Trend - How to Wear the Camel Coat Winter 2010

“Camel looks indulgent like winter white, but has the pragmatism of gray and black. It’s the best of both worlds. ... A camel coat evokes throwaway glamour,” says Michael Kors.

Trend: Camel Coat
Designers: Alexander Wang, Chloe, Dries Van Noten
Where it with: Denim, Gray, Black, Stripes

The Camel Coat is more than a trend it's a wardrobe staple and has been for years.  Check out this ad for a pure camel hair coat from a 1930's newspaper......

I would wear this today wouldn't you?  Yum! A true classic!  And I agree with Michael Kors.  Every time I see someone, man or woman, in a camel coat I think they look very put together and well off.  The Camel Coat really can be worn in any style from disheveled rock chic like Kate Moss to the sophisticated nautical look of the far right photo. When shopping for your Camel Coat think texture and what fabric is best for your climate and body shape.  

To be honest with you, I don't own anything that is camel colored, but after researching this post, I am going to be on the look out for my new neutral, camel.
