Music Suggestion: James Bay – Let It Go
Are you a Dapper Dan? Maybe your name isn’t dan, but how many times a week do you knot up and walk out the door in formal gear? This edition shows just how dapper a camel topcoat can look when paired with your dressy winter staples. Everyone else is wearing grey or navy so why not step outside the box and be the one step ahead of the game?
One important thing to remember when venturing into the realm of camel topcoats is to simplify the rest of your ensemble. Use dark tones and simple dress shirts to really draw attention to the coat and make it a statement piece. Aim for one that fits a few inches above the knees with slim lines for exaggerated crispiness. You want it to be just big enough to fit over a suit but not so large that you lose yourself in it, use discretion. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to try a camel topcoat, it’s an instant classic that is universally flattering. Walk with confidence.
