The Lust List: Camel Cravings

Unless you’ve been hiding under a proverbial fashion rock, you may have noticed the preponderance of a certain neutral, camel, popping up in stores, runways, and sidewalks since Fall.  Fall fashion was all about a return to classic, no-fuss styles (with the notable exception of sequins, which were everywhere), and classic camel fit the bill. Camel was dubbed the fashion color for the fall and winter—a perfect neutral that complements everything in your wardrobe.  Some of my favorite go-to fashion folk, Net-a-Porter, Shop Bop,  and Saks Fifth Avenue created camel online shops where you can snag shirts, skirts, coats, accessories and more in this season’s it color. (Below, the Michael Kors look that launched our addiction.)

Camel is more than boring old khaki—it’s warm, rich, classy, and classic.  You can add a piece to your wardrobe to wear now, and we guarantee it’ll still be in your closet years down the road. So, if you’re looking for some much-needed respite from the daily grind (how hard was it to get out of bed this morning?), we suggest some online shopping. (There’s lots on sale!) Here are the camel pieces I’d love to add to my wardrobe.

A classic, knee-length wool coat that instantly makes you feel both warm and chic like those from DVF (sale-$486), J.Crew ($325), Michael Kors ($250), and Ann Taylor (sale-$199).

A soft cardigan—whether a short and classic Jackie O style from Ann Taylor ($59.50) and Gap (sale-$39) or a long boyfriend cardigan with preppy touches like elbow patches and leather knob buttons from Rugby (sale-$99).

A seasonless utility skirt like this runway piece by Derek Lam (on sale but still far our of our price range at $525) or a slightly more affordable version by Tracy Reese ($245). (Hey, we call it the Lust List for a reason.)

And, of course, because we Bitches love dresses, a classic camel sheath like those by Catherine Malandrino ($475), DVF ($385)  and Milly (sale-$172) to dress up or down for the office or for a romantic dinner for two.
