Nothing says hello to Fall better than the understated and luxurious classic Max Mara camel coat.
My favorite color combo of the season is black and tan (or camel and gold). The rich honey tone looks good on blondes and brunettes and complements any color combination.
I especially love it paired down with soft gray, navy, and dark brown, or glammed up with bright reds, pinks, and leopard accents. Thrown over a pair of winter white slacks and turtle neck is absolutely stunning!
If you're going to invest in one piece this season, a coat with clean lines and understated color will carry you through season after season. Choose shoes, purses, and accessories in bolder colors and patterns to
give your look a kick! The October 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar featured these 3 stylish ladies wearing the same coat in 3 different ways.
...And here's how I would personally rock the look...
...lots of black leather, tortoise accents, gold, gold, and more gold, white chunky cable knit sweaters, leopard, red croc, and of course, don't forget the adorable Viszla doggy with the matching coat!
