The chicest camel coats to keep you warm all year round

  • If you’re going to invest in one thing and one thing only for the upcoming seasons (or ever for that matter), make it a good camel coat. While it might seem a little early, trust me when I say now’s the time to buy one, especially as there are some incredible bargains around.

    The camel coat’s versatility and timelessness means it’ll be money well spent. Whether it’s thrown over an oversized suit, knitted midi dress or joggers and a sweatshirt, a well tailored camel coat has an inherent knack for making any outfit look expensive.

    Don’t be fooled into thinking camel coats are boring, because the style options are endless. You will never go wrong with the double breasted coat or the midi-length and buttonless belted version, however, this season it’s all about the more daring designs.

    I am loving the ankle grazing oversized look as seen on the catwalk at Max Mara and Fendi, but I’m also embracing all things casual. Whether that’s the long puffer jacket seen at Moncler or Brunello Cucinelli or the shearling-lined shell jacket at Stella McCartney. Tactile textures are another key look. Bottega Veneta’s fringe shearling coat is high on my wishlist, as is Max Mara’s teddy coat.

    If you’re on a budget, try the likes of COS, Arket and Boden. If you’d like something more trend-led, check out Mango, Zara and ASOS.
