In my humble opinion they go with pretty much anything, ranging from jeans and a breton to over a LBD for a smarter look. The range of affordability is clearly never ending and I’ve seen some gorgeous ones in Jaeger and MaxMara but there you are having to spend at least £350 + so any purchase like that needs to left until the sales as far as I’m concerned. However there are still some camel beauties around where you don’t need to spend a fortune. Granted they may not last you for years and may also not be as warm as a 100% wool number but here is my selection of camel coats, of various styles, all for under 100 quid.
Clockwise from top left;
Windsmoor camel funnel mid wool coat £99 (was £249). I always associate Windsmoor with something my granny would have brought but again as my granny would have said, ‘it’s quality that will last’. And I think she’s right. I’ve got a couple of Windsmoor jackets from when I used to work in Sutton where my only shopping option was a crappy Debenhams and they’ve both lasted me really well. They also do great sales which I’m a sucker for.
Uniqlo tailor coat £39.99 (was £69.99). This is a traditional crombie style jacket which is probably my favourite. Uniqlo have some good quality bits. I’d wear this mostly casual, just jeans, poloneck and ankle boots.
Topshop wool slouch coat £90. A much longer length here that would gorgeous thrown over anything. I’m thinking leather midi skirt or a pair of coated skinnies topped with a sweatshirt of some description.
H&M camel coat £99.99. Just squeaked in under £100 and I like the cocoon shape with its more relaxed silhouette. I think the only downside of this coat is the midi length sleeves which no-one is going to thank you for when it drops below freezing.
New Look camel longline coat £26.24 (was 34.99). You’d probably need to try this to see if you can get away with a coat that is just so cheap. The colour is a touch too pale for me, I’d be covered in stains with minutes of having it on.
I will return with more expensive camel options but until then thanks for following.
