A new trend is arising in the streets of Manhattan, and that is the camel coat. Formerly New Yorkers are known for wearing dark colors and outfits consisting of black, this season that appears to be changing.
Camel is a color that looks great on every skin tone and has been a classic staple throughout the ages. I am not one for a colored coat so this is a great alternative. Available in a variety of styles such as the toggle coat or military it looks as stylish in the winter as it will in early spring.
Some may feel that this coat is too dressy for everyday wear but to the contrary I will show you how to wear it for three different events.
The first is an option you can choose for school or an internship displaying your camel coat.
In this outfit the coat is the standout piece. The black skinny jeans and stripe top balance the lightness of the coat leaving the outfit to look effortlessly chic. The beaded clutch adds texture and is enough to fit your ipad and car keys.
Next is the dinner or social function outfit.
A pea coat style coat is great for a night on the town when you might decide to wear a dress or a skirt. The coat length is long enough to make sure nothing of the bottom end is revealed and keeps you warm when wearing tights. It also looks very classy with just the right elements such a classic purse and shoes.
Lastly the casual get together.
At a moments notice you may decide to visit a family member or catch up with a friend. You need a coat that is no fuss but still looks great. That coat is the toggle coat. Easy to slip on and off the cut is usually waist length.
