It seems strange writing this on a 30 degree day, but I’ve just returned from winter in the UK and autumn is just around the corner in Australia.
For me, a key item in any autumn and winter wardrobe is a wool camel coat. It is something that is going to last and is a great neutral basic item. A camel coat, like shoes and handbags, can be worn and paired with so many different pieces in your wardrobe.
I have had a camel coat since University days but after trying my last one on, I knew it was time to get a new one. I had worn it every winter but styles and fits have changed, as had my style. So before I headed back to the UK in December last year, I found the coat I was after.
It’s from the Marks and Spencer ‘Autograph’ collection. It is long, has a tailored fit, feels lovely to wear and above all, it keeps me warm.
To look good in a wool camel coat you don’t need to break the bank. This was £99. I couldn’t believe it, after looking at the prices of coats in Sydney stores and my favourite online sites.
I wore it so much while being back in the UK, and will be wearing it again in a few months on cold days here in Sydney. This is going to be in my wardrobe for many years.
