On Trend Sophistication: How to Wear the Color Camel

When it comes to our wardrobe, there aren't many colors we would trade for our beloved black — but camel is quickly becoming one of them.

Similar to black, camel is a timeless, classic hue that is subtle enough not to overshadow the rest of our ensemble but also bold enough to stand on its own. Any staple piece we would wear in black — from a trench coat to a leather jacket to a suede mini skirt — we would undoubtedly wear in camel, thanks to its universal appeal and neutral tendencies.

Basically, make room in your closets because camel is the new black — and we have the most gorgeous camel-inspo to prove it.
