Camel coat is a winter wardrobe staple that adds a little movie-star glamour. It goes alongside the leopard print coat trend – the one followed by Kate Moss and Miley Cyrus. Camel’s fan list includes: Alexa Chung, Kate Hudson and Blake Lively. The Hollywood’s leading ladies top off their outfits with gorgeous, investment-worthy coats in camel. Classic and chic, this cozy hue tempers Fall’s bold patterns and trends we have seen on the runway as of late.
Michael Kors says: “Camel looks indulgent like winter white but has the pragmatism of gray and black. It’s the best of both worlds. (…) A camel coat evokes throwaway glamour.”
Camel-coloured coat is a sign that today fashion is going back to basics. After all, warm honey hues work with everything and suit almost every skin tone. Except for one: if you are a blonde and if your skin is pale (“winter type”), you should choose colder shades of beige. Alternatively, you can still opt for camel accessories such as scarves, bags, and booties.
How to wear a camel coat?
During a frosty winter (like the one we have in Poland) look for a wool coat to stay warm and stylish. The most fashion-forward choice is a double-breasted camel coat which takes command in the military tonw (another winter must-have trend). I already bought such a coat and I must say I had probably searched whole eBay to get a suitable one. All in all, it kicks ass so it was worth it.
Consider luxurious fabrics, chic draping and menswear shapes. Try different forms: a straight cut (as seen in Jason Wu), a classic three-quarter length crombie, or a belted style that reminds of a dressing-gown (Max Mara). Find your perfect style and make the investment – a camel coat will be your wisest buy of the season and will stay with you through the years to come.
