It seems that the cold has arrived and it’s time now to bring out of the closet the heaviest jackets.
If you don’t already have it in the wardrobe, here are 10 good reasons to invest in a camel coat. Now.
If we talk about investment, we need to focus on something timeless. And the camel coat is one of those items that never go out of style. You can wear it from early fall to the early weeks of spring. For more and more years.
IT COMBINES WITH EVERYTHING
Beige is the quintessential neutral color and easily adapts to all colors. Personally, I love him with the autumnal colors, but it’s great the contrast with black. For a more sophisticated look, match it with white or other neutral colors.
THE REAL ALTERNATIVE TO BLACK
Everybody complains about having wardrobes full of black clothes, but in the end we always choose them as if there was no another choice. But the alternative to total black is a camel coat, much brighter and even less obvious.
IT’S FOR ALL AGES
It’s a great classic of all time, yet fascinates across generations. It adapts to the more sober and clean looks, but also to the more contemporary and edgy ones. Only an evergreen of the wardrobe can be so versatile.
IT’S VERY ELEGANT…
I love it as an elegant item for work, on a jacket or a silk blouse. I think it’s also very pretty on a little black dress or a classic tailleur.
…BUT IT COULD BE ALSO CASUAL TOO
But it could be incredibly interesting even with sneakers, and jeans and in general on more casual outfits. It still maintains its charm and style.
THE ANTAGONIST OF DOWN JACKET
With the cold weather we don’t know how to cover up and we end up choosing the down jacket that, let’s be honest, will be hot, but it will never be a particularly elegant piece. A coat camel cashmere is another story.
IT’S SUITABLE FOR ALL SILHOUETTE
The camel coat can be declined according to your own style and silhouette. Thin women will choose structured neck or double-breasted coats, curvy women will prefer instead a smooth and linear coat.
IT’S SUITABLE FOR ALL HEIGHT
Same goes for the length of the coat, which suits the height of each of us. Coats above the knee are better for small women, and the ones below the knee look better on tall women.
IT’S THE PERFECT BASIS FOR ANY ACCESSORIES
Autumn is the season of the accessories and a camel coat is the perfect basis to match all kinds of them. Have fun with hats, scarves and fur collars.
If your colors are cold and you if think the camel color doesn’t doesn’t enhance you, don’t worry: try with a ice grey coat.
