Camel coats have become something of a staple over the past few years and for good reason. Universally flattering, easily styled, effortless sophistication and not to mention so, so cozy—need I say more? Camel was by far the star color in MaxMara’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection, and Gigi Hadid’s clutch coat instantly inspired me to ditch the standard, black winter jackets and opt for something a little more interesting this time.
This warm, wool camel coat is the ultimate outerwear piece to bundle up and battle the cold with, whilst still looking chic and put together. As neutral and versatile as camel coats are, I think they make for a perfect day coat—particularly on those chilly afternoons. They really can go with just about any outfit, whether it be a fancy dress, work attire or your favorite pair of jeans. Not only that, but they truly are the ultimate coats for layering too. When worn over something like this super casual combination of overalls and white sneakers, it can add a touch of missing elegance to an outfit.
Now, let’s focus on what’s underneath the coat. For this look, I combined a pair of light denim overalls with a boxy, striped long sleeved crop top. I also chose to rock some of the most iconic and reliable shoes around—that’s right, Converse All-Stars. If you’ve never owned a pair, I definitely recommend investing in some! All of these pieces make for an insanely comfortable outfit—perfect for a day of running errands or hanging out at a friend’s place.
