We've got our eyes on this season's outwear must-have - the camel coat. Check out our favourite available on the highstreet right now...
Winter is fast-approaching and we’re already thinking ahead to the new season styles, but there’s a part of us that just can’t bear to embrace padded coats and scarves just yet. Luckily, our attention has been captured by a new season inbetweener with all the warmth of a winter coat, and the fresh style of an autumn favourite.
Black may be a wardrobe update, but it can also look dreary and tired. This season, we’re switching it up and swapping our usual boring black coats for something a bit lighter. Think of the camel coat as a new swap for last year’s coat – not just a special-occasion buy. They work for almost anything – from day-to-day work to weekend wear and even an evening cover-up. Just choose a style that you love and that suits your style and shape, and you’ll look gorgeous and classy with ease.
Celebrities such as Liv Tyler have been showcasing their camel coats for a while now, and we want in on the action! Not only is this buy warm and stylish, it’s as easy to wear as your go-to black. Pair yours with everything from the 9-5 uniform to comfy weekend classics, and give your wardrobe an instant update.
Step into the new season the stylish way, and check out some more of our favourites to suit every budget and style…
