Camel coats top list

So, as everyone who follows fashion even from the moon will know, this season is all about camel coats... For me, the perfect coat needs to be warm, soft, and well cut to avoid too much bulk, so which ones do I rank as my top 5?


5. DKNY peacoat - Great for week-ends and smaller frames, looks equally amazing with jeans and skirts. I think the colour could be a little lighter. A good pricepoint at around £295.



4. Opening Ceremony square coat - Also another one that would work well from work to week-ends, I like the details around the sleeves and collar. The only downside for me is the colour, which is just a little too light for my liking. Also a bit pricey at around £750.



3. Max Mara high collar coat - I love the collar and the clean lines of this coat, and the wonderful thing about Max Mara is that their coats are always top quality. I have a camel coat from their AW1998 collection which still looks amazing. Of course this gets reflected in the price: £940. But then again, this is real camel hair...



2. 3.1 Philip Lim belted coat - This is perhaps the one which most reflects current fashion, with its 3/4 sleeves and the zip details on the pockets, and the colour is near perfect. I'd wait for the sales though for this one: £945 is a bit ouch...



1. My pick: Joseph wrap coat - The one I ended up getting is this cashmere and wool wrap baby from Joseph. I love the wrap cut and had already bought the same last year in black, so I know this works for me. At around £500 I think this is a very good find.
