My Dream Camel Coat and 14 Less-Expensive Ones I'd Buy in the Meantime

The best camel coat

Something about me: I love a good camel coat. But who doesn't? It's truly the perfect winter clothing item. Goes with everything, can be dressed up or down, is timeless, looks expensive—these are a few of the many qualities this universal wardrobe staple possesses. Given the appeal, it's no wonder there's a slew of camel coat options from brands at every price point on the market. But one, in particular, is so perfect that it crosses my mind about once a day: the Annecy Oversized Wool and Cashmere-Blend Coat by popular Swedish brand Totême (which is beloved by fashion people and celebrities around the world). 

Totême excels at luxe, minimal pieces that also make a statement (thanks to features like ruching and dramatically puffed sleeves). Two years ago, the brand released a camel cashmere-and-wool wrap coat—the Annecy Coat, which has become a permanent fixture in its collection, likely because of its popularity (it has been restocked repeatedly). The coat features a perfectly oversize fit, draped collar, and side slits, and is the perfect weight for layering or just wearing with a T-shirt on more mild days. Not only that, celebrity fans of the coat include the very stylish Jennifer Lawrence and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. 

Which brings me to the only thing stopping me from buying the beautiful Totême coat immediately: the $1100 price tag. It's certainly something to aspire to, but in the meantime, I scoured the internet for the best less-expensive camel coats. Whether you invest in the Totême one or go for one of the other more budget-friendly ones, you won't be disappointed.

Keep scrolling to shop my camel coats and to see Lawrence and Huntington-Whiteley (and other stylish women of Instagram) with my dream Totême one.
