Looking for your next camel coat? You’ve come to the right place, as I’ve hand picked a small but mighty selection of timeless camel coats that will last you for years. I’ve always loved seeing new and exciting fashion trends emerging and thinking up ways to wear them, but there’s just something about classics that I can’t get enough of. They’re reliable, yet still sophisticated.
There are plenty of incredible Autumn Winter 2023 trends, but camel coats are just one prime example of a classic. While I love elaborate and eye-catching styles, I think it’s essential to have those pieces that never date in your style rotation. Investing in an item that will last you through seasons is a must. While it’s all well and good shopping for a trend that will last one season, it’s not good for the planet and doesn’t do much for your wardrobe either.
When I buy new, I make sure that I the purchase goes with at least five outfits that are already in my wardrobe. It’s not about shopping harder, but smarter – and camel coats fit effortlessly into my wardrobe without much thought at all. Whether you’re going for a belted style or a double-breasted version, camel coats are set to please. They elevate any type of outfit, from workwear to casual clothes.
Perhaps this is why the item has become synonymous with Parisian chic. Instead of shopping aimlessly, French women have a knack for filling their wardrobes with such items and teaming them together with ease. If you’re looking for more visual and concrete examples of their power to make anything look instantly chic, allow me to direct you to one of the Duchess of Sussex’s most iconic outfits. Meghan Markle was spotted with Prince Harry in New York wearing a lovely sleek MaxMara camel coat, which she paired with an LBD, black pumps and wide-frame sunglasses. It was a classy and classic outfit through and through.
