Southern-Styled Outerwear 2

Winter in Atlanta is always questionable. However, with the exception of a few winter storms, the weather still allows you to be fierce with fashion. Who said being bundled up has to mean a puffy coat and knit hat?

Fashion is a representation of who you are and should reflect your personality no matter the season. There are always trends that come and go, but stylish outerwear is a constant. A fabulous coat can be on trend for two to three years, or more!

For winter 2016, the design trends are all about the details. Think about updating your current outerwear wardrobe with simple changes to reenergize your look. If you have a well-tailored jacket, switch up the buttons. Wrap a new belt around a vintage dress coat. Tie a scarf into a new shape and add it as an embellishment more than something to keep you warm. Even pinning a colorful broach to a basic overcoat can spice things up. The details really do make all the difference.

J’Amy Tarr ( is a brand that is all about the details and creates a winter wow effect with her minimalist outerwear. Her fit, tailoring, and luxurious fabrics evoke modern elegance and glamour. The Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection is described as woodland wildflowers meet military precision.

Check out these three trends epitomized by this luxury designer.

Blanket Camel Coat

This coat made from a mid-weight brushed Japanese wool. It’s both comfortable and chic. The tie-fastening belt easily makes this coat figure-flattering and versatile. It comes in cream and navy, which slightly fades to darker towards the bottom. This adds an element that allows your eyes to follow the coat from top to bottom. All you need to add are black leather gloves and a simple hat to complete the look. Retail price: $688.

The Cape

Another elegant option for an Atlanta winter is the cape. The J’Amy Tarr cape is made from soft-brushed wool. It features a high collar with lambskin details and a silver metal buckle with a magnetic silver snap closure. This is the pièce de résistance of a fantastic outfit. A great legging or slim-fit pants with flats or knee-high boots would work well with this cape. It comes in multiple colors including black, navy, lightstone grey and forest green. Retail price: $538.

Funnel-Necked Jacket

This versatile jacket can be worn four ways (closed, half-zipped, one side zipped, and open) to create several unique looks. It comes in navy and black and is made from brushed wool. It features leather-lined welt pockets and an asymmetrical front zipper. Retail price: $598.
