Long a staple for men and normally relegated to our Winter wardrobes, the camel coat featured prominently amongst women’s Autumn / Fall 2009 collections. On the streets, however, it proved impractical for the season’s coldest days and wasn’t worn en force until we were already on the verge of Spring 2010. But the late appearance of women’s camel coats has done them no harm. Instead, as fashion shifted its focus from blacks and greys the camel coat has proved the perfect layering piece for the cold days we’re still facing.
If you haven’t laid your hands on one already, do so: perfect for early Spring, you’ll be able to keep it for Fall 2010 as well.
Pick the length of the coat wisely though: long coats can add and subtract inches from your perceived height.
