Fall into this season with the most wearable trend of all – camel. Hot as can be right now, the classically chic color will take you through the crispness of fall into the cooler days of winter. A color for everyone – though not to be mistaken for “nude” – camel can be worn as a bold statement piece for the cutting edge trend setters or simply incorporated with accessories if you want to start out slow. To help you wear the look in ecofabulous style, we’ve scoured the ecosphere to find truly classy and covetable camel.
A gorgeously cut camel coat never goes out style. Hessnatur’s short trench coat (left) is made of camel hair collected during the molting season. Free from artificial dyes, the luxurious coat is finished with turn-up cuffs and patch pockets ($438). The hemp herringbone double-breasted Swerve coat from Naturevsfuture (middle) gives a little twist to the classic trench. The tailored waist and asymmetrical collar make it easy to say adieu to summer and flaunt through fall ($435). Argentinian line, Cubreme, has modern-classic coats (right) made of organic and natural wool threads, though in order to try them in person, a trip to Buenos Aires may be in order.
For a little (or big) arm candy, look no further than this season’s beautiful camel carry-alls. All are made with either reclaimed or vegetable-dyed leather. Noon Solar’s Armitage (left) will take you from workday to weekend and everywhere in between ($459). With long straps and a super-soft hand, Erin Templeton’s reclaimed leather Hobo (middle) is the perfect evening companion. For a tailored take on the slouchy day bag, check out Ashley Watson’s Small Sora (right), lined with a hemp/cotton twill ($375).
Try out the trend by incorporating a few basic accessory pieces. Stewart+Brown’s military style hat is made of 100% boiled merino wool; cozy, comfy and stylish for unruly winter locks ($98). When in doubt, polish any outfit with a Braves belt, like the Birget style shown ($100). Their leather is vegetable-tanned and heavy metal free. For transitional weather, keep a set of fingerless gloves on hand. These camel hair gauntlets from hessnatur are made of unbleached, undyed camel hair in Mongolia ($28).
