classic camel coats

Ashley Olsen wearing a camel coat

Ashley, you make it look so easy.  The girl has minimalism down to a science — all black attire, tortoise sunglasses, with a camel coat to finish it off.  An outfit like this is why she’s one of my fashion icons.  All black is easy to emulate, but finding that perfect camel coat is not.  For the last 13 years, I’ve had several camel coats in my winter wardrobe repertoire.  I’ve gone back and forth between a peacoat and longer trench-style.  I’m currently looking for something a little more oversized like Ashley is sporting.  Even though a new coat is a pricey investment, camel tends to stand the test of time.
