Ever since I scored this Reiss camel coat in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’ve wanted to do a camel coat roundup because it’s such a wardrobe staple. A camel wool coat will never go out of style, and creates a sophisticated and put-together look every time you slip it on. The best part about this style of coat is that it goes with casual and dressy looks. Today, I’m rounding up my favorite camel coats and sharing tips on how to style a camel coat.

How to Style a Camel Coat
A camel coat is a fall wardrobe staple. When you’re purchasing a camel coat, always double-check the material to get the highest percentage of wool you can afford. That is the material that keeps you warm without a lot of bulk. If you get a coat with barely any wool percentage, you’re buying it for the look of it verses a functional warm coat.
Style with Skinny Jeans
An easy casual look to wear a camel coat with is skinny jeans and a white button down. You can pair boots, loafers, or mules with skinny jeans to complete the look. This would be perfect to wear to the office on casual Fridays.
Style with Ankle Boots
Style with Faux Leather Leggings
To add a little texture to the overall look, wear faux leather leggings with your camel coat. The leather against the wool is the perfect fall fashion duo. The Spanx faux leather leggings are my favorite, and you could do a monochromatic black outfit underneath the camel coat. You could wear this for a chic travel day with casual white sneakers to look put together on the go. I reviewed the best white sneakers in this post.

Style with a Turtleneck Sweater
A turtleneck sweater looks great under a camel coat because you can still see it if you have your coat on. Plus it provides extra coverage for your neck on the coldest of days. Pair a turtleneck with a faux leather skirt and knee-high boots for a flirty date night outfit.
Camel Coat Outfit Ideas
Earlier in the post, I talked about styling faux leather leggings with your camel coat. This time, I’m doing a monochromatic look with the brown leggings, coat and pumps. You can pair a white sweater or white bodysuit underneath to complete the look.
Bring your Juliette cardigan to work styled with these gorgeous trousers. Business professional doesn’t always have to be a blazer and trousers. This cardigan is a fun alternative, and will keep you super cozy.
The great thing about a wrap-style coat, if you can wear anything underneath it and look more put together. I’m so excited to be able to wear this Reiss coat more often as the temperatures drop. I’m in a size 6, and love the tie-belt detail. You can even opt to not tie it and take the belt out of the jacket.
The next camel coat outfit is this casual but classic look. The two-toned slingback shoes add a bit of sophistication and dresses up the overall look. You could also dress it down and wear a regular flat.
You’ll find me in this outfit all fall and winter long. These leggings don’t attract pet hair, or your own hair for that matter. These cashmere socks are a must, if you love a good pair of warm socks in the winter. They make a great gift option, too!
A camel coat is easy to style and create a chic outfit with minimal effort, which is key most days as a mom. Pair it with your favorite pair of jeans, a white top, and booties and then you’re out the door.
If you haven’t tried any Spanx black work pants yet, they are my absolute favorite work pants. Nonetheless, this outfit is the perfect business casual outfit with the cropped flare pants and the mock neck bodysuit.

A camel duster is another camel coat silhouette you can work into your wardrobe. I styled simple black pants with a white tee, and layered the duster over the top. This look has many of the basics every workwear wardrobe needs.
This outfit was part of my Amazon fall capsule wardrobe that you all loved! It’s a look-for-less option to the Juliette cardigan. Though it doesn’t have quite the wool count the Juliette does, it looks very similar to the style of it.
This is a great example of how you can dress the Reiss coat down a bit with straight jeans and booties. You can wear a white sweater instead of a white button down, if it’s more on the chilly side. Chunky sweaters and jeans go together like peanut butter and jelly. It just always feels right.
If you’re looking for more street styles, try wearing a longer camel coat with black leggings and boots. You’ll feel comfortable and trendy while running errands in this look. This also makes a great travel outfit, too.

Outwear is a great wardrobe piece to invest in because it can last for years and years. And if you live somewhere where it’s very cold throughout the fall and winter, having a quality outerwear piece is important. Some of my favorite retailers to purchase designer-label or high-end camel coats are:
The next option is another long camel coat by Ralph Lauren. It has a very similar silhouette to the Karen Miller. However, it has cuffed sleeves adding even more sophistication to already beautiful coat. It’s also a really rich camel tone – actually called “New Vicuna” on their site that’s perfect for the fall and winter. It has a blend of materials too of wool, polyamide and cashmere.
This Ted Baker midi wool wrap coat has a unique design with a convertible collar. You can wear it crossed over, similar to what a trench coat does. Or you can wear the collar spread out. This coat has a mixture of wool, polyamide, and cashmere, and also comes in black.
Camel coats aren’t going out of style. When deciding on purchasing one, you want to get one that you truly love and that will sufficiently keep you warm throughout the fall and winter. Be sure to weigh the pros and cons of each, and remember to look at the wool percentage compared to the price point. I hope this post inspires you to style a camel coat this season!
