Meghan Markle, Amal Clooney, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—what do all these celebs have in common? Aside from being impossibly chic, they all have a certain classic style sensibility and are unwavering in their elevated taste. We've come to rely on this crop of style stars for their consistently polished ensembles, and although we could go on and on about what makes their style so good, there's one timeless piece they wear every winter that we need to talk about: camel coats.
Without fail, this celeb-adored coat style pulls a look together instantly. The camel coat outfits our favorite classic style stars wear on repeat are no doubt high-end, but the best part about the style is how even the affordable versions easily pass for designer. Just take a look at managing editor Michelle Scanga's coat, which you'd never know she really scored at Forever 21 years ago. Celebs and editors all agree that the timeless coat is the ultimate outerwear investment, but in case you want to see just how good it looks IRL, keep reading to get inspired by our favorite camel coat outfits. Then, shop our picks.
