You know I had to reach far back in my closet to pull this post off. I haven’t worn this coat (from Sarah Jessica Parker’s short lived ‘Bitten’ clothing line that I lived for, by the way) in a year so. I kind of had to reteach myself how to wear a camel coat. If you ask me, a camel winter coat is a staple. So unless it has holes in it, there’s really no reason to buy a new one. However, if you don’t have one, I suggest you get your hands on one, STAT. Modest budget? Thrift one. Or rock your mom’s old one that she no longer wears. You ever raid your mom’s closet? Whether she’s a self proclaimed fashionista or more low key, she’s got some gems in there. Do yourself a favor.
Anyways, when it comes to wearing a camel coat you want to treat it like it’s an accessory. The hero piece. The color is a neutral, so it really goes with any outfit. You certainly want to pay attention to the length of it. If it’s shorter, it’ll be more casual. If it’s floor length, it’ll certainly be more formal. Medium length is ideal because you can wear it for any occasion.
I opted for a more casual look. I wore a black oversized sweater with boyfriend jeans. It was a nice day, but in typical February fashion it was still very cool. But for the sake of my sanity, I opted for something other than boots or booties and decided to bust out my tricolor T-strap heels from ZARA. If you’re going to wear a laid back outfit like the one I’m wearing, I love a pop of fancy in the accessories – be it shoes or jewelry. Today, the fancy is in my shoes.
