My MANy Bags Trendspotting #199

Below: Camel coloured coats have always been favoured by guys in winter... a good neutral colour that goes well with navys, greys and blacks, brightening up these sombre winter hues. Camel colour also matches well to patterns. Camouflage prints? Perfect!

Camel Coloured Coats For Winter: Is It Time To Invest In One?

Okay, camel coloured coats are not exactly a trend, seeing how they have always been around in menswear. The neutral tone colour works as a good base to compliment many different hues, especially grays and blacks while not appearing dull. I love Camel colour against pattens. Camouflage pattern seem to work seamlessly with the colour. Even florals with spots of red are not a problem for this versatile colour... as demonstrated by Simon Marchetti. In long wool overcoat designs, they can be worn over suits for a wallstreet power executive look. Stay sharp while keeping toasty warm at the same time.

So is it time to invest in this timeless piece? Especially when the newly launched Maison Martin Margiela with H&M's overcoat with inverted lapels is both aesthetically pleasing while being conceptually unique. Decisions, decisions, decisions... What say you?
