Fall Fashion: what we're LOVING

CAMEL... a FABULOUS, yet often forgotten, neutral color that can be paired with just about anything!

I am loving the amount of camel (in various shades) that is popping up in the fall fashions....khaki and anything utilitarian/military inspired was big for summer and we can see that style continuing as we get closer to cooler weather.

Camel is a very versatile and neutral color for everyone's wardrobe
...it can be paired with black, brown, navy, white, and prints. Whether it is a basic camel/khaki trench coat, like the amazing one below from Anthropologie, a simple camel wool skirt, or a fun yet functional camel handbag, anyone can work a lot or just a little camel into their attire. *The handbag pictured below is just now finally available online, and is made locally by NELLE, check out her other pieces in her new HAROLD line as well as her fabulous clutches and accessories here.

a color for fall

In J.Crew's fall fashion photo shoot we see a lot of the color camel, as well as fur and the typical fabulous jewelry J.Crew has been known for lately. This is all thanks to Jenna Lyons, the creative director--now recently named President of J.Crew. Her fresh ideas and love of high end fashion has definitely given a new sparkle to what used to be a store that we thought was rather drab, and somewhat "too old" for us in our 20's. I have definitely become more and more of a fan of their clothing and jewelry in the last few years!!

How to wear CAMEL?? there are SO many ways...
  • wool camel skirt: white blouse, dark colored tights, dark brown heels, and lots of fabulous layered jewelry
  • camel blazer/jacket: silk tank or simple v-neck pocket tee, your favorite DARK jeans, and a pair of heels (any color--they don't have to be camel!)
  • traditional camel wool coat: the most neutral color fall & winter coat to wear over any color dress or skirt
  • camel corduroys: instead of the traditional dress pants for work, change it up--pair a fun, print blouse with camel cords and either heels or flats and you're set
  • camel accessories: instead of the same black belt and shoes, change it up--wear a camel belt and heels with your black dress or suit-it's a great contrasting color to add some interest to a simple outfit
How do you plan to work CAMEL into your fall wardrobe??
