There are many brands that specialise in this particular breed of expensive-looking outerwear. Max Mara, for example, is known for its camel coats and has been producing the most iconic versions for many years, including its Manuela version. On the high street, though, we've noticed some labels are especially good at creating them on a smaller budget: H&M and Mango are always our first stops when we're looking to replenish our outerwear selection.

Aïda gives her Frankie Shop camel coat a downtime spin with fitted trousers and white trainers. 

Lately, single-breasted camel coats in oversized silhouettes have caught our eye. But there are so many other options around. Although a classic robe style will always tick the boxes, sometimes, it's good to experiment with different silhouettes to suit your personal style tastes and to make your camel coat feel more current, should that be your desired aesthetic. Either way, though, this is a coat that's hard to get wrong.

As such, we decided to make finding your perfect one easier by rounding up the most impressive styles for your consideration. Go on.
