pass by. The versatility trenches come in allows them to remain both effortless and timeless. Not to mention, they’re easy to wear through any fall weather, rain or wind. They’ve changed up a bit this year by opting for shades such as black or a dark green, thus making it an easy transition from summer to autumn colors. Trenches are now also being seen in a drapery style that was one of the top trends during New York Fashion Week.

The Shearling Jacket The shearling trend has made its reappearance once again in the fashion world, and we are welcoming it with open arms. There is no subtle touch about this trend; it’s always the main star in the jackets its on. Not only does it provide that extra cozy factor we’re all about this season, but it creates a complimentary texture on denim, cotton, or wool. There’s no such thing as being extra warm and fabulous when wearing one of these.
The Faux Fur Details Being able to wear faux fur once again is like opening presents on Christmas. It’s safe to say we’re full of excitement for this one! The plus of wearing coats with faux fur is that no animals were harmed in the making of them. Kudos for that! Faux fur details are another classic autumn trend that will never go out of style. The details provide a glamorous touch in both look and feel. Elizabeth Taylor much? We surely feel like her when wearing them.

The New Robe
A new catch on the fashion market comes in the form of our favorite homewear—the robe. The fact that it is now acceptable to wear in public is great news to all of us! The idea of the robe isn’t new in the fashion history books, but the variety of styles and fabrics it is popping up in are eye popping. From leather ensembled pieces to crisp wool structured ones, each robe coat is made to fit a woman’s body and create that sexy idea of walking around in one’s, well, robe. But in a much more sophisticated, elegant, and sultry manner, of course.

The Duster There is a new longer duster coat out for all of us to purchase for the fall season now. Its longer length allows experimentation for layering underneath. It has been most prominent in pastel colors that we will never be able to get over, and that’s okay! Soft pinks, light lilacs, and easy blues are happily welcomed into our closets with no hesitation. Just make sure your coat isn’t sliding across the floor! Essential Fall Fashion: Outerwear. Photographs courtesy of respective stores.
