Camel is an easy-to-wear and combine colour, a mandatory item in any girl’s wardrobe. Our editor, Fernanda Langhammer, styled three looks using key pieces painted in the earthy shade and pastel hues. Check it out!
The Classy Lady
Before buying the classic black cloak, try to pick a khaki overcoat. The colour is more versatile and easier to mix and match with other shades. The purchase is a ‘buy now, wear forever’ kind of item. For a safer choice, opt for straight cuts which usually go well with most body shapes. For an adventurous contour, go for different designs such as this A-line piece. When combined with soft or dark pink, the result is a new level of traditional elegance. Finalise the look with tailored trousers and animal print flats.

The Hippie Charm
Midi or long skirts are for bold girls! The calf or ankle length has the ultimate pizzazz. The fashion rule that only tall girls should embrace this trend is not a rule anymore. If you like a striking visual, pair it with high heels and don’t forget to opt for soft colours on the upper body. The composition will definitely work for shorter ladies as well. Always look for balance; proportion and the right cut is 80 per cent of any look. The shoulder bag and cool necklace breaks the seriousness of the composition creating a cool laid-back flair.

The Casual Beat
Are you a sneakers fan? No worries, the tan shade also works for you. To give an upgrade to your relaxed style, there’s nothing better than a cool pair of trousers. Forget about straight and boring cuts, unusual designs are the items to look for. The turtle neck top helps to elongate the silhouette. So, no heels? No problem! The final touches are in the accessories. An ethnic scarf sets the tone to your personal preference. If folk is not your favourite pattern, you can also go for geometric forms like triangles or circles.
