Camel Calls For Classics.

So, Recently Ive Noticed A lot Of Khaki/Camel Colors Coats Being Work. Usually If Its Not Black, Its Khaki/Camel. And Im Loving It. Alright Now First Lets Have A Little Lesson In Color And Fashion. So A lot Of The Coats Ive Noticed Are Camel Colored. This Color Is Also Very Popular For A Classic Coat, Which Is Referred To As The "Polo Coat". From The 1920s The Coat Was Worn By Men And In This Specific Color Because It Was Made Out Of Camel Hair. It Was A Wrap Style Coat Featuring A Belt But Then Soon Changed To Having Buttons. Heres An Article About The "Polo Coat" From Gentlemens Gazette If You'd Like To Read More Into It. Now, Of Course Women Adapted This Style Of Coat, But Not Too Many Changes To It. Fast Forward To 1981, Max Mara Released Its Most Known Item, Style #101801 Is All Its Know As, But We Can Call It The "Camel Coat". Max Mara Creates Such Classic Coats They're Known For Them (Below, Kim K. A Coat From Max Mara). And For The Lesson In Color, Below I Found What "Khaki" Color Is, And What "Camel" Color Is. Khaki Is Brighter Than Camel. Also In Fashion When You Search "Khaki" Whatever, You'll Find A Dark Green Color ("Army Green"). Thats Because It Is A Shade (Khaki + Black) Of Khaki. The Color Range Is From Beige To Brown.Alright So Now That We Have Some History And A Lesson, Lets Get Into This Camel Coat Trend. It Really Came Back During 2010, But I Now See A lot Of Bloggers Wearing It This Winter.
