Camel is one of those difficult shades to come to grips with.
Some absolutely love all shades of the camel tree and others find it difficult. Camel can wash your colouring out and make the skin tone sallow. Hair has a lot to do with how the beige shades fit but more importantly so do the accessories.
If silver is your hair colour of choice then camel can be a welcome addition. As much as we love all pieces black and white, a camel infusion can be another fast track option. It’s just not quite so easy.
Camel can be challenging.
*Wear one piece at a time and that can mean any top, jacket or coat but only one.
*Black and white is the ideal pants companions.
*Camel looks brilliant with dark lips.
*Add extra cheek colour and a dash of bronzer to the make-up routine.
Gold jewellery or pearls – hoops in particular – are a game changer.
Don’t be afraid.
I have seen women wear camel with red and even bright yellow to look totally fabulous.
A simple camel V or round neck sweater with those white jeans I mentioned yesterday is another go-to I love. It’s not quite as familiar as the black and white blouse options but it is one I want to try more often.
For me, it needs a red or even a raspberry pink lip – a strong statement to brighten my skin tone and lose any feeling of drab.
The V is my favourite, worn slouchy with a pant with pockets, cropped above the ankle and my white sneakers. Oh and a stack of vintage gold bracelets. Tomorrow sorted. xv
V Or Round?
