There are some styles of coat that are destined to become cornerstones of your wardrobe – the trench, the pea coat, the shearling jacket. But none deliver that “forever feeling” as well as a heavy camel coat. An heirloom buy destined to shore up your style for years to come, as those fortunate enough to be in possession of an Eighties Max Mara number will know, a caramel camel coat is the stealth trophy purchase for autumn/winter 2017. From Chloé’s supersized lapels on its ankle-grazing coat, to JW Anderson’s twist on a classic with jolly crochet sleeves, to a more straight-forward but no less desirable belted option at Acne Studios, we’ve trawled the market for the best styles to buy now. Here are Vogue’s favourite camel coats to cosy up inside, this bonfire night and beyond.
