The Camel Coat

If you’re in the market for a winter coat that’ll transition seamlessly into spring, look no further. Camel coats are classic, sophisticated and timeless. You can style them in so many different ways.

NYC was a balmy 50 degrees today so I jumped at the opportunity to style my Andrew Marc camel coat with some light layers. I picked up this coat at Lord and Taylor over this past Thanksgiving break. Between the Black Friday deals and numerous coupons provided by my mother, the coat came down to $100 from it’s original $275 price point.

The slate gray, cashmere sweater is from BCBG. It’s lightweight yet warm and fits nice and loose. It’s also super lived-in and cozy; like all the best sweaters are.

Believe it or not, these jeans are from Abercrombie and Fitch. Crazy, I know.  Abercrombie is known for their impossibly tiny, leg-constricting skinny jeans but these actually have a really relaxed and comfortable fit. A&F jeans are great for those of us with lanky legs and not a lot of booty. This medium wash, high-waisted pair fit me like a glove and have great distressed detail. Gotta give A&F their props for these.

I kept accessories simple with my dark green circular crossbody from Matt & Nat, my cherry red Doc Marten arcadia loafers, and my everyday gold jewelry. These loafers might just be my favorite shoes ever. You’ll be seeing quite a bit of them come Spring.

A camel coat is a great investment piece because it’s so classic and easy to style. It makes any outfit look chic and put-together.  It’ll become a staple in your winter wardrobe.
