I know that everyone is falling all over themselves to be the brightest and most colorful this fall, but I really think that you can't go wrong with a classic pairing, like a wool blend and soft camel color. Almost any style or silhouette - trench, shawl collar, cape, swing - is going to be the perfect polish to any outfit. Besides, you can always toss on a pair of jewel-tone pants (I like the yacht blue or the bright dahlia) to brighten up the look.

Tip: Look for a vintage fur collar - like this one - to add to your coat in the chillier months. This saves you the $$$ you'd spend on a new coat with fur // you can transfer it easily to other sweaters and coats // and you can find a variety of real or faux, plush or sleek, light or dark

I haven't had a camel coat in years - it is definitely time again! Will probably have to go with one of the "save" recommendations tho - but love them all.

I'm trying to act sane this fall with the coats since I have a brown one and a charcoal one but I've been dying for the camel last fall and again last spring. And now I'll just have to pretend I've never seen this post... :)

^^ If it makes you feel any better, I have like 10 coats + I just ordered the camel one from JCrew! I think it's some kind of sickness - I can go into any store and find a coat or jacket that I "need" to have, lol!
