Preppy School Girl
Get this season’s collegiate look by pairing a camel pea coat with a pleated leather skirt and some hefty boots, as seen at DKNY. Add scholastic accessories, like a heritage-print scarf and satchel bag, to give the look a studious chic-vibe like Ali McGraw in Love Story.

Luxe Sophisticate
Nothing quite says refined luxury like a belted camel hair coat.  Go for all-out sophistication with coordinating extras like butterscotch boots, a menswear-style belt and plush cashmere underpinnings – all in similar tones, which Hannah MacGibbon championed at Chloé. Throw on some over-sized tortoiseshell sunglasses and you’re all set for Paris Fashion Week.   

Bare Minimalist
Derek Lam’s edgy take on the camel coat is pure uptown polish meets downtown ease. Wear it over the dress you picked up while in Berlin this summer by that underground designer. Top it off with a vintage chapeau – we love Lam’s equestrienne top hats. And don’t forget some bold footwear with plenty of height and hardware.
