Camel looks so warm and inviting in a cozy cape, resistant to hazardous weather in a structured raincoat and so modern and chic in a sophisticated suit. Designers are excited by the neutral tone for Pre-Fall 2010, as seen by the many collections that embraced the shade.
And why wouldn’t they be? The color is sophisticated, looks good on almost everyone, and will compliment those bright staples you find to pair it with for fall.

Yes, neutrals are great for spring, but throw me in a camel coat during the winter and all is well in the world again. Thanks to the designers for thinking of our sanity for Pre-Fall 2010.
