People may say what they may, but sophisticated, ladylike camel goes beyond seasons and trends. A timeless investment, camel adds instant luxury and refinement to your outfit. And with the onset of autumn proper, there’s no better time to wear it. 

The picture above is from Chloé’s AW11 show. And does it look at all dated? Didn’t think so. Over the years, camel has cemented its place as an autumn/winter mainstay. And with its many virtues, no one’s complaining. Particularly now, camel pieces will blend seamlessly with your wardrobe as well as with all the new season trends, including leather, leopard print and rollnecks. Hands-down,  what camel does best is become a neutral canvas – an efficient way to accentuate more standout details. Try a camel piece with a red lip, oversized sunnies or a leopard print clutch and you’ll see what we mean. For inspiration, look no further than Christy, Miranda and Carine…
