Classic Camel Coat Over a Column of Black

Classics and neutrals have always been the backbone of my wardrobe. I find them the most cost-effective way to dress which allows me to wear pieces year after year. Today I’m styling a classic camel coat. All the other pieces of my outfit are classic too which makes it an easy look to replicate by shopping from your closet.

I started with a simple turtleneck. In truth, this one is very deep navy but as close to black as you can get. Nothing keeps me warmer in chilly weather so I wear them a lot.

I’m wearing them with my straight black jeans which I’ve had for years. Trends will change but a straight leg jean is always in style because… you guessed it, they’re classic. Mine have been washed more times than I can count but because they’re Talbots never-fade black, they are still pure black.

You may remember this scarf from several other times I’ve worn it. I fell in love the first time I spotted it. Then I waited and saved, and saved some more… before I finally bit the bullet and made the investment. Treasures are worth waiting for and I love it all the more for waiting. To be honest, I would rather have one fabulous scarf than 3 mediocre ones.

This dark turtleneck could be harsh against my complexion so I love how the scarf adds a pop of light. The pattern also picks up the camel from my coat, my complexion color, and has a few of my favorite blues.

I kept my jewelry extremely simple with just these twisted silver hoops which were a Christmas present from my daughter. I love them so much, I have to make myself not wear them every day.

My boots are plain and simple (similar boots)making them the perfect option to cover my ankles when it’s too cold for a ballet flat. Let’s not forget my hat. For me, they are an almost every day accessory. There’s no point in trying to treat sun damage and rack more up as you go:)

    I’m envious of your je ne sais quoi with the fedora. I’m comfortable with a hat at a wedding or a Kentucky Derby party or for sun protection, but I’m still a little bashful of anything else, other than a beret for bad hair days or outdoor warmth. Do you have some advice on how to ease into kicking up my style factor with a hat? And there’s that scarf again! It was worth every penny (pence). You are so worth it.

    I used to have a camel coat I loved. Since I seldom leave the house these days, I can’t justify replacing it. You look fabulous in yours!

    I love the look of a classic camel coat but my lifestyle just doesn’t warrant the investment. My version of the style these days is the camel color wool lined Carhartt ranch jacket! I liked everything about your outfit today.

    The look of camel and black is stunning but doesn’t go with my naturally shocking white hair, even with a scarf. I though have a similar white coat that would fit perfectly with the rest of your outfit.

    Camel coats remind me of my mom, who insisted a well dressed woman must have one or two. She was right and they’re my favorite for a classic, elegantly casual look. I love yours paired with black and your gorgeous scarf. xo

    As Zsa Zsa ( Gabor) would quip, “you look simply mar-velous dahling” …. 😌. Don’t have a camel coat myself but do have a blazer that is my absolute favorite and agree, ‘camel’ is classic!

    The look is so classic, I do remember having a camel hair coat years back and I always felt perfect in it. You look perfect for every occasion, especially with the hat.

    The camel coat is a timeless classic. It is so stunning on you and the black accessories just add to the style.
    That hat is perfect along with the scarf.
    Just gorgeous, my dear. 😀

    I agree with others. You look stunning in this combination. Scarf is beautiful addition as is your hat. I do wish I could wear a hat as well as you do. I’ve already decided those earrings are going to be my birthday present to myself this year! Thank you for your posts.

    Camel and black have always been a favorite of mine. My camel wool coat and camel trench have stood the test of time. Your scarf is lovely and I so wish I were able to wear hats! Alas, unless it’s a ball cap or a ski helmet, count me out.
