The camel coat is one modern classic in your wardrobe that you will wear for years to come

The camel coat is one modern classic in your wardrobe that you will wear for years to come. It lends an air of chic urban sensibility in your closet. Over the years, stylish women like Jackie O, Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham have strengthened our belief in this classic staple.


The colour camel is easy to pair with all your day to night looks. Whether you are in your everyday basic denims and shirt, an off-duty model look in all black, or in your LBD, it completes the outfit seamlessly. Unlike your black, the coat works as a great transitional piece because the light colour allows you to easily take it from winter to early-spring.

The best part of a camel coat is that it can be styled perfectly well both as a colour and a neutral for your wardrobe. It acts as a cover-up for your minimal wardrobe of black, denims, navy and stripes. If you are feeling washed-out in your head-to-toe whites, add some colour with a camel coat. It also grounds the look, when you are playing with print-on-print (FYI: Try pairing up a camel coat with the classic leopard print).

If we have convinced you enough to add a bit of ‘neutral’ camel colour to your wardrobe, here are a few pointers to keep in mind when buying one 

Keep a check on the hemline. If you are tall, get one that falls right below your knees. If you are on the shorter side, go for one that falls right below your hips or shorter.
Keep the shape in mind. A masculine, boxy shape works well for this coat, as you want it to last for years.
Invest in a good wool or a wool-cashmere blend.


If you want to purchase a classic, get the 101801 Max Mara coat that has become the symbol of the brand after the style first appeared in 1981. We would also recommend a robe style cocoon coat from Isabel Marant. One can bring in some colour by pairing it up with a cable knit sweater. If you are looking at investing in budget friendly options, go for the high street brand Zara. You will also find a beautiful cashmere coatat Marks and Spencer’s.
