I have fallen deeply, madly in love with camel clothing this year. (I’m actually wearing a knit camel sweater as I write this blog!) You’d think I’ve never seen the rich color before. There’s something so dashing about it that I adore for daytime wear. It exudes an air of practical elegance, which I absolutely love. Instead of grey and black, this buff color is the perfect hue to update your wardrobe with. Not only is this golden-beige tone a universally flattering color, it also lends a romantic feel for fall and winter. Camel is also incredibly versatile and it can be worn year-round. Who knew?
One of my favorite things in my closet right now is a nude-colored oversize chunky knit cardigan. I wear it with everything–jeans, maxi dresses–you name it… Lately I’ve been loving head-to-toe camel. It’s a fun way to work the monochrome trend while adding a little length to your torso. Camel pieces also look fabulous paired with bold look-at-me garments, like the red pants and beige top in this photo.
Personally, I think it’s best to invest in camel pieces with minimal silhouettes. Streamlined looks are easier to work into your closet and it will keep you looking fresh and elegant. Pair a camel coat with a pencil skirt and glossy heels for a polish office look, or work a taupe dress with black tights and a bold lip for a night on the town.
Think of camel as the new black. Wear it with everything–stripes, color, neutrals, prints… When you’re working with buff, the possibilities are endless!
