If there’s only one outerwear piece I rely on to take my outfits to the next level every fall season, it’s probably the camel coat. There’s just something about the warm, rich color and tailored style that feels expensive and chic. I also like that you can wear it with anything from athleisure outfits to workwear pieces and night out looks – and it makes you look more stylish. There so many stunning options to pick from right now whether you’re in the market for an investment piece or want to add a new silhouette to your rotation. I pulled together my favorites below along with some fresh ways to wear a camel coat this fall.

1. With An All-White Outfit
There couldn’t be a more perfect transitional piece than the camel coatigan. If you don’t already own one, you should probably add it to your wardrobe right now. It’s a mix between a coat and a cardigan, combining features of both garments. It’s open in the front like a cardigan but has the structure of a coat. To kick off your fall outfits, simply layer your camel coatigan over an all-white outfit. I like that it feels light enough for that summer-to-fall transitional period.
2. With Jeans & Matching Booties
As temperatures start to drop early in the mornings or after the sun goes down, you can incorporate a camel coat into your everyday denim outfits. I love matching my booties to my coat for an effortless but cohesive look.

3. With Monochromatic Pieces
One of my favorite things about the camel coat is that it’s instantly luxe. You can up the chic factor by pairing it with pieces in similar colors, like a beige sweater dress and tan over-the-knee boots.
4. With An All Black Outfit
During the fall and winter timeframes, I tend to wear a lot of black outfits. You can break up the dark color palette by draping a camel coat over the shoulders. A tailored, long camel coat always looks really sophisticated with black leather pants.

5. With Faux Leather Leggings, Mules & An Oversized Sweater
As the days get cooler, opt for comfort and style by wearing your camel coat with faux leather leggings and an oversized sweater. You just need to add a pair of mules for the perfect weekend – or errands outfit.
6. Cinched At The Waist
A camel coat always looks really chic and feminine when belted at the waist. This style trick works especially well with boxy, oversized cuts to give them more shape.

7. With Neutral Layers & Classic Pumps
During the work week, you can easily style your camel coat with neutral layers and classic pumps. Don’t just stick to black and cream tones though. This season, play with olive green, chocolate brown, and rust layers for that cozy fall vibe.
8. With A White Sweater Dress & Over-The-Knee Boots
A camel coat paired with a white sweater dress has to be one of my favorite fall outfit combinations ever. It never gets old and is flattering on all body types when you add some over-the-knee boots.

9. With Leggings & A Tunic Sweater
A tunic sweater and leggings also look really chic beneath a camel coat. For a bold statement look, opt for a coat with a drapey, waterfall collar or a wrap-style coat.
10. With A Pop Of Color
You can also brighten up your camel coat by wearing a pop of color underneath. Two of my favorite colors to pair with camel are burgundy and green. You can also play with prints, like leopard, and camel this season. Your options are really endless.
