Camel is an earthy tone, I can easily describe it as the browns. Now we know how they look like, right?

Since camel is considered as a fall color, it looks best for outerwear like coats, blazers and knits like jumpers and sweaters.

Also, it is good for bottom wear like pants and suede skirts. Great bottoms are of skinny silhouettes than airy ones; like: skinny pants and pencil skirts.

Camel shoes are also adorable and easy to maintain, right? Especially when they’re flat ankle boots.

And what do you think about a camel bag? Well, it’s a must-have! And I mean, who wouldn’t want one?

How To Wear Camel

  • When dressing up the color, consider earthy tones as well like orange or different hues of brown. Or, consider neutrals like blacks and whites.
  • If you opt for to wear camel in a full ensemble, then let it be suited. As in, it looks best when a full suit is in the color.
  • Be proportional when balancing your look. Do not over-layer unless you want to look like an Eskimo but be subtle. This will help you avoid looking too bulky.

      Glad you’re loving the color too and perhaps, it could be child-friendly depending on the pieces you put together. I mean, who wouldn’t love a pair of camel ankle boots? That’s such an easy option for anyone.

    Camel doesn’t look amazing on me, but it looks great with your skin tone! And I adore the classic jacket. It will be useful for years to come! πŸ™‚

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      That’s so true Jennifer. I’m definitely keeping my camel staple so well for time to come. Wonder why it won’t look good on you as you say? I think it depends with how your pair; blacks will always spice up any camel outfit. You could try that for sure. Hugs!

  5. jhilmil says

    I love camel colour, but I wear very less of these colours thinking that they don’t suit me. Looking at your fab choices, I think, I need to give them a try once again.

    Camel is so lovely! I love that coat on you! I don’t actually have any clothes this shade of brown but I’d definitely be willing to wear something this colour. Great post! πŸ™‚

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Oh Nicola. How bad…but I think you’d want to try it out in darker hues of camel and prove yourself wrong kinda…please find time and look at Macy of on Instagram. She wears camel like she owns it. You’ll get inspired certainly.

  7. Ami Rose says

    Camel looks gorgeous on you. I really don’t think it suits me. I bought a nice camel jacket last year but I’m yet to wear it. I may have to dig it out and see.

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Thanks Ami. But I don’t think everyone should e fearing camel. Just try it and you’ll love it. Darker shades of camel will look good on you and pair with neutrals. Try that for sure. Thanks for stopping by!
