Wardrobe Staple: The Camel Coat


A camel coat is a cold weather must for all women of style substance. Style bloggers show us how it's done by combining the classic with rich colors and wearing it with both weekend and work wear ensembles. One of my favorite things about this classic coat is that whether you pair it with boyfriend jeans or Louis Vuitton it still looks equally chic. 


Coats are investment pieces, so it's important to make sure you find something in a quality material that will stand the test of time and weather. Luckily, camel color coats are classics in themselves, so you can buy something with trend worthy details like leather sleeves or motorcycle inspired zippers and still where it for winters to come. While Max Mara camel coats are known as the ultimate, there are plenty of more budget friendly bets for your wallet.

I have to admit, my coat closet is a see of black, but I'm determined to change that very soon. What do you think, have you added camel to your coat repertoire yet?
