Undeniably the colour of Autumn/ Winter 10 has to be camel, whether it be softer neutral tones, warm caramel hues or sandy desert shades, everyone needs to invest in a camel number this season.
Coats, dress suits, dresses and camel separates like skirts and city-shorts are the perfect staple items for any camel inspired wardrobe. However even if you are not used to wearing these colours do not fear camel is easier to bring into your A/W wardrobe and work with your individual style than you think.
Depending on which camel piece you invest in will alter how you wear it. If you opt for a camel skirt or pair of shorts wear them with a plain black top and cardigan, statement gold jewellery or pearls. To add more colour to your outfit team with a printed blouse in a cream or emerald-green. If you prefer a camel suit, dress or coat remember to match with similar colours for under tops and shoes, but add contrast with accessories like scarves and jewellery. Again it is best to wear camel with black opaque tights for a simple look but a printed pair can work if you want to stand out from the crowd. Flats or statement heels will also work depending on the occasion. However mesh your palette – do not clash, this trend is about looking effortlessly chic. And if you are still not converted then try a camel scarf or bag to work into your new season wardrobe, there really is something for everyone with this trend, from the daring to cautious everyone can look stylish and up-to-date in camel.
