A Camel In The Desert


Don’t stray from the camel coat in fear of looking too preppy, in fact, wearing the right one can actually be stylish and chic. 

The key is finding a nice wool or wool-cashmere blend in a camel color that will contrast well with navy, gray, or black. The perfect shade sits right between light sand and a dark paper bag. The one I’m wearing is by INC International Concepts.


Layering your camel coat with a crisp white shirt is great, but if you want to take your look to the next level, add a sweater to the mix. Turtlenecks are making a triumphant return and they automatically elevate the luxe factor on any look. Plus they add texture to your outfit and a layer of warmth, which you’re likely to need come January. A thick sweater is bound to make you look bulky, so for this kind of layering, stick to fine-gauge turtlenecks. The kind that rests easily under your coat, like the one I’m wearing here, also from INC International Concepts.
