As the leaves turn and cooler winds blow through cities and towns, fashionistas everywhere are gearing up and getting their closets ready for the new season. This fall, one of the hottest looks sweeping the runways is camel. Seen collections from Michael Kors to Stella McCartney, camel is dominating collections through jackets, pants, and dresses. Make sure you get in on the camel action, as it makes a great feature or accent color to add to your wardrobe.
One of the best features about camel is its versatility. Camel can be dressy or casual, modern or romantic, day or night. Additionally, camel can be paired with a wide array of accent colors, including black, mocha, white, navy, and cranberry. Or, add another hot color into the mix and pair your camel with grey or silver tones for the fall. Camel portrays an image of elegance and sophistication. Women that were often seen in natural hues include Jackie Onassis and Audrey Hepburn, both of whom represent timeless, classic style.
Dresses are a great way to work camel into your attire. For a classic, work-appropriate look, check out Ralph Lauren’s belted mock neck wool dress, found at Saks Fifth Avenue. Robert Rodriguez’s collection offers another stylish fall camel dress, found at Bergdorf Goodman. For a more budget-friendly option, check out Victoria’s Secret cotton turtleneck dress, available in camel. These dresses create an easy, head-to-toe camel look. Add a few accessories in your color of choice, and you’re set!
Another hot item found in camel is the jacket. From military to formal, camel coats have been spotted everywhere. Diane von Furstenberg offers a felt coat, with a creative silhouette and funky pockets, found at Bergdorf Goodman. Express carries a fun, girly, military-inspired camel wool coat. This updated trench brings camel alive and makes it a great addition to your wardrobe. Jackets are an easy way to sport this hot color- camel coats easily pair with everything from dresses to jeans to slacks. Additionally, camel coats can be found a range of styles, which makes it simple for everyone to find the perfect piece.
Finally, if you’re a little uneasy jumping into the camel trend, grab a neutral toned accessory to complete your already-favorite fashion. Handbags are the quickest way to do so. Check out Coach’s Mia Leather bag for a classic piece that will be in style for years. For a more casual look, try Marc Jacob’s Lil Birdie bag in the color Saddle. Boots are another way to easily work camel into your wardrobe. Piperlime offers some great options, including Kenneth Cole Reaction Youngstir and Fossil’s Tawny Mid. These boots will keep you going all season. Change up your look with the same pair by mixing them with different lengths of skirts, or tucking into skinny jeans or leggings.
Any way you choose to wear it, camel is certainly the color of choice this fall. It will mold easily into your style and look great on all ages. Even better, it can work year-round, so the pieces you get now will last you forever!
