I have an absolute style crush on an item – a camel coat. The colour, the texture, its timelessness, the fact that it adds an element of sophistication to any outfit while keeping a hint of casual flare (you know what I mean).
After desiring a camel coat for years, I finally bought one from Topshop at the beginning of this winter. Every morning when I decide on my outfit for the day, I always end up going back to this coat of mine… It has been a constant struggle to not wear it every single day!
The reason why I love this type of coat is because of its versatility. Last week I wore my coat to class in the morning as well as a job interview that afternoon, while being appropriately dressed for both occasions! After class I only applied some lipstick and traded my New Balance sneakers for a pair of ankle boots and I was ready for my interview.
We have all seen and envied the Gigi Hadids and Cara Delevinges of our world for their flawless outfits. I know I have. And I can promise you that one of these timeless coats can make you feel a hell of a lot closer to that. I know that now.
I have added some pictures that I have in my street style board on Pinterest from which I drew the most inspiration.
Have a look and enjoy.
