Think of the camel coat like the LBD for fall. Throw it over any old thing you’ve got on and you’re insta-chic. Of course, we’ve got some thoughts on the perfect way to show off fall’s must-have item. For a mod-ish dressed up look, perfect for a dinner date on a brisk autumn evening, consider donning your camel coat over a simple shift and thick black ribbed tights (spring for Wolford’s if you can afford it), and black booties. If you’re on your way to work, try it with wide leg tweed trousers with a strong seam and some simple flats. And on a lazy weekend, while you’re out admiring the foliage (or running a quick errand before returning to the couch to watch some Lifetime movie marathon—we don’t judge!), camel goes perfectly over beat up skinny jeans and knee-high flat boots.
