Taking your wardrobe from autumn/winter to spring/summer can sometimes be tough. If you’re looking for a particular colour to push you through the transition, consider the camel spectrum. Think sandy beige tones; neutral, but still pigmented, ever so slightly.
Here are some pictures to inspire and show you how to wear Camel….
It’s “the colour that makes everything look more expensive”, claims the title of a Who What Wear article. I couldn’t have said it any better myself, because that’s exactly the vibe that camel colours connote. Luxury, not to mention the chic and effortless, are adjectives often used to describe an outfit that flaunts a significant amount of this shade. There’s a variety of ways to incorporate the colour into your outfit, especially during this “in-between” season, where it’s sometimes chilly, sometimes warm; neither very cold, nor excruciatingly hot.
If you feel like adding a pattern, go for leopard prints. They really work well with camel-coloured bases, not to mention they’re a cute ode to the current safari-style trend. If you’re headed somewhere cold, perhaps on holiday, a camel-coloured coat is a great investment. If you see a trench in the same tone, or even a light duster jacket or long tuxedo-style vest, buy it – it will be well worth your money. For an edgier piece of outwear, look into purchasing a suede fringed jacket in a tan colour – while its trend value may be short-lived, it’s a killer look for this season.
If you have tried and tested camel casualwear, and are happy with the result, raise the sophistication a notch, and use the shade for your next brunch or dinner look. Think about wearing a simple beige top with dramatic white flares or culottes, and throw on a chunky gold necklace as a finishing touch. If you can find a cute sweater dress or pleated skirt in camel, give it a try.
