When it comes to outerwear, no style is more classic than a camel coat. The camel coat has firmly entrenched itself in fashion history, earning itself a permanent spot on the wardrobe must-have list, from yesteryear’s Hollywood stars and First Ladies to present period style icons (Meghan Markle, we’re looking at you). The warm sandy colors of this design standard are sophisticated and flexible, readily pairing with, well, anything. A camel coat adds a final touch to any outfit, whether it’s layered over a chunky knit, jeans and a tee, or your favorite WFH sweatsuit (yes, even sweatpants). And, with winter on the horizon, there’s no better way to beat the chill while also looking trendy as hell. For good reason, the simple camel coat has long been regarded as a hero in the world of outerwear. It has tremendous wardrobe staying power because it is chic, flattering, classic, and flexible. That is why so many fashionable people rely on them, and why you must choose the best camel coats that will work hard for you. This is where our advice comes in. We’re not the only ones who love the classic coat. Year after year, the most stylish street style stars and influencers opt for the classic coat over other striking options, proving that this universally adored garment remains the ultimate investment piece. Numerous brands specialize in this type of expensive-looking outerwear. For example, Max Mara is well-known for its many variations on the camel coat. On the high street, we’ve discovered that some labels are particularly adept at producing things on a shoestring budget.
