British brand Jaeger first made coats from camel hair following a shortage of wool after World War II, sparking our never-ending love affair with this perennial wardrobe favourite that shows no signs of slowing. Indeed, from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to King Charles, the iconic coat oozes elegance and never seems to fall out of fashion.
When it comes to finding the perfect silhouette and flattering soft toffee hue among the swathes of designer camel coat offerings, trust Ralph Lauren to get you over the hump. Unlined and cut from a soft wool and cashmere blend, this sumptuous mid-length wrap coat, £649, is the ideal piece to elevate your daytime look as we transition into the colder months. Simply pair with a camel-coloured turtleneck, leather pencil skirt and black knee-high boots and you're good to go.
