Gone are the days where we could sport bare legs here in the northeast, but forever are the days where a camel coat is a great idea & super smart buy!
Classic & wardrobe friendly, it’s a shock that I went most of my life without a camel coat in my closet! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my top 5 reasons why I believe you should invest in a great camel coat if you haven’t already & hopefully save you from spending anymore time agonizing over finding a winter coat that looks amazing with practically everything you own!

1. They aren’t going out of style any time soon (or ever!)
Seriously. A camel coat is one of the greatest wardrobe investments you can make in terms of their timelessness and their ability to withstand trends.
Did you know camel coats have been around since 1919?
Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Princess Diana, Kate Moss & Michelle Obama are just a few of our favorite history making babes who have been known to rock the camel coat to perfection!
2. They’re neutral.

While shades of camel vary in contrast, this color “rectangle” is a great reference as to how camel has the ability to match well with pretty much every color in your wardrobe making it super versatile & completely worthy of making it’s way into your closet! I’m literally peering into my closet right now trying to find a shade that would not pair perfectly with a great came coat & I can’t spot a single one!
A few of our personal favorite camel color pairings: white, grey, burgundy, beige, navy, green, black, denim blue & blush!
3. There are so many designs & silhouettes to choose from!
Finding a camel coat that suits your personal style has never been easier–and they’re accessible at nearly every price point!
Our go-to camel coat of the season: the In Motion Coat by The Fifth Label.
WHY WE LOVE IT: I have a new obsession and appreciation for long coats after owning this particular coat. My 5’4″ frame kept me away from even trying on any outerwear that surpassed my knees because I just assumed I’d be swallowed whole 😆 What a lost opportunity that was! I’m so extremely happy that I gave The Fifth Label’s In Motion Coat a chance. Not only does it keep the majority of my body warm, but I feel so sleek in this coat because of it’s length, love the way it hangs on my body and find it to be quite flattering!
Another favorite feature: the exaggerated cuffed flared sleeves, which not only allow me to pack on the layers, but I can actually comfortably wear any bell-sleeved tops or dresses underneath, completely eliminating the mystery of how one is honestly supposed to layer with one of 2017 & 2018’s most popular trends in the colder months.
4. They’re flattering on all skin-tones.
5. You can dress them up & dress them down.
Whether you’re feeling extra sophisticated or like you want to keep it casual, camel coats have a way of pulling together ANY outfit.
Trust me! I’ve paired my came coat with anything from denim, to sweatpants to dressy jumpsuits and floor-length dresses and have felt nothing short of amazing <3
So, have we convinced you yet? 😉
