I’ve been feeling the urge as of late to upgrade my wardrobe and hone in on my personal style.
In a few short months I’ll be all of thirty-five and it seems like the perfect time to finesse my style to reflect this new chapter in my life.
I’ve spent some time learning more about fashion and how to put together different outfits to reflect personal style. One of the things that has resonated with me is to move away from fast fashion and begin investing in classic pieces.
One ubiquitously classic piece of outerwear that I’m obsessed with is the Camel Coat. I love how it elevates even the most casual outfit and makes you look instantly chic and effortless.
I never realized how critical a role outerwear plays in the overall aesthetic of an outfit. I was that person who literally threw on a coat just becasue it was warm. I’m realizing that one doesn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort or vice versa. When done correctly, you can have both.
I’m a big fan of the somewhat oversized silhouette that seems to be everywhere these days. I think that this trend will be around for a long time so I don’t mind incorporating it in this classic color palette.
My favorite piece is this menswear inspired Parke topcoat from J.Crew. I think it will be the perfect addition to my closet. as this shade will complement my skin tone perfectly.
There are a ton of options on the market with varying price points to suit every budge.
Here are a few ways to style a camel coat. Hopefully these images will inspire you to find a look that appeals to you.
