Camel is the New Black | Wishlist

Seeing as I’m usually the world’s number one monochrome fan, it’s taken me a bit by surprise how head over heels in love with the camel trend I’ve fallen. Maybe it’s the 70s vibes, or maybe it’s how effortlessly elegant it is… or maybe it’s the fact that it looks like it will hide dirt really well. Okay, it’s definitely that last one. The point is, camel is set to be huge this season and I can’t wait for payday to roll around so I can stock up on all of the above.

The fedora and sleeveless jacket are top of my list (though I’ll have to be careful not to wear them together, unless I want to look like a private investigator), but what do you all think? And are you a fan of the camel trend in general?

    still obsessed with camel, i’ve seen some amazing all camel outfits (it really is the new balck) and the roll neck you picked is a great camel basic for the wardrobe, love the trend!

      YES, I’ve seen amazing head-to-toe camel looks too – actually looks much more wearable than I would have thought, so definitely need to brave that one day! Thanks for the comment 🙂 xx

      Well coming from a girl who wears black pretty much 24/7, this would be a mojor change… but I think i could start with those shoes or the hat:)

        And they would both look perfect with… black 😉 xx

    Oh I love camel, camel coat is the most needed item missing from my wardrobe. That sleeveless one is cool but when would you wear it? If it’s cold enough for a coat you need sleeves no?

    • Claire March 17, 2015 / 2:13 pm

      Tbh I would love a full coat but seeing as I bought so many coats and jackets this winter I’m not sure I can justify it – so in steps the sleeveless number, haha! I see your point about the sleeves, so I think I would be waiting until it’s a little bit warmer 😉 xx

    I love the camel trend, that jacket is perfect! xxx

      I have to agree! Thanks for commenting 🙂 xx

      I do think it suits brunettes more, and being blonde I am always a bit paranoid in whites/creams that I’ll blend into one! xx

    Camel is totally the new black I think it’s so drool worthy, I wear my camel coat everyday and wonder if I am getting boring, but i really want the sleeveless one now haha! I also think those trousers would look hot, I just don’t know if I am ready to be THAT grown up yet. I like non heel necessity clothes;) xxx

    • Claire March 18, 2015 / 1:12 pm

      Camel’s NEVER boring, for some reason it just becomes a classic or a staple haha! The sleeveless version should definitely be added to your collection 😉 xx

    • Claire March 18, 2015 / 1:13 pm

      I agree, really wish I had invested in a proper camel coat at the start of the winter as I was so jealous of everyone else’s! xx

    I love the colour camel. I think it is a good alternative to black. Xx

  6. Amy March 18, 2015 / 10:40 pm

    Love these shades, I really need to stop wearing so much black! It’s just so timeless and goes with anything haha. Love the roll neck jumper xx

    • Claire March 19, 2015 / 12:55 pm

      I’m the same, just love a bit of monochrome! So hopefully the fact that camel’s neutral still will mean it’s quite an easy transition haha 🙂 xx

    Oh I do love a bit of camel, so this trend couldn’t be anymore fitting. Pass me the camel coat any day!

      I really need to get my grubby mitts on it too! xx

    • Claire March 19, 2015 / 3:49 pm

      I completely agree! 🙂 xx

    • Claire March 20, 2015 / 12:08 pm

      It’s just everywhere and I’m obsessed! Accessories might be the best way to start 🙂 xx

    I SO want a floppy camel coloured hat! I don’t feel like a proper blogger without one
    -ok a bit dramatic but I need an excuse to buy something I will probably only wear a handful of times!




    • Claire March 22, 2015 / 8:37 am

      Hahaha tbh I have worn the fedora about four times excluding today (I’m trying to brave it more!) so I’m not sure why I’m convinced I would wear a camel one so much. But.. WE NEED THEM xx
