It’s all about grown up luxury this autumn with the perennial camel coat taking centre stage as the ultimate investment.

Beige has become such a huge trend this year that Net-a-Porter increased stock in neutral tones by 25% describing it as ‘the biggest luxury womenswear trend of 2019”. It’s hard to beat Max Mara’s take on the camel coat for those with deep pockets so to speak, or indeed two saddle bags like its Autumn Winter 2019 take.

Here’s a brand that has long understood the power of layered beiges, every season reinventing the camel coat in all its glory for a hefty sum. Good ole Penneys offer a bargain buy at €35 and there’s plenty of mid-range offerings in between including Next’s winter white teddy duffle for those who may not wish to commit to another camel coat.

Accessories as just as muted with crossbody bags adding a sense of practical luxury. Again there’s something for every budget from New Look’s patent croc bag for €24.99 to Wandler’s Hortensia’s minibag for €850 if you want to treat yourself.

As ever, it’s worth checking out what those savvy street stylers are up to before putting your outfit together, if you’re that way inclined. We love Irina Linovich’s take on sophisticated beiges at Paris Fashion Week and Alexa Chung’s nonchalance stepping out for a Victoria Beckham dinner in London.

The best part about our love of beige shades, they never go out of fashion. You can rest assured, any purchase will last the test of time in your wardrobe as blaring neon and clashing prints trends come and go.
