If you had to choose which colour you thought would look the most expensive, would you think of picking camel?
In the Shoppersbase office, we are always looking for new fashion tips and advice so that we can pass it on to our readers.
So when we read an article that highlighted the advantages of wearing this particular colour, we wanted to explore it further.
You often see celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Alexa Chung wearing this colour. This is because it not only compliments other colours in the spectrum, but in any texture or fabric, it simply looks luxurious.
Whatever the shade, whether it is a light touch, or a deep tan, it represents class and high quality.
It optimises any outfit when there is a splash of it, and instantly upgrades a casual look to a stylish and sophisticated level.
What we love about this colour so much, is that it literally does go with anything.
HOW TO WEAR CAMEL
Or team a camel sweater with a white shirt and pants to break up an all-white summer outfit.
This colour layers well in differing contrasts, so pop a lighter skirt or pants with a blouse then finish off with a jacket in a contrasting shade.
It also tones down a black combination, which not many other colours manage to do. You can wear all black but by popping on a camel tee-shirt, or gillet, you draw the eye away from the dark hues.
This type of shade is perfect if you love wearing animal prints, as practically every camel hue is incorporated in a leopard, cheetah or tiger pattern. Simply pick one shade out and compliment it.
You can also swap your typical leather pieces for camel coloured alternatives. Tanned coloured biker jackets are way more chic than their black leather cousins, and a skirt in this colour simply screams class.
This is one shade that, because it’s a neutral colour, it basically teams up well with any other hue.
It immediately adds value and a high-quality feel to your outfit, whether the item was expensive or not.
