Camel, Part 1


It’s very early in the morning (can’t sleep), so I’m just going to get right to it. Camel is one of the strongest colors influences you’ll see this fall. As an indicator, Chloe devoted nearly an entire collection to the color. If you were only going to buy a few pieces this entire season, you’d be right on target if you grabbed a piece in camel.

The smart part is that camel is a timeless neutral, so if you decide to splurge on a coat or luxurious pant suit, it’ll be something you can keep for years to come. Even if you’re ho-hum on beige, still look for a chunky knit, a skirt or go-to pair of pants and then add in another color. Some people can wear the color from head-to-toe, but if it’s too much for you, break it up with one of the other all-star players of fall 2010: red, leopard print or gray.

Today, I’m going to focus on coats, because if you were ever going to buy one in camel, this is the season for it. If you already have one in the closet, this is the time to bring it out and wear it, wear it, wear it. Lucky you! If not, here are some stellar options in several price ranges.
