5  Reasons Why You Need A Camel Coat

When it comes to coats, trends come and go, but the camel coat is the one coat that stands the test of time. Classic and chic, a camel coat is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet. Much like the classic black pump, a camel coat will go with just about any outfit, for any occasion. You can look effortlessly chic just by throwing on a camel coat over whatever you are wearing. Of all the coats I personally wear, my camel wool coat is the one coat that gets worn the most. I actually have more than one camel coat in my closet, as each piece offers it’s own take on a classic fashion staple.

A Camel Coat is Timeless

The first reason why you need a camel coat, is that a camel coat really is a timeless piece! When you decide to invest in a camel coat, you are buying a piece that will be in style for years. A quality piece such as a camel coat should be something that you should be able to pull out of your closet and style with whatever you are wearing.

A Camel Coat is Versatile

The second reason why you need a camel coat is is versatility. Versatility is the ultimate benefit of a camel coat. Camel is one of those neutral colors that goes with just about any other color. Here I’ve styled it with a white top and jeans.  A camel coat looks just as chic with a darker palette such as black (see how I styled camel and black here). Style it with red and you have created a stunning fall outfit. Style it with hues such as navy or purple, and the contrasting colors will be just as striking. Mix it with patterns such as florals or stripes to add visual interest to your look.

A Camel Coat is Suitable
For Any Occasion

Dress it up or dress it down, a camel coat will be that classic finishing piece to any look. A camel coat is chic enough to wear out for a night on the town, yet casual enough to wear with any weekend look (see my weekend casual look with a camel coat here). A camel coat is even a perfect look for work. Wear it with chic pants, a dress, or even a pencil skirt and blouse. I wear my camel coat to work at least three times a week in the fall and winter.

A Camel Coat Will Elevate Any Outfit

A camel coat will instantly add polish to any look. Camel is a color that adds class and elegance to any outfit. Wear a camel coat with a t-shirt, jeans and loafers and you will look instantly stylish. Wear it with any basic sweater or dress, and you will also look just as chic! Very few wardrobe pieces can add style to a look the way a camel coat can.

A Camel Coat Can Be Worn Through the Seasons

The final reason why you need a camel coat is it’s seasonality. A camel coat isn’t just for the winter, but is appropriate for the fall and spring too. Wear it with a light sweater with jeans, or even a dress in the fall. Wear it with a nice thick turtleneck and scarf for the winter. In the springtime wear it with a t-shirt and pants. A camel coat really is one of those wardrobe pieces that can pretty much be worn for most of the months of the year.
