It’s so easy to do your duty and look fabulous in this season’s coolest hue; buttery soft, melt in the mouth camel. Think classic tailoring in the most luxurious fabrics and you’re almost halfway there. Inspired by the likes of Stella McCartney and Chanel, camel oozes opulence and adds instant class to your Autumn wardrobe, especially when teamed with pared down seamstress style tailoring. Take this season’s essential camel coat, timelessly elegant and so glamorous. It’s the perfect wardrobe staple that will hold your hand season upon season, year after year.
A similarly wise investment is a classic belted trench mac like this Love Label military coat chosen by style editor Coleen Rooney. Classic chic that works the trend for neutrals with seamstress details. Style it with jeans for casual weekends or slip over a smudge print dress and statement accessories for a dressier look for lunch with the girls or evenings out.
For tall girls, good news is that the camel maxi coat is right up there with the catwalk heroes and will show off your amazing height without making you look stringy. The longer lines elongate and accentuate curves while shorter, cropped jackets are super leg lengtheners. Add a beret for a bit of on trend vintage French fancy or try with knee high boots and statement pearls.
Grey is perfect with camel. Softer than charcoal or black. Team tailored harem trousers with layered or sheer tops in seasonal grey, black or white. We love the cute camel sweaters with designer details paired with flattering stretch trousers for day or on trend pencil skirts for evening. With a hint of cashmere in the mix there’s something so luxurious about owning a super-soft pullover in this warm, biscuity shade.
In fact, all tan tones are utterly versatile. You really can wear warm neutrals from head to toe. So keep feet dancing to the same song sheet with our on trend tan brogues which look fab with these heritage trend new season shorts for a snug Autumn Winter 2010 look in the office.
Don’t forget you can work the luxury camel trend with clever accessories. Grab an animal print clutch or a fabulous cable hat and scarf set or a snug snood. How will you be wearing camel and easy neutrals this season? Please share your style tips here too…
