A Gentleman’s Wardrobe Staple // Camel Coat

From JustLuxe content partner Southern Gents.

If every gentleman has one piece of outerwear, it’s undoubtedly a camel topcoat. It’s arguably the most versatile piece one can own during colder temperatures, simply because, it’s such an easy item to wear and effortlessly pulls together any look.

Whether you’re heading to the office or having a night out with the boys, look no further. We’ve compiled a short list of styles to get the very best of this wardrobe staple.

1. Office/business look

Almost any professional suiting combo will look amazing under your camel topcoat. And if suits aren’t your typical office attire, don’t worry. This speaks to the versatility of the camel coat, as it pairs seamlessly with both professional and business casual ensembles. Opt for a pair of suit trousers, a sleek turtle neck and you’ve got yourself a relaxed yet professional pair of shoes. Add a pair of oxfords, monk strap, tassel or penny loafers and you’re ready to take on the cooler temperatures with class.

2. Off duty is still dapper

So you’re off the clock and looking to score a good time. Awesome! Simply grab your favorite turtleneck or crew neck sweater, slim-fitting denim and a pair of loafers, Chelsea boots or non-athletic/vintage sneakers. Khakis or chinos are also a great choice here.

A patterned scarf is always a nice touch. You’ll stand out in this GQ casual ensemble and you’ll definitely turn some heads.

3. Street Style Gentleman

How about kicking it with friends at your favorite sports bar? Time to ditch the dressier elements of your wardrobe and keep things comfortable yet stylish.

For cooler temperatures, throw on a hoodie and a pair of medium to light-wash distressed jeans as a base layer. For footwear, your favorite pair of athletic high-top sneakers, Chelseas, or lug-soled boots instantly pulls it all together.

It’s time to kick back and relax, so don’t forget to throw on some accessories. A color-blocking ball cap, beanie, or slicing fedora will take things to the next level.

Contrary to popular opinion, style is true freedom of self-expression, so don’t always feel the need to play it safe. A camel coat is a staple that every gentleman should own. Be creative with how you decide to wear your coat and do it with confidence.

Again, we hope you enjoyed reading this and that we inspired you to style your own camel coat look.
