The Camel Coat You Should Invest In

Hi I’m Julia and I am addicted to buying coats. Ever since I first started shopping for myself, I have without fail treated myself to at least one coat every year (okay definitely at least two – new seasons call for new coats okay!) and this year has been no exception. In fact, this year I have actually bought FOUR new coats…what can I say, it’s an addiction.

But despite my love of outerwear, I am quite the fusspot when it comes to buying a new coat. I quite often favour a more expensive, high quality garment over more throwaway fashion types (although I do have a stunning baby blue Primark coat which could rival a Zara purchase). For the last few years I have been in constant search for a camel coat to add to my collection and whilst so many high street stores have released their own versions, they’ve never quite hit the mark for me.

And then about a month ago I stumbled across the camel coat of dreams in & Other Stories. Oversized whilst having a defined waistline and tie belt, it’s the perfect best of all worlds coat when it comes to practicality, comfort and style. Made from an alpaca wool blend with tortoiseshell button detail, the texture is so soft and the material so premium, I instantly fell in love. But the colour of the coat was a major selling point for me. Many other camel coats that I have come across have tended to be much too dark and more tan in colour to me. With a camel coat, I’m looking for a buttery soft, light, well…camel colour…!

I believe coats, bags and shoes are the ultimate investment pieces, the pieces that should be considered when you’re in the mood to splurge. This coat for example came in at £165 (with 10% off when you subscribe to the mailing list…thank me later) and I honestly have no regrets. For me, that is a lot of money to spend on a coat at this point in my life. Of course, in the future I hope £165 seems like pennies but you get my drift.

To me, the camel coat is a timeless classic and so spending that bit extra on a good quality one is a no-brainer as I will reap the rewards for years to come. How do you feel about investment pieces? How much would you be willing to spend on a new coat? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments on the post below!
