Style Diary | The Camel Coat

It’s safe to say I have a bit of an obsession with winter coats. This is my third post about buying a new coat in two years of blogging, oops! When I joined the real world and started working I bought this coat but two years later it’s gone quite bobbly and doesn’t look very smart anymore.


On Saturday I went shopping in Bristol and I was on the lookout for a stylish coat I could wear to work this winter. There were lots of coats I liked but I couldn’t find one that was good quality and wouldn’t start falling apart anytime soon. That was until I spotted this camel coat in Monsoon.


I don’t usually think to shop in Monsoon because it’s slightly more expensive but you can be sure their clothes are high quality and I always think it’s worth spending a bit more on something like a coat when you know it will last a long time.


Long length and made from a soft wool-blend with concealed button fastenings and side slant pocket details, this camel coat is a classic that will never go out of fashion. Not to mention the faux fur collar – I can never resist anything fluffy – which is removable so you can attach/detach it depending on the occasion.


Tapered in at the waist, the coat creates an elegant, sophisticated silhouette and will be perfect for wearing to work – it almost makes me feel like a real grown up when I wear it. I’m always a bit wary about wearing the colour camel as it’s nearly the exact shade as my hair but luckily this coat complements my complexion rather than making me look like a beacon of beige!


Now I just have to resist buying anymore coats, for another year at least…
